The answer: I'm not sure.
Why? I'm just not sure I have enough trust in ANY of the candidates.
Yesterday while grocery shopping, Anna asked me if I was a republican or a democrat? The question surprised me simply because a) she is freakishly smart and b) I'm not sure I know anymore. So that's exactly what I told her. Do I support abortion? No. Do I support gay marriage? No. But I gotta tell you, I don't love John McCain. Not even sure I like him.
So then he goes and gets cutey patootie Sarah Palin, who SHOULD really appeal to me....but she doesn't. Not yet anyway. Why? Because she is a momma to 5 kids and I, myself, being a momma of 4 kiddos find it hard to imagine her being the 2nd in command to the entire United States of America while being an effective mom. I know I shouldn't judge her, but it honestly just bothers me. All I do is run a consignment sale and I feel like I can barely keep my head about water with my kids. Running the country? No way!
So I plan to spend some time this week reading up on Mrs. Palin because to be honest, if I do vote, it will probably be for the republicans, but if I can't shake this yucky feeling I am getting, I may just not vote.
BUT I PROMISE: If I don't vote, I won't complain. I can't stand people who complain about the state of the union but don't use their right to vote to change it.
