I posted a question on Facebook the other day that read:
I’m feeling political today (can you tell?) Please POST HERE: Why you are FOR your candidate? With so much bashing of the “other guy,” I’m interested in what Romney and/or Obama has done or will do that makes you want them to take on the role as the leader of our country. Thanks! Opening up dialogue (from California to Alabama and in between). I think there are some folks on the fence that need to hear your voice.
To commemorate the 2012 election tomorrow, I’m going to post a response.
The following is from my mother, who has voted Republican her whole life. Just so you know, we do not talk politics much in my family. Some, but not much. But here she is, showing up as one of the few responders to this question. In fact, approximately 1% of my Facebook friends said something on the topic. I suppose that is better than none, but it is surprising that people do not want to engage in dialogue, but they are perfectly fine sitting in front of the TV for hour upon hour watching the stuff.
Anyway, here’s her piece:
