I have been amazed at the response to my thoughts on Sarah Palin. I thought that perhaps I was too strident or off the wall but I only seemed to have raised one blood pressure. Oh well. Someone wiser than I -- paraphrasing here -- said that opinions are like bellybuttons -- everybody has one and is entitled to one. (The someone used a different, less polite part of human anatomy if you get my drift.)
What annoyed me is that the offended party appeared to assume that I am an Obama supporter with the implication that I'm left wing despite my weekly statements that I have not made a decision and find BOTH major party candidates less than attractive.
If you read here frequently, you know that I am a Constitutionalist. I believe that our civil liberties are under attack with heinous bills like HR 1955 and SR 1959 and have written often and at length about both. These are merely two pieces of legislation that have put the liberty guaranteed us by the Constitution under attack. There are others and I'm not even mentioning all the violations of the various amendments by the Bush administration.
I've pretty much decided that regarding Election 2008, I will do as I am exhorted to do by my priest when faced with a crisis of faith: examine my conscience and act accordingly. I recommend that others do the same and vote their conscience. This isn't a horse race or a beauty pageant -- it's the future of our country and I want to be able to sleep at night and die an honest woman when I look back on this election.
