Is it November Yet?

First, know that I don’t watch television.  It’s not a statement of any kind.  It’s as simple as we don’t get a signal where we live and we’re too cheap frugal to purchase cable.  So when people talk about the political issues I don’t know what most of them are talking about.  If I can’t find the information online I don’t know it unless it’s by way of overhearing other people’s opinion.

I don’t really know if I want to vote this year to be honest.  In past elections I’ve only voted to keep people out of office (didn’t work so well).  I don’t really think that any one person can fix things.  Not to mention that I’m pretty sure it’s the people surrounding the president that are the ones really in charge. 

I can tell you this for certain.  I hate the political phone calls.  I only really use the house phone line for internet (yes, we still use dial up) so my cell is what I use for everything.  Since I find myself suffering through the economic stress that everyone else is when I see my caller ID show up with an unknown phone number I tend to panic for a second.  My stomach tightens and I start going down the list of bills that I have just to make sure that everything is in line and paid.  After realizing that I have everything under control and all bills are up to date.  I answer the call only to find out that I’ve panicked for nothing!  It’s all of these political calls.

I can tell you one thing for certain.  I’m not voting for anyone that has called and pestered me.  I really don’t agree with that method.  Leave me alone to make up my mind about your candidate.  Call me multiple times a week and I can guarantee I will not vote for your candidate.  Not happening.

What do you all think about it?

  1. I’m not voting in your poll simply because when they tell me they’ve “called to talk about the choices this election” I promptly tell them that I’m smart enough to make up my own mind and I don’t need anyone telling me what I should think just because they were rude enough to call and interrupt my very important life. I have no idea who has called me and who hasn’t. Great stress relief too. 🙂
