Did you all vote?

I did.

I must not be on the pulse of what the majority wants because everything I voted for...did not swing my way.

First of all, the selection for the President's job.  I have to say we deserve the President we voted for and I just hope President Obama focuses on real issues and do what's truly right and not what's popular to win a popularity contest.  I felt like his whole campaign was based on he being "cooler and more  connected" than Mitt Romney.

However, I want to put it out there that Mitt won me over in the second debate when he put emphasis on parents and parenting being the number one deterrent to the gun control-not more legislation.  I admire a man who speaks what he believes.

Another measure which passed that I am totally pissed off about is the legalization of recreational marijuana.  Here's my beef.  Your main push for it is because it will bring in revenue?!  What about what's right?  The thing about smoking this crap is smoking this crap and those around you having to inhale it.  Secondhand smoke.  How many lungs and brain cells are we risking in the name of revenue?  We are an impressionable society. IF it's legal, we are more apt to try and use it.  I will go on record in saying it will cost us more to treat the residual effects of marijuana users-lung cancer, being unmotivated, and just crime.

I'm sorry to rant about these two issues. I'm just frustrated with raising my kids to be a productive and decent human beings and it's come down to who's popular and how can we make more money.  Sad.

I leave with this..."don't let other people's actions dictate your character.".
