Dreaming of Politics........



Or shall I say having political NIGHTMARES!! If any of you are Obama fans, please stop reading b/c you won't like what's on my mind. Actually, keep reading so I can change your mind, or at least encourage you to really research the candidates.

Am I alone in how frustrating this campaign for the presidency is? I mean ALL the news media is so bias it is ridiculous. Do they ever ask Obama any tough questions? NO. Do we know what he will do in Washington with all this "change" he's talking about? NO. Do they talk about how he's friends with a guy who bombed the pentagon 40 yrs ago and was happy about 9/11 attacks? NO. Do they talk about his support of horrifying partial birth abortions? NO. Do they criticize his wife for "not being proud to be an American, until now when her husband is running for President". NO. Does he have ANY and I mean ANY experience in managing ANYTHING? NO. Seriously, how the heck did he get the nominee? And why are Americans so ignorant that they actually listen and believe liberal media? Most people don't even research the topics at hand and what their candidate stands for. Try listening to 550am and 960AM - conservative talk radio. You will learn things that will blow your mind! And you won't hear them on TV b/c the liberal media doesn't want you to hear the good things about McCain and the bad things about Obama. They make Obama out to be some sort of hero. McCain is a TRUE HERO.

Now, I have not always been "into" politics. I admit, I usually just voted with whomever my hubby and Dad and brother thought was best - mind you always a conservative Republican. And I would watch the news to learn about the candidates- I didn't realize how corrupt it was at the time. But this time around I have really started enjoying learning about politics and the people who are making decisions that AFFECT MY FAMILY. (plus Joe recently told me he thinks it's sexy when a woman is involved in politics and current affairs) :-) I don't want higher taxes, I don't want to support terrorists by buying oil from them, I don't want a health care plan that the government chooses - IT WON'T BE GOOD HEALTH CARE - research the topic! I want a conservative that is PRO-LIFE, that will let me choose how I want to spend MY HARD EARNED MONEY, and I especially want a President that will PROTECT THIS COUNTRY and has the experience and guts to do so. I mean it truly scares me to think of Obama as President. I think our country will be a target of more terrorist attacks. Obama is a world class pansy. I just hope and pray that McCain gets elected. Plus, I LOVE SARAH PALIN. Sure she doesn't have as much "Washington" experience as previous VP picks might have had, but frankly I like that better. That means she's not so diseased in her mind about politics. I love that she's not afraid to "shake things up" and expose corruption. I love that they won't allow earmark spending. And I love that she brings youth to the McCain ticket. Plus she's a woman -so FINALLY SOME MULTI-TASKING in the big white house on the hill ! :-)

Okay, ranting and raving are over. I had to get this off my chest. Plus, I really have had two scary dreams about Obama winning. One where I heard some "classified info" that would harm his campaign, so he and his posse were chasing me around a cruise ship trying to catch me so I wouldn't tell anyone. :-) But seriously, it's unsettling. Register to vote if you haven't already. Request a mail in ballot - it's so easy to vote this way. Let's make the right choice and get McCain into the White House!

Amen!! I feel the same as you-this campaign for the presidency is the first time I've truly felt scared to death of what will happen if the WRONG people are elected to the White House. Everyone needs to get involved--VOTE and be HEARD!!

Go Alisa, get up on that soapbox!! I admit that I'm often ignorant when it comes to politics, but I do know enough to know that Obama is, like you said "a world class pansy"! Very well put :)

Kari said...

You go girl! I could learn a lot from you! Maybe you should run for office too!

Just K said...

I'm with you about the media. They are not doing their job. America is in for some worse trouble if voters aren't researching their choices.

Chelsea said...

I agree completely. I am scurred of Obama winning! And I have never been much into politics until I became a mom, I will never ever miss a chance to VOTE! I love the dream you had, so hilarious! the thing that drives me the most NUTS is that they always show the stupid celebrities on the red carpet bashing Maccain, and especially Palin, as if there is anything bad to say about her..she's fresh and done nothing wrong. Then they show Oprah and her posse crying at Obama's nominee acceptance speech, GAG me now! I can't take it anymore!! I hate HOllywood! Corruption!

Chelsea said...

p.s.
your comment cracked me up! ;)
You did turn out marvelous.

Wow Alisa, We're impressed! It never ceases to blow my mind how people think Obama is ready and mature enough to be our president. What happens if Joe Biden dies and Nancy Palosi becomes his advisor. Scarry! Next soap box for you is to learn about Proposition 8 in CA and how it will change all of our lives if same sex marriage is allowed. I'll send you the info. Corrupt liberal judges will be the downfall of America. I'm glad we'll have a God fearing conservative woman VP to stand by McCain's side in the White House. Love you sweetie, MOM

Alisa Larson said...

Mom, the prop 8 in CA is available for us to vote on as Prop 102 - Yes for Marriage. I'm sure your ward talked to you about it on Sunday, if you weren't there, I'll tell you about it. You can go to yesformarriage.com for more info on how to help. I've requested a sign for my yard, and I'm sure Joe and I will be helping with the phone lines to inform people about this important chance for our voice to be heard! Love ya!

Amen to that Alisa. Double Amen.

Totally got you! This is such a scary election. I just don;t get what all the celebraties are thinking endorsing Obama. It's like, hello? Do you guys even know what he stands for?
I've been listening to a lot of talk radio myself (Nathan makes fun of me) and am def learning a lot, and I agree that more ppl should pay attention instead of go with whats popular.

Jeppesen Family said...

ps, Melissa isn't registered to vote. We need to get on her about that!

Allie Cat said...

Alisa! I've been missing from the blog world for a while and I've had a comeback! Nice post... I agree with you. We have to do our part to find out all we can. I'm no politician, but I do know that it's a huge responsibility of mine to know and choose what is best for me and my children.

You look great, btw!
