I am absolutely not interested in the outcome and results of the elections being held, as to the outcome of the one who may be the next presidential candidate. The elections being held are not in my area. Just imagine what it’s going to be next year, with the die-hard Republicans and die-hard Democrats.
I’m interested in my local area, and the problems that are so obvious. I definitely have my opinion about certain personalities and how deeply they are entrenched and at times, do voice my opinion in the hopes that things may change. My alternative is to get out and vote, because that’s what is needed. There are too many who “cry the blues” and just won’t bother on Election Day.
There is nothing more frustrating than when people get into a conversation about what they consider wrong with a certain person, with what may relate to them. “Give me a break,” if you feel so strongly about someone, call your representative, and encourage anyone who may feel the same way. As is said, there is strength in numbers, so think about it.
I recently did get a call from a representative from the A.A.R.P. to call Gov. Christie to give back to seniors the cut that was made. I can agree with this, as too many are in need and the potential loss of their homes. I’m curious to know how much money is dispersed for the benefit of education and seniors from the lotteries that we participate in, from the State. I’m also curious about the amounts involved, and those who make the decisions, and in which direction. How much is paid out in salaries and “perks” involved? There must be some kind of control, but it was probably settled a long time ago, and I’m not familiar with what goes on today. Is this what is called, “stirring the pot?”
