7 Days and Counting

Here we are on the veritable eve of another election. Funny how quickly 4 years pass ... until this term. I'm so sick and tired of the mud-slinging, name-calling, and dirt-digging that I will be so glad to see Nov. 2nd come and go. I'm concerned that this nation won't be able to survive another 4 years of the Bush Machine, but I'm not sure about Kerry either. However, I am NOT one of the undecided. The following shares my view of the past 4 years. It's time for a change.

The Fabulous Invalid

For you, fabulous is most appropriate.

A Commander-In-Chief who chooses to
‘stay the course,’ whose myopic vision sees
only black-and-white, and who lacked
the information needed to commit an
all-volunteer army to a life of conscription

while the Patriot Act guards our shores
and borders and strips away personal
rights and liberties.

A conservative conservator who rapes this
land in the name of God and will leave a
legacy of debt to our children and to theirs.

A leader who thumbs his nose at the very
Constitution he swore [hand on Bible]
to protect and uphold.

So, whether I choose to look at you as
an invalid or as invalid really isn’t important.
What is important is that I refuse to play
the fabulous invalid with you.
