So I am doing my thing and minding my own business. Okay who am I kidding? I was searching the internet looking for some new deals on Kohls.com and printing coupons for my favorite things like Dunkin Donuts and Zone Bars. That was when I came across this story about this upcoming election and how in one state in particular they are calling for a Landslide.
Now as you know being Greek, and since us Greeks created politics I just had to check out what in the heck in the world were they talking about? See I was confused because like everyone else I have been mostly hearing about Obamacare and all the lying and misleading that went along with that bill of goods. So I read on.
Low and behold I found myself actually enjoying the fact that there is a very strong possibility that Chris Christy is going to win the New Jersey Gubernatorial election. Now I know there are a lot of “Christy-Haters” out there, and he’s not this Greek Girls favorite, there a lot of things about him I don’t agree with. However it is far better than the alternative. This got me to thinking “This could be a good thing.” Well of course anytime I see someone who is on the conservative side of things winning it is a good thing. But this is different because I was reading it in a mainstream media news article on Yahoo. What’s more is that the article went on to discuss how there are a number of very decisive elections being held all around the country.
This is the part that got me. The article talked about how few people actually pay attention to the local elections and only vote in the Presidential election. The point was and is that if we as a people, you know, “WE THE PEOPLE” (ah-hem selfish plug for my song) would actually unplug from Kardashian’s and the renaming debacle of the Washington Redskin’s and actually pay attention to the things that really matter, I wonder where our country would be.
What am I talking about? Well people listen up. If you are like me and you are sick and tired of all the nonsense going on around us such as Obamacare and all the mess that is going on in Washington DC, we need to do something. “What’s that Greek Girl? I need to do something?” Yes, it’s called get your butt up off your sofa this Tuesday, take a 1/2 hour shorter lunch break, go in to the office a little earlier or come home just a little later and get over to your local voting booth.
It is time we stand up, time we speak out, time WE THE PEOPLE take our country back and stop allowing the bureaucrats and political elite decide what is right and wrong for us and our families. For crying out loud even God Himself said, “If my people who are called by my name and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – Isaiah 43:7.
So this Tuesday, if you haven’t already cast your ballot through early voting or absentee ballot please get out and exercise your right and take part in helping restore our amazing and God-given country.
Blessings, Love & Music ~
