Politics and Phone Calls

It happened again yesterday afternoon. The phone rang and when I answered it and confessed to being the person the caller was looking for, the presidential campaign support bite was applied to my wallet.

Money--and being advised that there are only 152 days left to the election. I suppose that means 152 more campaign calls.

My problem is that I don't know who I am going to vote for. My problem with the leading candidates is that the are running on platforms that seem to be nothing more than: beat the other guy because we don't want him to be president.

Where is the vision for the country? Where is the strategy? Where is the way ahead and how we are going to transform the system into a beneficial bi-partisan working government?

It isn't there and, therefore at least so far, neither is my vote.

The phone call ended fairly abruptly when I indicated that I might be voting for Mickey Mouse.


Good.

When the candidates give me something to support then my vote and my wallet will follow.

Until then, I think a cartoon character can do a better job.
