17 days and counting.....

17 days...that's when we'll turn the TV and radio back on in our house.  I hate campaign season almost as much as I hate bikini season.  All these words come from candidates mouths yet they never really say anything.  All the trash-talking commercials reminds me of playground antics.  I keep waiting for a commercial in which one candidate will profess about the other, "Yeah, well, he's a booger eating poo-poo head!!"

Obviously, I have strong opinions on who should lead our country and about what I feel should happen in the future.  I'm not going to try and persuade you to join my club because we all have to make up our own minds.  I think it's important for everyone to make their own decision not one based on what their spouse, parents, neighbors or friends think.  I strongly believe in the "agree to disagree" theory among friends.

However, sometimes it's hard to know which candidate is most in line with your way of thinking.  So to help, I would like to share this neat little quiz. is a website that allows you, the voter, to read through a series of issues and choose your stance on them.  It then matches you up with the candidate whose politics best matches. My only suggestion when taking the quiz is to click the option Choose another stance as it gives you a more in depth choice instead of just yes or no.   I would also suggest that you choose the additional questions too, as it gives a more accurate picture of where you stand on issues.

Since I love diversity among friends I would encourage you to share your results in the comment section.  One rule: NO HARASSMENT of each other!!  We have to remember, we're all Americans and in this together.  Each of us, through our own devices, wants the country to be prosperous.

Decidedly yours..........Deborah
