self portrait challenge ~ politic's me off...

...and personally hurts my head if I think about it too much right now.
I remember the day when there was no question about always voting with the party you were registered with. That's why it was such a taboo subject. People were so die hard and minds could not be swayed. So, why even bring it up and cause unnessary strife between two people?
This isn't about me telling you what political party I am registered with, this is about the fact that none of the candidates makes me feel all the things I am supposed to feel in backing them, not one. Safe? no.... Competent? no... Experienced? ...no.
So, I gently hold my head in hands that are lifting this country up in prayer to God in the hopes that things will end up fine, regardless of my indecision about who is the right person for this, oh so important job.
I am hopelessly confused and think we all need to go to Disneyland...maybe Mickey knows something I don't ;)

We feel the same way. Sometimes it helps to go to "The Happiest Place on Earth" just to detox.

When i think of politics in my country my head hurts too and my heart.

Maybe i should go to Paris. To visit Euro Disney, eat croissants and fall in love :D

I guess it is the price we pay with our pseudo-sophistication, worldliness and refusal to serve others with integrity.

dreamgirl does have an interesting idea.

We plan a trip to France this summer. I know we will eat croissants, we are in love, but we will take a river cruise from Paris to Normandy instead of Euro Disney.

Do not despair. Look for the blessing in all things. After all, look at all the folks who have come to know and love you via this mode of communication.

I have not often been truly stirred (and I know it's wrong) to lift up politicians and our country in prayer... but I am with you sweet sister we need to be on our knees.

I totally agree with your comments.
And thank you for the sweet words on my blog.

I feel the same. There is no one candidate that stands absolute in my mind. I vote for whomever is the best in my mind. I can't stand people that vote partylines for the sake of sticking to the party. If I had done that, I'd have voted for some scary people.

I pray, too. Let's hope enough of us do.

Couldn't agree more with your sentiments. Although I think I might nix Disneyland and go sit on a mountaintop and just pretend the whole human race doesn't exist for a while...sometimes I understand why God would get tired of all of us and want to just wipe the slate clean!
