Just Some Rambling about Politics

Today's the day! The day we've all been waiting for (or at least all of America)...Ladies and Gentlemens, may i present...Election Day!! Today the anticipation is great. Two presidential candidates compete, who will win??? Nobody knows. All across America, people are lined up at different polling places to vote all day. And the numbers are so close, you actually cannot predict who will win this year's election. Or maybe you can. When it seems as though Obama is winning, Romney suddenly gains in the polls. But before you know it, Obama's in the lead again and vice versa. Blah!

I'm not usually a fan of politics. Believe me. Like have you seen those commercials where candidates slander their opponent and some brag about how good they are. How good they are, Yea Right! More like, how good they are in making themselves look good when they're not. Ha!

" [insert opponent's name here] has promised [insert good things here], but he has done [insert secrets and bad things the opponent has done here]. Don't vote for [insert opponent here] because you deserve better,, vote me for [insert position here]...'im [insert name here] and i approve this message"

Messages like these. I don't like them. They're vile, trecherous, and they are the biggest lies you have ever seen.
Like come on. You would waste your time campaigning just to tell viewers that your opponent is horrible. How about use that time to talk about yourself and how you'll benefit to us.

Why do they do it? I mean how else would they win. If they told the truth, nobody would vote for them. Obviously. So they lie to you and do whatever to win. They have no choice basically. But what do i know, i don't like politics anyways.

So this is it!! After today we will know who our President is.
Are you excited???? Well, i am!!!

Who Will Win The Election of 2012??
Will it be Romney?  Or maybe Obama?

Reasons Why I think Obama might win

1) He has the majority of minority votes, ex: Blacks/Hispanics/Women

2) Obamacare

3) Youth Power: I think he's the first president that got us young people interested in politics. Like for example during the debates almost all my friends and peers were watching the debate. Even though we're not even old enough to vote. So as a result, more youth are voting this year (Not me, boohoo i'm too young to vote).

4) Just cuz (*crosses fingers*): I really don't want Romney to win.

5) He wants our troops back home. End of the war in Afghanistan, and the down of the war in Iraq

I don't know what to expect, all i know is alot of people will be dissapointed. I hope that isn't me. :(

Searching for an Identity

“Who are you?”….*waits for an answer*
The hardest question to answer is always "Who are you?".
You don't think so? What would you usually answer the question with?
Most people would reply with their names.
I mean, think about it for a second. You’re talking to someone and they suddenly ask you “Who are you?”. (like I did, which in fact you gave me no answer to).
For a second, you are shocked. What can they be possibly asking? So you think,
“Ohh, my name... She must be asking for my name right?”
And there you go, you open your mouth and announce it for all the world to hear.
But what if this person already knows your name? Doesn’t that make it more confusing?
It makes you wonder, ‘My name isn’t enough, she wants to know more….but what?’
And because you have never thought about this question, you are at a lost for words.
Or maybe that’s just me…
Yeaa, I think its just me…
Nahh, I think its you too…Considering how you haven’t answered my question yet.
Anyways, you avoid the question because you don’t even know the answer.
“Who am i?”
“What does that question even mean?”
“Wow, this is really hard”
And while you think your heart into it, the other persons waiting…looking at you like you are a dunce. Or maybe just plain looking at you. Right.
Now you see where I’m coming from, that “Who are you?” is in fact the hardest question.
At this point you’re convinced. But chances are you’re stubborn like me and need more evidence.
You’re thinking,
 “Maybe this person just wants to know about me…yeaaa that’s it”
So you state your favorite color and your hobbies and whatever you think it is this person wants to know.
You haven’t answered the question. The question was “Who are you?” not, “What do I want to know?”
You see? Now you see where I’m coming from?
Why this is a hard question?…
Every time I get asked “Who are you?”
I realize that I never answer the question. Mostly because I don’t know the answer.
And like anyone, I would usually reply with my name.
“Who am I?”
I would really like to know. But this question can’t be answered with mere words.
Telling you my name might be the content answer that you’re looking for.
But it never leaves me content.
It keeps me wondering. How do I find what makes me, me?
How can I finally answer this question correctly?
 At this point you think I’m crazy and don’t know what I’m talking about.
Maybe you’re right. Maybe I need a break.
Maybe I need time to find out “Who I Am”
Well now I think it’s one of those hard questions that have very easy answers.
I’m ready now. Ask me again.
“Who are You?”
I am more than the words that fill my head.
I am more than that just a name.
World, I am Me
