Too bad...


I have been struggling lately. Struggling with the desire to publish my Republican views all over the internet. But I'll tell you why I haven't done so....

I think of people reading my blog, and I want my blog to be fun. I want it to be a source of inspiration, and a place where people can continue to see what they initially thought was good about my blog.

I think of all the otherwise great blogs I've seen lately where leftist propaganda is being flaunted, and I am very disappointed. I really don't want to have a group of lies shoved down my throat every time I visit a knitting blog, or a location blog, or a recipe blog. I feel, as many Conservatives do, that it is enough to have the facts speak for themselves and let common sense prevail. That rumors and throat-cutting politics are the dirtiest techniques to get your candidate into power. And I hate it being stuffed in my face constantly....

However, I am not one to let "the left" have their say forever while I stay mum. So there you have it. My political opinion.

And isn't that kinda conservative?

Okay, I've had my say. Now, on to some serious yarn-y goodness :D

Nicely said. I simply avoid those specific blog entries that scream "in your face." I'm here in blogland for a reason...to make my world bigger, sharing common interests, not smaller like the fishbowl most communities can and do become, especially during an election year. AUGH!

Well said. I totally agree. And what is that in the picture?

Here Here!! Well said, I completely agree with your view point. That is one big reason why I hate election years. It is crammed down your throat everywhere you go.

I am really liking the ...bubbling brook?

Oddly, I wrote a post in the same vein as yours just a week or two ago. You can read it here:

I still haven't totally worked it out!

Thank you! I've been struggling with this for weeks. I've wanted to say the same thing on my blog and have held back so as not to be "just like them." I guess that's part of what makes us conservatives.

I'm more disappointed in the lining up behind party lines because to me it indicates an unwillingless to actually THINK about the election and I despise the demonizing of the other side. Both sides have merit. Both sides have serious concerns. If a politician ever lived up to his promises, the world would stop turning.
