Election Day 2010


Well, I voted today at my local library just a couple of blocks from my home. That is the nice thing about old neighborhoods, you can just walk up to the corner and just about everything you need is right there. Those of you who read my blog know that I am an advocate for a level playing field. I have nothing against corporations wanting to grow their earnings, but I think they should play by the rules. I also think that, while they can try to change the rules to give themselves an edge, it is our responsibility as individuals to try and maintain the level playing field. Voting is the one thing we as individuals have to counter the lobbying of large corporations that want the rules bent in their favor. While I don't like it when corporations place corporate welfare before the general welfare of all the people, I know that it goes on and I accept it. But, voting is our right to try and change that which we feel needs to be changed. We all have our own ideas what those changes should be. My idea of change is to move towards a more level playing field where individuals are not sacrificed at the altar of corporate greed. I hope you all will take your responsibility to vote seriously and VOTE DEMOCRAT!!!

Stay tuned.

I honestly think the choice between Democrat and Republican is more like the choice between Wolf and wolf in Sheep's Clothing.

Either way you get bit.

An article I just read stated that the majority of corporations and wealthy individuals pay less than a 10% tax rate.

Talk about unlevel playing fields

I agree with you Lou, and I think this feeling has given rise in part to the Tea Party. People are tired of business as usual. Unfortunately, change comes slow and whether you are a D or an R, change does not happen over night.

As for the Level Playing Field Winslow, I know that it is a constant uphill struggle to try and level the playing field. When you own the playing field you can raise the pitcher's mound as high as you like, and when you own the umpire behind the plate, you can demand a big strike zone too!

I voted. I wasn't too thrilled about it, but I just reminded myself that there are still a lot of people in the world that would love the chance to vote, that are dying for the chance to vote.
