I Am Not Ready

Today is Super Tuesday. The day that people get to go and vote for who they want to be president, months before they get to go vote for who they want to be president. Kind of like warm ups.

I believe in voting. I think that everyone has a voice, and while yes, there are LOTS of voices out there, everyone should do their part and show that they are making an informed choice on who they believe can sit in Washington for the next four years and get done what needs to get done. And fix the things that need to be fixed, or at least acknowledge they need to be.

There is a lot of information out there about the candidates in the primaries: a lot of stuff that we normally wouldn't even want to know about our next-door neighbors cause don't we have enough in our lives to keep us busy besides knowing what the next person said about so-n-so/thought about people from 30 years ago/did in high school? But, the media keeps us very well informed.

It's just information overload. Because of that, I don't know who I want to vote for. So, today I don't. I'm not ready to make a non-informed decision based on too much information.

November will be here soon enough. Or not soon enough.
