As a conservative female nearing her 40's, low to middle income, no kids, in school, intelligent and trying to survive, I have found there to be a dirth of voices that I feel adequately represent me. I guess I am supposed to connect somehow to either Sarah Palin, Meghan McCain or possibly Carrie PreJean.
My frustration level at not being able to express myself in what I am looking for in a leader is over the top. I know what I don't want. Wait, no I don't even think I know what I don't want. But I'll try. Male, female that doesn't matter. They can't be a "Birther" or a "Truther". They must believe in the constitution and upholding it. I would like someone who leans a little more towards the Libertarian Party in economics, but a more conservative in social areas. I am pretty conservative in my beliefs, but I hesitate to force my opinions on others when it comes to personal liberties. Maybe I am too black and white. If I don't hear key words that apply to me, I feel like I am not represented or no one is speaking my "language".
I don't care about Meghan's breasts and it offends me that sex is a part of her spiel. I don't know how she is taken seriously and I feel that she reflects poorly on the Conservative Party. And only because she projects herself as a voice for them. If she just had some ideas and talked about them, fine, great. But someone might mistake her for someone I believe in! Yuck! I am not even going to talk about PreJean. She is just another Joe the Plumber. Time and place people, time and place.
I await to see more from Palin and I hope she pans out into something worthy of the following she is creating. There are some good people rooting for her and I would like to see them rewarded by a person who can come through and do what they say they will. But I don't know if she is the one I'd choose either.
I like Newt. But I don't think he is viable. Oh, Charles Krauthammer would be good. I like the Judge. I see I have a Fox Panelist Party for 2012.
Oh good night!
