{November 8, 2016}   Not Voting

For those that have been following my blog know what has been going on with my Little Guy at school with his teacher. For those just joining or who missed it you can read about it here Third Party or here Baby Killer. As I said before this is not about who you vote/voted for or how you feel about either one. I could careless as I it is everyone’s right to vote and vote for who they want to vote for or not to vote and to feel however they would like about everyone involved. It is none of my business or anyone else here or anywhere else. Just as this teacher should not be pushing this on these kids who are not even old enough to truly understand it all and give a biased view on it all to top it off.

This is is what he told me when he got in the truck today. He was proud of himself too and I am glade he was and stood up for himself and did not let the teacher push him into something just because he was a “child” He has his opinions and thoughts and he stood by them. I hope he continues to be as outspoken and stand up for himself as he gets older. It took me a long time to stand up for myself, what I wanted or believed and how I felt about things. Life would have been much easier if I had started out young and stayed with it. I was the peace keeper and go with the flow until a lot later in life.

I am really over this teacher trying to pushing this “voting” thing with my kid. He said they voted today and he did not vote, she told him he HAD to vote for one or the other. He told her he didn’t want to vote for either one and she kept pushing him that he had to. Ofcourse he wasn’t going to vote for Hillary when she told him she was a baby killer and he told her he didn’t like Trump he picked on people. She told him she didn’t believe him. He told her he wasn’t voting for either one. He stood his ground and didn’t. These are kindergarten kids, its great you want to teach about the election but to only push one person and bash the other and not tell them all their options is not right. This is not teaching them anything or preparing them for when they are old enough to vote. If you are truly preparing them to vote and what the election is all about you do not only tell them about all the bad from one party nothing good, nothing good or bad about the other party or that there are two other people to vote for. You do not tell them they have to vote they can’t not vote. It is their right to not vote just as it is everyone else right to vote. He has heard what you had to say and seen what he did on tv and decided on his own who to vote for not prompting from anyone. If they do not like that then to bad. It isn’t like it really counts and they are little kids they should not have to be worried about voting and what each party stands for anyway. He has plenty of time to worry about all that in 12 years when he is old enough to vote and really understand and can research and decide for himself.

About the election this year? I haven’t said anything for or against anyone or about it all this time why everyone has been going back and forth over who should or shouldn’t win. I have had to much going on to think about it or research it and try to figure out who I thought was best for the job. Nor did I really feel that my vote would really make a difference in who did or didn’t win. There for all the time and energy I put into researching deciding and then voting if I had done it would be a waste. So gasp hang me throw stones at me or whatever you feel the need to do. But no I did not vote nor did I care to this year.

I have said that Obama would win this year from the time everyone started talking about the election and who was going to win. Just like with Bush everyone complained about him for years and they said so many people weren’t going to vote for him and everyone was so sure that he wasn’t going to serve another 4 years. Then all of a sudden things happened and all of a sudden they needed to recount votes and this and that was wrong when it looked as if he had lost or was losing. Recount a few votes here and there and all of a sudden he has went from losing to wining. Pretty much anymore if you can win and get in for the first 4 years your pretty much guaranteed the next 4 no matter what you do or don’t do no matter how much you screw up or don’t screw up. They already said an hour or two ago that there are already votes in Ohio that can’t be counted for 10 days because of something that is wrong.

I am sure that my view of things are way different than everyone else’s but it’s just that it is my view and how I feel. I most of  the time keep my thought on this kind of thing to myself but I just find it funny how surprised and upset people are that Obama has won. I also find it funny how excited and happy the others are that he won. It’s like hello did you really think that anyone else was going to get it besides him?

How can they even say that anyone has won when some of the polls haven’t even closed yet. I remember 4 years ago when they were saying he had won them showing people in line waiting to vote. Proves my point again that does your vote really count?
