Sorry, this is going to be a small vent. I'm really irritated right now. I have my status set on Facebook to show that I'm voting for John McCain. I haven't been shy about this at all; you all know I'm his supporter. And if you really knew me, this should be no surprise to you. I'm old-fashioned and conservative.
But a friend, who used to watch my son even, wrote on my wall "John McCain? What's your problem? He's bad for anyone who cares about education." I don't mind if people have a problem with who I vote for, but there is no reason to be rude about it. I have other issues on my mind that are of more importance than education (NOT saying this is not important; I have strong feelings about education, but I honestly don't think either candidate is going to drastically change the educational system for better or worse). I just wish people would be more considerate to one another considering this election. Issues really important to me, may not be as important to Joe the Plumber or Bob the Builder (haha), and vice versa.
I'm just a little hurt now. I do care about education; I always have, I always will. But I agree with John McCain on many issues and disagree with Barack Obama on many more issues.
So be considerate. I try to be. My only vendetta is against people who don't know WHY they are voting for either candidate.
