WHY DO WE LIKE POLITICIANS WHO PROMISE CHANGE?
And every day, I receive candidate-bashing cartoons, stupid, political one-liners about lipstick wearing pigs, hockey mom's, etc. C'mon folks!! Give it a rest!! Instead of bashing the crap out of one candidate while touting another & generally forcing your unsolicited opinions on others, think about this.....................

They ALL promise change. How about if they run on a promise of restoration rather than change. A restoration that would take us back in time to a place where things ran better, smoother and life was more enjoyable.

Change? That, in truth, is what they have been giving us all along.
We USED to have a strong dollar ... Politicians changed that.
Life USED to be sacred ... Politicians changed that.
Marriage USED to be sacred ... Politicians are changing that.
We USED to be respected around the world ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to have a manufacturing economy ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to have lower tax structures ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to enjoy more freedoms ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to be a large exporter of goods ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to be an OPENLY Christian nation ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to teach patriotism in schools ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to educate children in schools ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to enjoy freedom of speech ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to ENFORCE LEGAL citizenship ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to have affordable food & gas ... Politicians changed that, too
. ... and one could go on and on with this list.

What hasn't been changed, politicians are promising to change that as well if you will elect them. When, oh WHEN, is America going to sit back with open eyes and look at what we once were and where we have come and say, enough is enough?

The trouble is, America's youthful voters today don't know of the great America that existed forty and fifty years ago. They see the world as if it has always existed as it is now.

When will we wake up? Tomorrow may be too late. When will America realize ... Politicians are what is wrong with America?

CHANGE....NO!!!! RESTORE.....YES!!!!

After America is long gone, future "Americans" will be sifting through the dirt. Here they will find little hints as to what was wrong with this country.

Sure hope they dont make the same mistake.

I would be inclined to agree with Ms. Curtis more if she changed the word POLITICIANS to REPUBLICANs and the BUSH DEMOCRATS.

She's also a bit too general in that list. She should be more specific as to her definitions, such as saying that marriage used to be sacred...I can only assume she's anti-gay rights.

She says that Life used to be Sacred...I can only assume that she means she's anti-abortion and does not support a woman's right to choose whether or not to give birth.

Ms. Curtis says that we used to be an openly Christian nation...I can only assume that she doesn't believe in freedom of religion or separation of church and state.

She says that we used to teach patriotism in schools. I can only assume that she thinks that we should tell children in schools that they should be willing to fight without question or protest in illegal wars which are begun when the president lies to the people. Ms. Curtis obviously doesn't believe that the Constitution should be upheld by everyone, including the President and all the other politicians.

Sorry, but Ms. Curtis needs to edit her list and be a little less hypocritical and much more specific. She should understand that she can't have it both ways.
