The top ten reasons Ostrich People
give for not getting involved.10.
I'm too busy9.
I can't make a difference8.
I hate politics7.
All politicians are the same6.
Politics are boring5.
I don't know enough4.
I don't want to offend anybody3.
It's a waste of time, time I don't have time to waste (see #10)2.
I don't like all that fussing and arguing1.
I don't care
The sad fact is while they make all kinds of excuses the main reason most people don't get involved is they just don't care. Oh they vote, but they have no real understanding of the issues or the candidates. They catch a commercial or two during their nightly tv shows, or weekend ballgames. Then they go to the polls and vote based in those few ads. The truth or validity of those ad's is irrelavent to them. Thus here we are.
The religious right has caught onto the lack of interest by Mr & Mrs I'm-too-busy-and-don't-care, and they're taking full advantage of it.
Bush & Co know this. That's why they pick a spot in the road and stand there.
So, what can those of us who DO
care, do about it? Frankly I don't know. Apathy is a hard foe to battle.
Unbelieveable Rove: White House 'strongly' behind DeLay "WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The White House stands "strongly" behind Tom DeLay amid ethical questions over the House majority leader's fund- raising and overseas trips, deputy chief of staff Karl Rove said Monday." Tom DeLay's House of Scandle
This is the man the White House consider's close ally
and is standing strongly behind? This is the party that people of higher values voted for?
Every decent, self-respecting Republican in this country should be on the phone, flooding the White House with irate demands that the President and his White House cronies stand up for decency and truth. Like the God fearing, ethical, moral superior Christians they (W & Co.) claim to be. *******
Forgive me, I had a blond moment there. I forgot, there are so few good decent Republicans that actually give a damn, they couldn't tie up the phone lines to MY house much less the White House.
