Just A thought on Election day
Vote For Whom ever you wish to vote for
Don't allow anyone to influence your decision............"D'Dartagnan"

 I Don’t Want To Be (Revised)

I Don't Want to Be
The President
I want to be
The Puppeteer.
I don’t want to be
A Congressman
I want to be
That “Lobbyist”
Slinking through
The Halls Of Congress
Beckoning Reps Near
Luring them
So they may hear
I don’ want to be
A Senator
I want to be
One of those CEO’s
Sitting in an ivory tower
The Senators genuflects to
As The other Senators cheers.

By: William Bonilla
The 800 Pound Gorilla
In The Room
No one listens to

it's never principles that govern but pounds, monetarily speaking... and if you have 800 of 'em, seems to me like some monkey should be genuflecting to YOU! Happy election day! :)) xx

The most important election we shall ever vote in. It will determine if we will be a socialistic/communistic Country or stem the tide and returen to a Republic and the Constitution. VOTE
