My Civic Duty

Go Me!  I watched the first Presidential Debate last night.  Of course, after arriving home from Awana at 8:30 last night and spending an hour getting the kids (and their friends that spent the night) to bed, it wasn't super high on my list, but I think it's important to be engaged and knowledgeable.  Don't get me wrong - I don't come at it objectively.  I'm not an independent voter at this point in time.  After Romney revealed his true feelings for 47% of Americans, there is no way my conscience could ever allow me to vote for him (well, that, and reverting back to the old system of exclusively employer-based healthcare, big fat NO THANKS).  But I still think it's important to hear what everyone has to say.  Unfortunately these debates, on both sides, are more about performance and stagecraft than substance and policy.  But a girl can hope she'll get a nugget of truth here or there.  I've got a date with Paul Ryan and Joe Biden next week!
