    I feel like this is a life or death situation for us seniors. If the Supreme Court decides this election like they did before, or if the uninformed vote against their own best interest, and not enough people turn out to vote for the Congressmen who will put their constituents before big money, our goose is cooked. This is not politics, this is survival! I can talk about my greatest fears here, because I understand that it's my blog.
    Good luck in all you do.

    Coming here was the only place on the internet....or in life, these days, where politics were left out.

    This is what you put on my Spark Page: "Guess it really is scary to me that you didn't hear anything! This is a real crisis that is set to end my medicare and social security! If you don't care about your self and your old folks, nor your children...who do you care for? Your vote will decide whether this country goes to the corporatists or to you and I. Ponder!"

    My blogs and my page pretty much tell who I am. What they don't say is that I am an Independent and my thinking is pretty well unbiased by party politics. I do ponder, I do read a lot, and I think for myself. I respect what SP is trying do do on this site and try to be a positive influence on other member's lives.

    What I don't do is let a political party tell me what to think. What I don't do is go on a team members Spark Page and put them down. I respect other people's opinions and while I may not agree with them I treat them with respect and civility.

    Finally, I feel that blogs of this nature should be where all discussion of the topic should remain as this is the only place SP allows political discussion. As you said to me, Ponder!
