Pat Klootwyk: White flag

November 2, 2012 

White flag

I give up.

I (and the rest of America) are tired of the campaigning and the lies! If Barack Obama is re-elected, may God bless him and the rest of us. By the same token, if Mitt Romney is elected, God bless him and the rest of us.

Are name calling, the threat of rioting and destruction (“because my welfare subsidy was cut off”) what define us?

Perhaps I’m of the older generation that doesn’t get it. What I do get is, no one actually owes you anything!

It’s actually quite simple. If you like the way this country is going, vote for the incumbent.
