Mitt Romney, My Job and My Customers.

BEWARE!  Political Post ahead...
Just want to share this with you...
I don't get involved in politics normally, but I'm tired of being tired.  I'm tired of working so hard for nothing.  I'm tired of trying to move ahead and feeling stuck.  I'm tired of paying other people's bills with my hard earned money.  I'm tired of seeing my customers close up shop because they can't make ends meet.  I'm tired of having to tell them that it will get better soon, while not really believing it. 
I don't know about you, but I love my customers like they are family.  All of them. My job is to help them be successful. It breaks my heart and I feel like I've failed them when they are forced to close their doors.  I'm sick of it!  I'm sick of watching their hard earned money disappear.  I feel like I've been telling them that things are going to look up for years now...3 and a half years to be exact.  I'm tired of explaining that shipping costs have increased because fuel cost has increased and that causes product pricing to increase.  That doesn't help anyone.  It's a vicious and nasty cycle.  And I'm tired of it. 
I would hope that you are tired of it too.
I'm not saying that we have to elect Mitt Romney.  I'm saying that America needs a change.
I believe that he is the man that can do it.
Again, I saw what he did for the SLC Winter Olympics.
I believe he can do that for America.
I believe that he can make us proud to be Americans again.
I believe that he can help me help my customers so that they can help their customers.
I want my customers back.
I want my America back.
Do you?

Bigotry is soooo last century...

Dear normal followers, I apologize for this not light hearted fun post.  I have to get this off of my chest because it's bugging the crud out of me.  So, forgive me for this one little political moment.

In America, we pride ourselves on being "the land of the free".  We pride ourselves on not discriminating against anyone.  When I say anyone, I mean anyone.  We don't care if you're white, black, purple, red, pink, green, brown, yellow or a bright tattooed rainbow of colors.  Good for you.  Come on in.  If you are Donald Trump rich, or homeless kid poor, come on over.  We accept you if you are from any country in the world.  We accept you so much that we don't even make you have a green card to come in, unless you live in Arizona.  In fact, we'll pay your bills!

Americans don't discriminate because it's not fair.  We even have it in our country's constitution.  We believe that "All men are created equal".  All men. And even women.

Unless, of course, you're a Mormon.  Or a Mormon woman.
Why do we claim that bigotry is a thing of the past?  It's not.  This whole presidential race has brought to light what bigots we actually are.

We can't possibly elect a Mormon to be the President of the good ole' US of A.  That would be a tragedy!  And...how dare his wife say that she understands the economy?  She's a stay at home mom for pete's sake!  She has no clue.

I take pride in being a Mormon woman.  I wish I was a stay at home mom.  I take pride in being gentle, good and kind.  I take pride in being a good, God Fearing, Christian woman.

Do you?

Just wondering...

Also, who will you vote for this November?
This man who believes in families, military and being a good person?

Or, this man who has seemed to destroy this country in one brush of his "yes, we can" hand?

I'll tell you right now.  I'm not voting for Mitt because he's a Mormon.  I'm voting for Mitt because he's a good man.  I'm voting for Mitt because I lived in Utah during the Olympics and I've seen what he can do.  I'm voting for Mitt because this country needs a champion, not some man who goes to Disneyworld for press conferences.  I'm voting for Mitt because his beliefs are the closest to my own.  I'm voting for Mitt because I'm an American and I have that privelege.
Make your own choice, but don't do it based on religion.  That doesn't make you informed, it makes you a bigot.
Chew on that for a while....

I Stand All Amazed....

Tomorrow.  Easter Sunday.  For most of the world, chocolate bunnies, jellybeans.
For me, this.
Take a few moments and listen to this wonderful song.
Take five minutes to know how much our Savior loves you.
Then, go find out more at www.lds.org.  Please.
I believe this with my whole heart.
For those who think I am not a Christian, please know that our religion focuses on the Savior and His love and His work.
He loves you.  He wants you to come live with Him again.  He wanted this so much that He died for us. 
Please, open your heart and your mind and really listen to the words and know, like I do that He loves you.
Happy Easter.
