One of the big topics in Romney's platform is his promise to restore us to the America we used to be.... the America we want to be. But I am afraid that whether I am a Democrat or a Republican, I have to call BULLSHIT on that one.
The only people who can restore that kind of lifestyle and pace and philosophy to the individual person's life is the individual person. We have to make the decisions for ourselves to STOP and sit on the porch on a regular basis..... to wave (and even SPEAK) to our neighbors..... to know their names and their stories.......to turn down a dirt road that might cause us a little extra time to get to our destination, but that might reveal something amazing in nature to us..... These are not things that a president can give us. These are things that we have to CHOOSE TO TAKE for ourselves and our families.
So Romney needs another angle.
As a grandmother-to-be in the next five weeks, I am choosing this old lifestyle for me and my family and I don't have to wait for November 6, 2012 to get it.
