Acting and Politics
Friday night my husband and I went to see Tomb Raider. It was okay. Angelina Jolie is one of my favorite stars to look at though, next to Johnny Depp who did a superb job in Pirates.
I hear that Carlton Harvey, Libertarian candidate for (Charlotte) mayor did a great job stirring up the crowd at the recent NAACP Black Caucus candidates' fourum. I wish it had been open to the public, I would have liked to see it. I am sure I will get a chance to see him in action later on.
The most important thing for me when I vote is the individual candidate. What they think, how they act, what their motivations are. This is more important than political party affiliation, because there are always going to be bad apples in every bunch. Although I think there are way too many bad apples in office out there, and not enough individuals who are really in it for the right reasons.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Republican? Could have fooled me. I would have mistaken him for a Democrat since he has no problem with more spending. But oh wait. Republicans spend just as much or more when it suits them. All the partisan bickering about spending is really pointless, the goal is always over how much to spend in the majority of cases. Unless you're talking about Congressman Ron Paul, who truly wants to shrink government.
