  How long has it been for you?
I was driving around with one of my daughters yesterday when I spied an Obama bumper sticker on a car in front of us. No big deal, be proud of who you vote for, I guess. The last time I voted I literally went to vote for anybody that wasn't already in office, basically, I went to vote people out! Where do I get one of those bumper stickers?

I started to think...I know, scary proposition ain't it?!??! I wondered to myself, what was the last political bumper sticker I put on my car? I have tons of stickers on my truck. Most of them those oval shaped white stickers with 2 or 3 letters identifying different places. You know, like, BB for Bodega Bay, or CBBT for Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Stuff like that. But I have no political stickers on my truck. Unless retired navy or American Veteran count as political stickers...I don't think they do, but that's just me...

I've thought about putting a sticker or two on my truck. I see some that say things like, I fish and I vote, or I hunt and I vote, mean people suck, nice people swallow...oh wait, those aren't political! Those might not be appropriate...

The problem with some bumper stickers is that they make me want to run people off the road! I haven't, but the thought's been there. I see a PETA sticker on a car and I think, what an asshole! Sorry, all you PETA people, but after some of the stories I've read about PETA folks picking up dogs at Vets offices and euthanizing them and throwing them in dumpsters, I just don't like you guys. Get over it. The ones that get me the most might be the WWJD stickers. 9 out of 10 times the person driving that car never thinks to ask themselves that question before they cut you off or drive 45 in the left hand lane, or switch lanes without signalling.

...and yeah, I hate those blue stars too! You know who you are cowgirl fans!

...but honestly, I haven't put a serious political bumper sticker on a vehicle I owned since....Ronald Reagan ran for president!

I told my daughter that I really haven't been proud enough of my vote to advertise it in a long time and you know what? That's just sad!

Will there ever come a time again when we can all be proud of the folks that want to run our country? Or will we be stuck with this silly two party system that leaves nothing for a choice but the lesser of two evils?

I've got you beat...I've never, ever had a political or any other kind of bumper sticker.

I hear ya about the folks that run this country and run for office. This year is the worst in my lifetime I believe. Lots of Republicans hate McCain, lots of Democrats hate Obama. Hell, just to protest I think I'll vote for Cynthia McKinney.

Hope all is well in VA Beach, VA!
