If we move on Nov. 1, it will most likely mess up our chance to vote, won't it? I dont' know. Seems like it would. I need to figure out who to call to get an answer to that question.
But that's OK. Lately I've been very flummoxed.
I"m against the war. No way no how no McCain/Palin (I keep typing Pain and have to go back and add the "L").
But then I'm totally creeped out by the following idea:
As in Oregon currently, where assisted suicide is legal...and where folks on the state medical plan don't get medical treatment paid for if they are given only 6 months to live, but only "comfort care" as the state run suicide plan is called...so soon in Washington State.
Once it's in Washington and Oregon, how about someone decides to make a push for this lovely culture of death idea to be nationalized?
...All at the same time that National Health Care goes into effect.
And suddenly we are living in the land of the free and the home of the "it's your patriotic duty to bump yourself off and if you don't we'll put all kinds of pressure on you anyways"... (from what I understand, this is happening in the Netherlands, and as they do, so we do a few years behind).
Survival of the fittest, and those on the margins of life are not worthy?
I don't know...I'm just imagining the worst.
And it gives me chills.
So even though this very pro-life and cautiously democrat (there, I said it, now you all know my political affiliations...I just don't fit) would like to see an end to war and more support for those in poverty, the idea that this might be a possibility in the very near future just creeps me out.
So, perhaps I'm glad that I may not be able to vote this year, due to the vagaries and upheavals of my life. But I surely can pray. God have mercy.
