Diary

Changed to (R) today

I’m sorry I voted for Obama in 2008.  I do not know what I was thinking.  I’m a 28 year old white male.  I grew up in a conservative home.  I have conservative values except on a few social issues.  I am very conservative fiscally.  Why did I vote for Obama?  I don’t know.  I never identified with John McCain.  I think it may have been a generational issue.  I just didn’t get him.  His choice of Sarah Palin for VP was very interesting, but I was duped by the media interviews and felt she was incapable of handling the job.  I now know otherwise.

Today I sent in my voter registration change, and for the first time since I was 18, I am a registered Republican.  I will vote a straight Republican ticket from now on.  This “change” Obama promised is not the change I had bargained for at all.  Frankly, I don’t trust him or any of the other Democrats in Congress.  When I hear of some of the appointments he has made, it frightens me.  These are people on the fringe.  Racists, socialists, and un-American.  Obamacare scares me to death.  Is our health care system perfect?  No.  Is Obamacare the answer?  No. 

I’m hoping a really strong Republican will run in 2012 and we can get this guy out of office.  I just hope we have a country left after he’s done with us…  Just know that you have one extra (R) vote in Florida.  I hope you all don’t hate me for the horrible mistake I made in 2008.  I have much work to do to try to atone for that vote.
