Democrats vs Republicans part II

This is what I call, “people need to stop looking at the past, but rather look how the present will affect the future.” Put aside politics for a moment and take a look at what you see and hear. You see two candidates who really want this presidency and for one, its a closer reality than his opponent. I read how McCain doesn’t even look at Obama during debates, a sign that he’s arrogant and he has no respect whats so ever for his opponent. Also, he’s already lied to this country when he was asked to pay a visit to the Letterman show…he said he had to do some campaign shit…So why the hell was he next door getting “a better interview” from a “better reporter” or whatever the hell it was. Goes to show that McCain ain’t for the people…hes not one of us…hes too good to be one of us. What kind of candidate does that? Also, his VP doesn’t seem to be doing so hot. Yeah shes a hot mama, but a misguided candidate whos in this election for all the wrong reasons. Change? I don’t think so.

She doesn’t even believe in abortion if and when a woman gets raped. Now to me, thats just some bullshit. Why you gonna carry your rapists baby? Absurd…some republicans are absurd. Recently, I just watched a video on some of the McCain/Palin supporters on youtube…Yeah its propaganda and one sided, but really though…people can be MAJOR idiots when they have no idea what the hell they’re supporting. Its like agreeing to something someone said without knowing the consequences of your agreement. Much like this race for the white house. Folks don’t want to do their research, they just listen or watch what they see in the media.

Take for example, my mom. Shes only voting for McCain because theres a woman running beside him. I told her that if she votes for him, my education will be in more danger for the future. She didn’t care…”der is a woman. Bahala ka jan!” As much as I wanted to tell her that her choice for this years election to vote for McCain is going to be the biggest mistake she’ll ever make…she wont listen. Shes stubborn. She also doesn’t like African Americans -_-. 

Fact of the matter is, Democrats for this election have been nothing but classy and have been inviting folks to really look into their campaign, rather than propagate why people should vote democrat this time around…I think its an obvious choice regardless. Republicans are getting worried that they wont have power in the senate, house, and yes…the country – leaving them with only one choice – to make Obama look like an idiot and spend countless of money on advertisement against Obama. To be honest, some Republicans think like the Old Red Necks you hear and watch in movies and TV shows…-_- 

Their policies, there stance on certain topics, whatever it may be…I think we can see the favorable victor in this years election. I pray…this time America wont be stupid enough to pick a candidate who will most definitely set back America even more. 

Vote for your future. Vote for the next generation. Vote for your family. Vote for change. Vote for something real.


Plain and simple.

Exceptionally changed

Isn’t it funny how we make exceptions for the ones who we like, love, want? You’re whole way of living/life is altered to just accommodate for that one person. Why do we do it? Because we like, love, want that persons attention. We need it and wouldn’t mind making any alters in our schedule for them. Even the basis of our morals and values are compromised at times. However, there are folk who really want us. Who want our attention. Who actually want to get to know us, love us, like us…but we don’t give them the time of day nor care for them as much as we care for that one person we’re trying to pursue. 

Even if they say the meanest things, do the rudest things, act a fool towards you – that doesn’t matter. But like I said, if it was any other person, we probably would drop them with a quickness. 

The fact of the matter is these exceptions or accommodations we make hurt us in the end. We never learn from the mistakes that we end up making because of this midset…sometimes…its so built into us…that we can’t change back.

I don’t know whats going on in my head right now. I don’t feel, again, motivated to do anything. I want to rot and just lay in bed to not worry or do anything. I just want to sit in my room…and just stay there…no interactions with the world…nothing. I’m fearing myself more and more each day…real talk…I’m fearing that I’m getting too soft…opening up too quick…being the Joaquin I use to be. I don’t understand it…I don’t get why I’m letting these folks just take over the way I feel. TAKE MY OWN ADVICE AND LISTEN TO WHAT I TELL OTHERS JOAQUIN: DON’T EVER LET A MAN GET THE BEST OF YOU! But tell me why tears build up in my eyes and emotions just build inside waiting to be poured out.

I’m a fucking gem! I’m a fucking dime! I’m a fuckingggg treasure to find. YET, no ones uncovering this treasure…no one cares to – and if they do…they’re not the one I’m looking for to uncover me. REAL talk….I sound picky…but I rather be picky and know what I want, instead of continuously investing my time on folks who in the end turn out to be a waste of my time. Again…Exceptions…

I’m a fucking mess right now. I feel like I did a few months ago…where my days were bummed…Where I couldn’t lift my head up high…SIGH…I’ve been getting back into that emo stage. Is it because I really do know what I want this time and when I find it and don’t get it…it hurts? Is that the reasoning? WHAT THE HELL!? 

Pieces me of me! PIECES OF ME!
