As you all know, it's election season again. Whether you live in The US or abroad, like myself, it's still in your face. I am not a fan of election season, the empty promises, the trash talking, the fake facts, etc., etc. I'm also not a fan of the tension it creates between people. But the tension comes from passion, so I should be happy people care so much about what happens to their country. In my mind, unless you vote you don't have a right to complain. Therefore, I have the right to complain because my husband and I mailed off our absentee ballots this week! I don't vote for the smaller elections, I find it unfair because I don't follow all of the issues pertaining to Florida. But I do vote in the general elections, for the larger issues. As much as I would love to stand on my soap box and tell you what issues I find important and which direction I voted, I shall refrain. As I've said before, this blog is supposed to be on the light hearted side and nothing can stir emotion quicker than talking politics (and religion). Oh how I wish I could give you my opinion, on both subjects! Luckily I can express my opinion in my life outside of this blog. All I can say is my life as an expat wasn't easy when I first moved here and it wasn't always the transition of moving to another country, it was dealing with the backlash of how people other than Americans felt about American politics. I filed my vote and now all I can do is wait. Wait and see what the future holds in store for all of us, Americans, expats, and people across the globe.
