In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. She’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at An Island Life’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
For this week’s aloha friday, I thouht I’d mix it up a bit and talk about something entirely new for this blog – I want to get political with you lovely bloggers for just a moment. I won’t go into a long diatribe here (though I might in another post, not sure yet) but basically I’m curious as to your political leanings.
Which way do you plan to vote this November?
McCain? Obama? Other?
And if you’d like to, please feel free to explain your thoughts and reasons and concerns.
Sometimes I think it’s easy to tell which direction a person will lean politically, but as I’ve grown, I’ve learned this is less and less true. Personally, I’m one of those eternally middle of the road people, so even when I feel strongly in one way one particular thing, I might lean strongly the other way on another. The advantage of this – is that I’m usually pretty good at seeing both sides of things. Usually.
Still when it comes to presidential elections, I’ve until recently had a pretty easy time picking a candidate to support. This is one of the first elections I’ve felt remarkably uncertain in, and I’d love to hear some of your thoughts. I think I know which way I’m voting but I do like to be well informed, and would always love more information before making such a big decision (not that I’m entirely certain my decision will mean much to the rest of the world).
How do you go about getting your political news and information? What issues really drive you to vote one way or another? Which way did you vote in the last election and how did the result make you feel? Has it influenced how you will vote in this election? And if you don’t have time to get into all that, a simple name will do. 🙂
