A Role Play ...

I know this much ...

I'm trying to put myself in the place of those 6 in 10 Americans who don't know what party controls the United States House, or Senate.  But here's what I do know. 

  • I know lots of people who are unemployed, and cannot find a full time job.
  • If I'm married, I'm worried about the future (If I'm not married, but employed, all I worry about is tonight's date, or beating Ohio State). 
  • I know that a hell of a lot of illegal aliens are flooding the into the country from Mexico, or thereabouts, and I know that Obama and Democrats are letting more in.
  • Isn't that against the law?
  • I know there are reports of hundreds of Americans dying from an Ebola epidemic, which is worse than the Black Plague, and is sweeping the nation (I said I was disengaged);  I know those illegal immigrants are responsible.  I worry about my family.
  • I know I don't have health insurance, even though Obama promised it; or if I did have it, it's gone; or  if I do have health insurance, I'm paying through the nose for it, and I can't afford it. 
  • I know that Obama has been mucking things up around Iraq. He took our troops out, and now we had to go back.  But we're losing this time.
  • I know that Muslims over there are beheading children and journalists.
  • I don't like Muslims at all, and while I won't say it aloud, I fear them, and I wish all of them were expelled from the United States. 
  • I know that Obama is a Muslim, and a Democrat.
  • I know that there's an election in November. 
  • I should vote. 
  • If I do, it won't be for any Democrat.
That's not what I think.  I watch MSNBC and the Daily Show. I know better.
