I watched some of the U.S. election coverage on the news this past weekend, and I really can’t get jazzed about any of it. To be honest, I simply don’t care. I’ve contended that at the end of the day, whoever is sitting in the Oval Office just doesn’t have that big of an impact on my immediate life. I wake up, go to work, play with my sons, and enjoy my life with my wife, and I’ll continue to do that no matter who is sitting in the chair.
I realize that there are a myriad of issues involved in this election period, but how many of them really effect my family? Not many, and those that do we handle and address as a family. I don’t need the President to solve my problems; I’d just as soon do that myself.
I realize that is sounds sacrilegious. It should matter to me who holds the most powerful office in the world, but I have just as much interest in the NFL playoffs. I’d like to see the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl, but if they don’t, I’ll get by. It’s just another competition where we have our favorites that we’d like to see come out on top, but if they don’t we’ll get on with our lives much like we did yesterday and the day before that.
