Guess who came knocking on my door? I thought it was one of those religious folks come a-calling, so I sigh and opened the door. "Another darn politician sell or religious stuff!" I think the man paused and introduced himself......."Hello, this is State Representive Bob Flider" he reached out his hand and I accepted his handshake. He asked me how I am doing and is my husband OK with his job? I thought oh my god! A REAL politician???? I never had anyone "famous" from Washington DC. Oh Lordy I got tons of things to say! Sure I told him hubby is fine but his employer sucks...(as it is mentioned somewhere in here "Can the Employer Do this?" thread). Told him in details and he made notes. He was just floored how well I spoke after I told him that I was hearing impared. Also told him about my experience at the Macon Co for health care and Medicaid, food stamps and the whole deal of it. Some people really need it and others DO NOT! Stop the abuse. Do very thorough background checks, follow ups, etc. AND Medicare and Social Security. EDUCATION was the biggy! AND get this one, I told him that I do not like to HEAR about mudslinging about other politicians, I want to HEAR about what you can do for us if we vote for you and are you going to keep your promises? I informed him that I am burned out about all this crap, the ecomony, WE NEED JOBS to move the money...people work, earn their money, they will spend and the ecomony will MOVE. Bob (as he liked to be called instead of Mr Flider) said he did tried to the "honest ads" that but it didn't work. I told him I am disappointed that you think "mudslinging" would attact voters, it just in poor taste and it does not tell me what you are capable as a politicians and that is WHY I do not trust them. He understands that perfectly and hope I will vote after he told me about what he would do to fight FOR us even the odds are stacked against him because whatever he lobbied, it gets turned down by the majority. I do not understand the ins and out of politicians but it is true when you keep fighting for what you believe in but once you are in office, you would turn on us. He again understands why and replied that many of answers from the people in the neighborhood, all said the same thing. Now I must admit, I didn't know if I wanted to vote but after seeing his track records in what he was FOR and AGAINST, it looks good. I do not know if I want to vote. Hubby said he WISHED he was there to lay it on him thick with HARD questions. Bob has to do some HARD selling to me to vote for him. Did you ever had someone important and did you end up voting for that person?
