5. I couldn't watch the ABC discussion
It just turned my stomach. They weren't having a discussion about religion or spirituality; they were talking about the role religion should play in politics.

No voice was saying that politics should be about policies not morality.

Someone mentioned when John Kerry said that he personally was against abortions but believed in laws and personal freedom. The speaker that mentioned this ridiculed him, and said that it was the moment the electorate turned against him.

I shut off the TV.

I wanted to shout "We aren't electing the Pope. We are electing a president."

Then I tried to find something else to do.

The whole grounds of the debate, the general outline of the issues, was flawed in my opinion. Liberals should not be sending our great minister to debate their great minister. Is this really the way we want our country to be run?
