The Awesome Diversity of USA – Take Kentucky for example!

PrawnyWhy I love my Country

The diversity of America is really quite amazing . Each state is unique and special within itself. But many of our wonderful states and their residents are struggling. Change needs to happen. In government, fewer politics (and rhetoric) and more action is needed. Right now, there are a handful of states where change may be possible with midterm elections later this year. One of those states is good ol’ bluegrass Kentucky.

There are some important things going on in our country right now, and we women are right there in the mix along with the men. Helping positive change happen isn’t about feminism or equality as much as it is about accepting differences to improve All of our well being. We (everyone) Americans need to be out there making things happen to improve our chances for a better future for ourselves and our children.

Hats off to Kentucky’s Secretary of State, Alison Lundergan Grimes. Not because she’s a Democrat, (I’m a political agnostic, LOL actually what I mean is I am an American first and foremost – which means that sometimes it isn’t about a political party and it’s agenda but about us “We the people”. So wherever positive change is happening, that’s what gets my vote. Whether it be by a Liberal or a Conservative) – and I think most Americans feel the same way.

What’s important to me is having a prosperous country for as many of us as possible. For the hard working: a decent wage. For the families: a home and community to be proud of. For the children: a decent education (that doesn’t cost a fortune) for their future. And a safe place to be – for the elderly and all of us. And it looks like Alison, over there (I’m in Washington) in Kentucky is concerned about those things – and not the money behind many of the current decisions made by our politicians.

It sounds like she’s speaking out and wanting to make a difference in her home state. She’s qualified and has something positive to bring to the mix. I’m rooting for all those just like her, who are standing up and being heard because they believe it’s time to take action, because they care … for their home state and the people (like you and I) of the United States of America. So three cheers and this song is for you Allison!

Keep up the good work! As one American to another, I’m behind you all the way!

A Caring citizen of the U.S.A,

  1. Diversity rocks!
    I wish people would just stop hating & open their eyes & hearts to the world.
    So much greed over power & money – it’s sad.
    xo 🙂 🙂 xo

    • I agree RoSy! Too much greed over power and money, more than sad, it’s stupid my friend. Just imagine all the good we might accomplish if that same energy was used to help others for the betterment of all! Sigh, I’ll keep hoping. Have an excellent week ahead dear neighbor of mine! And take care of you (NO MIGRAINES) 🙂 xo

    • Hi Mish, the good ol’ state of Massachusetts is an excellent state to live in. I spent some time there, been awhile though. Fall River and Boston, mostly. I love the beauty of your state! 🙂

  2. When my son asked me why I vote after our recent bout of elections for MEP (Member of European Parliament) I said that I vote so that I can attempt to make a difference, and that I can have a right to complain. He then asked me who I vote for, so I told him whichever says the lies that are more believable. Or that’s the case of this country anyway.

    It is good that you have someone over there who seems to be for the Americans and not the $$$ she can fit into her pocket.

    • I totally agree with you Alastair. The lies are rampant over here with so many of the politicians and a lot of the average people who usually don’t have a lot to say are getting fed up with it. I guess it means time for more political change (hopefully it will be a good thing)! xo

      • It was a complete upheaval over here. With the three main parties beating each other round the heads with pugil sticks, it enabled a lesser party to usurp a load of them and ousted a load of seats. The main parties lost about 50 seats to this party, which is bordering on racist.

Thank you for your thoughts!
