An Election/Presidential Conversation between two hardworking blue collar voters
I’m on election overload right now, so I just wanted to read the book I had brought in with me. However once these guys got going, I had to pull out a pen and paper and try to capture some of what they were saying. This was the actual flow of their conversation once I began taking notes.
If this is the public conversation, imagine what’s going on in private.
Hardworking Voter: I like Sarah Palin, she can shoot a gun, fish…that’s something I can relate to. I can relate to her more than McCain.
Blue Collar Voter: Yeah Obama, that’s too close to Osama to me.
Hardworking Voter: You know I’m a Republican, but I have to admit that Bill was good when he was in there. Until all that other stuff came out after he left.
Blue Collar Voter: Like terrorism?
Hardworking Voter : Yeah, he had Osama Bin Laden in the palm of his hand and didn’t do anything with it.
Blue Collar Voter: We’ve got to get a hold on the immigrants and the Muslims in this country.
Hardworking Voter: Hey, they can have there religion. But they need to stop trying to force it on me.
Blue Collar Voter: If they don’t like this country, they need to go back over there and be in the sand somewhere.
Hardworking Voter: I say put marine snipers on the border and shoot whoever tries to come over. I bet that would stop some of it.
Blue Collar Voter : Then they would say you’re killing innocent women and children.
Hardworking Voter: What difference does it make? They just want to blow you up anyway.
