This Little Guy

We are days away from the election, and whatever results come out of this.  There is this odd factor that you have to consider.

The little guy in America....really doesn't care for words spoken over MEDICARE....either it works or it doesn't work.

The little guy in America....doesn't care about Romney paying taxes or not.....he just wishes he didn't have to pay so much in taxes himself.

The little guy in America....doesn't care about the President's energy policy....he just wants cheap fuel and natural gas.

The little guy in America....doesn't care about debates....mostly because even a fool could stand up and talk for three hours and look like John Wayne but be totally bogus.

The little guy in America....doesn't care what Hollywood stars say about their political hopes....mostly because he knows they live in some fantasy-land and usually doped up or flipped-out on something.

The little guy in America....doesn't care about the Chevy Volt....mostly because it's a Chevy and Dad was a Ford-guy, and said never to buy a Chevy, period.

The little guy in America....mostly watches his local 5AM news....leaves home at 6AM to be at work at 7AM (driving 52 miles)....and might see some real news on Sunday morning.  He doesn't care what happens in Brazil, France, Greece, or Tonga.

The little guy in America....owns a gun or two, and if some idiots are about to bust down his door....he won't waste time calling the cops or worrying about the pursuit of life and liberty by dimwits at the door.

The little guy in America....doesn't know where North Korea is on the map, and frankly doesn't care if they threaten all out attack on America.  He knows that the US can press one button and dump forty nukes on the country in nine minutes....ceasing any issue.

The little guy in America....shops at Wal-Mart, Piggly Wiggly, and the Dollar Store.  If you tried to sell a $16 plain pair of underwear to him....he'd just laugh and ask why you didn't shop and buy the five-bagger of underwear at Wal-Mart for $7.99.

The little guy in America.... reminisces about watching Barney Miller, and how Dietrich was as brilliant as Einstein, then he's brought back to 2012 and realizes the vast number of idiots around the nation.

The little guy in America....has a priority system: (1) mow grass on Saturday, (2) take Monty to the vet for deworming, and somewhere around number 399, there's fact-checking CNN's fact-checking folks.

The little guy in America....doesn't much care about TSA games at the airport.  So he's drawn a circle and limits himself to 500 miles and a drive to the destination.

The little guy in America....trusts his barber....more than his Senator.

The little guy in America....hasn't read 2,300 pages of text since he graduated from high school forty years ago, but he finds it odd that his Representative voted for the Obama health-care bill without having read a single page.

The little guy is voting in a few days, and the truth is....he might not have watched a single negative TV ad, and just base his vote on the price of gas down at the 7-11 shop.  It could be that simple in the end.
