Election Fatigue

Is anyone else out there feeling SO ready for this election to just be over? 

I'm suffering from a major case of election fatigue. 

The negativity between the candidates is palpable and it leaves a very bad taste in my mouth - from both sides. Anyone else out there feel the same? 

Frankly, I am tired of hearing the same issues discussed time and time again. Maybe introducing some new topics into the mix would spice it up a bit. 
 
If I had my way, here would be some things I would like the politicians to focus on:

1) Why we teach Algebra and Calculus in high school, but not personal finance? (I am serious about this one.)

2) The benefits of turning the standard 5-day work week into a 4-day week. (YES! YES! YES!)

3) The current price of admission to a movie. I mean, c'mon.

4) Supporting food science that will make butter and sugar alternatives that taste EXACTLY the same, but are healthy. 

5) An imposed tax, that provides revenue for schools, on the purchases of:
- Jeggings
- Press-on nails
- Nestle Strawberry Milk
- Clothes for animals
- Anything made by Ed Hardy

6)Tax incentives for production companies to make sitcoms like they did in the 90s. Think Seinfeld, Friends and Cheers.

7) Training programs for police to not only pull over those driving too fast, but for people driving too slow.

8) Longer maternity leave for new Moms. (I am serious about this one too.)

9) Criminalizing mayonnaise. 

It's my list. Mayo has got to go. 

10) Mandates that regulate the amount of times any one person (my sister) can ask a woman (me) when they are going to have a baby.

What about you? Any issues you wish were a little higher up on the political discussion list?

  1. I will elect you for president if you can eliminate mayo from this world. Seriously.

  3. haha no Jocie! Mayo is vital to tuna and turkey sandwiches! get it through your head! I'm going to make you a mayonassie and peas ice cream cone.

    I like the list- though Jeggings are bomb so you can scratch that ish off. And why are you focusing on this list but not pregnant yet...?

    I'm sick of the election too- all of a sudden everyone is a political genius.
