The candidates running for presidency are not that important to me. When it comes to the election it does not matter to me. I’ve never really looked into the whole politics thing. So to be honest, I could care less. If it was up to me, I would make sure everybody gets what they want. Yet that is not possible. People all over the country are always complaining about the president and what his plans are. The only reason that it would affect me is if affected my parents jobs. Now that I realize it, it does affect my dad’s job. My dad works at the coal mine and his hours have been cut due to President Obama’s rules. If it was up to me, I would vote for someone that does not affect the coal mines. Now that I think about it, it does really matter to me who gets elected to be president. My interest level in the candidates that are running for presidency is not that high. The only thing that I am worried about is if it affects my parents work. This makes me mad because when it interferes with my family that means we are losing money on my dad’s paycheck due to shorter work hours. I do not really get into the whole election stuff, but I worry about my family and our money. Now we will have to wait and see what our country’s new president will do for us.
