What, Me Worry?

I don’t play the lottery. If there were a vote to keep the lottery or stop it, I would vote to get rid of it. I don’t think easy money is good money. I’m fortunate that I have enough money to pay my bills and enjoy life. To have a large sum come to me by luck would interrupt the way I live my life. Yes, it would be nice to be able to buy anything, go anywhere, and do most anything, but I already have the necessities (so far as I’m concerned). I presently have the ability to travel and have a life that is productive and enjoyable. If I suddenly had a lot of money, I would worry about whether the money was safe, whether my investments were good, whether I should give more money to my children or to charity. Yes, I could drive a fancier car, have a larger home with a swimming pool, and enjoy one of these “Cadillac” health insurance plans. Nice, but I think I will just continue to be satisfied and grateful for my adequate income. What I crave more than money is good health.

Next, I would fight to establish a national healthcare program, where no medical care facility could refuse you.I would protect LGBTQ rights, female health rights and tear down walls for immigrants! Just saying…
