I won’t go into an anecdote, cuz everyone gets tired of my “when I was” crap, I will just start to explain my political attitude.
I’m not a republican. I’m registered unaffiliated, I think it’s called where I live, however, some time ago, I realized I would not vote for a Dem, unless it’s a truly remarkable Dem.
I Voted for Bayh, the first year I could vote I believe, and I voted for lawson, and for a few others, but I thought that some were remarkable, and others were personally interesting (cuz I knew a couple back then) I wouldn’t vote for any of those people again, but if I had a liebermann on the ballot, I might vote for him, cuz he can’t be any more squishy than the republicans that represent me in general. I voted for lugar, and I regretted that, the man proved himself an idiot, more than once.
But the my point is, that the question in your mind, shouldn’t be “what party is this person.” but rather “WHO is this person?”
I have NEVER completed my voting ballot, EVER. Because I don’t vote if I don’t know what I’m voting for, that is not so with too many democrats (likely the majority) who just vote for “The Party,” and think they are doing good. That is pathetic. Look at poor alvin green, guy simply registered as a candidate, and caught the ire of the national democrat party, for winning an election in the exact same way that the national democrat party tells their “constituents” to vote. They voted for the first person with a D next to their name.
Don’t learn about the candidate, don’t learn about the issues, don’t actually consider the nature of the election, just push “D” (I think automated party line voting options should be a violation of the VRA) And VOILLA! you have a freeze dried, no thought national and state government you don’t have to fuss about, until you lose your job, your kids, pay for your underage daughters abortion without ever knowing she is pregnant, and the defense of the guy who just tried to break into your house last week, but who’s case is on appeal.
JUST PUSH “D!”
It’s like the genius from gradeschool who said “the answer is always C” when you were too stupid to take a test.
The Democrats treat you as stupid, and you prove it.
by always pressing “D.”
