Apologies to the rest of the world as we drag out the laundry.
Obama for me. The first time I roundly endorsed him, although now I think he is isn’t anything special; middle of the road young democrat. He's better than what we had. More to the point: I cannot vote for the party of obstructionists
. Rarely do we see bills that come out of the Legislature where both parties are working together, and it’s frustrating. I won’t support small-minded Republicans having the sole purpose of blocking or undoing Obama’s administration; that’s treasonous in my book. The last good republican was Reagan
. After that, I became unaffiliated and definitely voted against republicans. Although in my state we have had to declare a party to vote in the Primary which is like the dumbest gerrymandering crooked trick to justify funding and boundaries if there ever was.
I prefer to paint myself as a “Centrist”
and having interests that cross over several platforms. As I grow older, I like the idea of forming a coalition government, and that we should have a PM (instead of a President) that is replicable. I think we in the United States should have direct vote and not this Electoral College
that steals the popular vote: When common people lacked education, before we had mass media and instant communication, the EC
made sense. But we’re not hayseed farmers anymore; we’re cultured educated citizens living better than most of the world in modern cities, and I think we’re mature enough to make up our own minds who should be leading the country.
And to finish, I wouldn’t lose sleep if both Democrat
parties imploded into oblivion. We need better alternatives than posturing posers trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill; I hate the helplessness every voter must feel when watching these events in Congress play out like a bad day in Kindergarten. Elected officials need to do the job they were elected for: Work for the best interests of the People, even if it means compromise - because some government is more useful than none at all. And while we’re at it, I’d really like a balanced budget and a plan to pay off the national debt that cannot be rescinded. That's just so basic to business. I mean, WTF is wrong with these people that we've hired?
