I am not a Republican or Democrat
I have voted since 1972. I have voted for Republicans, Democrats and Independents. I always try to vote for the best man or woman for the office.
Sometimes it is hard. A case in point was the 2000 Presidential elections. I couldn't stand Gore. He figure he was so great that we had to vote for him. And Bush was Cheney's puppet so bad you could see Cheney's fingers in Bush's mouth when he spoke. I wrote in McCain who I supported.
I have voted for Ford, Reagan, Bush (Senior), Clinton, and Obama.
I vote for their policies that they pass. It is amazing how many politicians say one thing and do another. If I can meet them, I do so. Living in Portsmouth, NH every four years (they actually start much sooner) I get the chance to meet and talk to most of the candidates. And I am getting ready to write about each one I meet again. (I did this when I was a member of a writing group called Gather.)
So agree or disagree with me. I love listening to others opinions. And I will share mine.
