Election season is here and once again I find myself the man without a party. The democrats in my life(including my wife) all think I’m a crazy right-winger. The crazy right-wingers(my brother) think I’m a left-wing nut. There are many parts of the platforms of both parties with which I agree. There are many parts of the platform of both parties with which I disagree. I just read an opinion online today that there’s no way anyone can be undecided between these two candidates. I’m living proof that that can happen. I’ve spent this election wishing for an independent candidate to jump in the race to provide an alternative. It looks like this won’t happen. I will be tuning in to the debates hoping those will help me make my final choice. I am also not jumping into the political discussion of FriendFeed or the like. I can’t deal with zealots from either side.
As an addendum – McCain’s pick – Perfect pick for him. Cements conservative vote. Balances age issue. Known as a reformer with integrity(unless allegations being investigated are true).
