Election Day

My civic duty is done, I've voted.  I split my vote all over the place.  If you, your calls or your ad campaign has annoyed me be assured that I voted for your opponent.  If both you and your opponent annoyed me I voted Libertarian.  If you wanted to raise taxes I voted against it, if you wanted to exempt someone or something from taxes I voted against it, I figure we're all in this together.
Do I consider what the candidates stand for?  Of course I do, but then I remember that as a politician they lie, they only tell us what they think we want to hear.  So splitting my vote is my answer.  Plus I don't particularly want the Republicans taking control of  Congress.  Not because I'm a Democrat, been there done that, but because I don't want any party to dominate it.  We're probably better off when nothing gets done.
And remember, next time don't annoy me and you might just get my vote.

  1. I love your take on politics. Very similar to my own. My husband just returned from voting, and went specifically to vote Libertarian because of all the trash talking and ads, phone calls, etc. from the other candidates!

  4. Don't all politicians lie? Isn't that part of their remit - it is certainly the reason why i rarely vote for anybody.

Saturday in the Swamp

Beautiful cold day here, down to 36º last night and only expected to reach 60º today, but the sky is blue and it looks wintery. Lots to get...
