I’m hesitant to talk about potentially divisive topics on my blog, but how can I not talk about Super Tuesday? I just hope we can set aside our differences and talk about this like rational people.
That being said, I am a die-hard Registered Independent.
It fits me and my style.
I like it.
My hubby is also a Registered Independent, so I don’t feel so alone.
I’m adamant about voting for the person you most agree with, regardless of party-line. The important thing is that you get out there and VOTE!
Independents like me are usually bombarded by information from both sides. We are courted like our votes actually matter.
But, around the time of the Primaries we’re treated like second-class citizens. We’re reminded over and over that voting in a Primary as an Independent is a felony. Yes, a felony! Fine. I can play by those rules. At least our phones are silent, and the junk mail is non-existent.
At first I was upset by the harshness of it all until I realized that as an Independent I don’t really have a horse in this race yet. When it comes right down to it, I don’t care who gets the Republican Nomination. I don’t care who gets the Democratic Nomination. I’ll let all of you Party People fight amongst yourselves to decide that one.
I haven’t pledged my loyalty to one party or the other, so why does it matter to me?
There are good arguments on all sides, and Registered Party People have a tough job today.
So, those of you who have pledged your faith to one party or the other, VOTE in your Primaries. I can’t wait to see where this leads us, and I can’t wait for the race to begin.
