Peruse my thoughts...
We made my website active this week and I have had a great response and questions from several people. The one that really made me stop to think was the one where they asked what ticket I was running on. I know that for years I have become frustrated with political ads and signs that say "Vote For ..." and don't tell me what ticket they are running on. Imagine my chagrin when I realized that I was doing the same thing! I am so sorry! I can only say that I honestly didn't think about it. I am a strange person in that I think both parties have good and bad ideas and it's really not about party for me. I consider myself a conservative liberal but most of the things in the news and legislation align me best with the Democratic party. So, that is what I am.
Kind of makes you wonder though, why do we worry more about what political party a candidate is running on? (Which I do, as well.) Shouldn't we be asking what the candidate believes in? Or, to be rude and brutally honest, asking them if they will actually represent ME and not the party?
