Quote of the Day

From Tim Morrissey:

Your simple act of voting sends a message far stronger than just determining which candidate will win.  Voting scares the hell out of a lot of politicians, whose job security depends on hordes of voters not caring enough to vote.
My father often told me that voting lets the politicians know we're watching them.

If you don't like any of your choices, write someone in. Staying home is not an effective protest; it just tells our representatives that they can count on you staying out of the process.

I agree 100%! If you don't like what either of the two parties are offering, then vote for a different political party that better represents your views.

Thanks, Jill. Your dad was right.

Vote independently. Do not vote Republican or Democrat. Do not vote for evil or the lesser of two evils.
Vote independently.
