EDITOR: Politicians, beware. “Declined to State” are inclined to vote.
Both parties should be aware that from now on, longtime party members will be leaving the “Lock Step Parade” of chosen party politics. The disenfranchised voter’s battle cry normally trumpeted is: “My Party left me, I didn’t leave them.” “I’m still Conservative or I’m still Progressive. But, my party has prioritized the party’s survival over the needs of the country.” Could it all be coming home to roost?
1. Corporations are not people when it comes to the interest of the people’s needs.
2. Super PACs are not exempt from transparency and accountable in public elections.
(Please add your own gripes to this list.)
Our little county has already experienced unexpected results at the polls. Is this an exception to the parties’ rule or is it the Declined to State’s voting independent of their old parties and for their own pocket book? Have we had enough? Spin, attack ads, fibs and just outright lies? Time will tell.
I really hope this is the beginning.
