A few thoughts on Election Day.
I do tend to lean toward Republican when forced to make a choice. However I do consider myself open minded, and will vote for who I feel the best candidate is, regardless of party affiliation.
I did watch all the debates, have read many of the comments and speeches during this campaign. For me several things have been a major annoyance, including the following:
• Campaigning started a full year and a half ago.
• Imagine what could have been with all the money that was instead spent on campaigning. USA Today reports that total campaign spending could approach $4 BILLION.
• Vice President Biden, “if they would get out of the way, and let us do our job”.
Above all the other dumb comments that were thrown out there, the vice president’s comments were the clincher for me. When there is known gridlock, it takes a true leader to work through the gridlock to achieve a solution, not a get-out-of-the-way approach. When everyone is supposed to work together toward a common goal, everyone’s voice should be heard, and everyone should be working toward the conclusion.
I will not say who I voted for, but I think it is safe to say who I did not.
