I knew this would happen sooner or later.Posted Tuesday, November 1, 2011, at 9:14 PM
It seems that I'm not the only one dissatisfied with the current state of affairs when it comes to American politics. The never ending battle between the far left and the far right, leaving those of us in the middle disenfranchised. Well I came by this article a few minutes ago, and after reading it, I thought, what a great idea! It's not a new concept, but it sure is a whole new way of trying to achieve a goal. This nation is at a turning point. The Democrats will nominate Obama, while the Republicans are engaged in a battle of the hard right trying to gain control of the party. Net result, the moderates and independents are left out in the cold again. If this new movement has any success, it will forever change the face of politics in America. If they achieve 20-30% of the popular vote, they will be a force to be reckoned with. The question will be asked, should the President be elected by a majority or a plurality? The last time that happened was in 92. Was the outcome good or bad?, that depends on your point of view. Is this the wave of the future? Only time will tell. Here is the link to the article.

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
