I would probably be independent if they had a prayer of getting elected. I figure I'd be throwing a vote away by going independent: you all know full well that it's gonna be either Democrat or Republican winning. For me, it would be too much of a risk to allow 1 lost vote to a Republican, allowing a Democrat in office. Basically, I vote for the party that's going to cause me the least amount of stress. Democrats do not fit that bill (for me) because they pander to people who are against every single solitary thing I do, be it work or play.
That didn't work out so well the last election, & I'm already feeling the heat from it ; My state taxes jumped 25%, my phone & satellite TV bills have all increased, my health care costs have risen 300%, & I now have even less of a chance of seeing any new off-roading areas opening up. I can't buy mercury for my carburetor sync. gauges any more, a carb cleaner that I've been using for almost 30 years has now been reduced to the potency of dish soap, new motorcycles are now getting heavier, slower & more expensive due to emissions standards thanks to all the treehuggers getting there way left & right during this new administration.
I've been getting out & enjoying myself alot more lately than in the past several years. Before, it was all about making money....... but now, I'm thinking I'd better enjoy myself before every last thing that I enjoy is outlawed, or taxed to death!!!
the good ol' days. it's only going to get worse from here on out..............
