I vote in every election, Presidential and mid-term. EVERY election. Since I could.
I have moved often within the states over the years. And one of the very first things that I always do is register with their Board of Elections. My right to vote is precious to me.
I have been a registered Republican and I have been a registered Democrat. I have even been registered with a third party.
But I can’t remember the last time I voted for a major party candidate for President.
I have positions on most political issues – strong, mostly immoderate positions, on most political issues. I am NOT a moderate, nor am I a “character voter” (in my mind, that usually substitutes for not having positions on the issues). My stands on issues run the gamut of liberal through conservative.
Once you read a blog post of mine that sounds liberal, some of you conservatives will be tempted to curse me under your breath and never read me again.

I can’t stop you from seeing what you think you see. All I can do is promise you that I will always try to make my case with a mix of common sense, decency, love of country, and a command of history and logic, and facts that I will source.
I am neither saint nor devil. But I am worth reading. I am worth your time and your consideration.
