Reading the prognosticators on the intarwebs, I'm moved to tell the Republicans to not get cocky. The polls are all in your favor, but the only poll that matters won't be counted until tonight. There's no telling what the American voter might do, and we'll be doing it all day long.
My voter registration card says that I'm a Republican, but I've been thinking about changing that. The Republicans left me during the later years of the Bush administration. They pissed me off royally and the current crop of country club Republicans continue to piss me off. The next time I'm at the Courthouse during the business day, I might traipse in to the Registrar of Voters and make my party status "No Party". That's an option here in Louisiana. And I'm seriously considering it.
I was reading a blog called Simon Jester, and came across this little snippet.
Either act like adults charged with the responsible management of this country, instead of drunken teenagers with mom’s credit card, or we will un-elect you at the first opportunity.That's my philosophy too. I understand that it costs money to run a government. I understand it's complicated, but I want my elected officials to be frugal with my money. Exceedingly frugal, tight-fistedly frugal. I also want my elected officials to read and understand our Constitution. To voluntarily limit themselves to what the Constitution says they can and cannot do. And don't give me any crap about the commerce clause.
I'm voting against two Republicans today. Neither of them represents my philosophy for good government. They'll both win handily, probably with double-digits, but they won't do it with my vote. I am Simon Jester, and I'm here to watch and cause trouble.
