I enjoy the freedom of being an independant - it avoids the trappings and groupthink of party politics.
I have found good and bad qualities in both McCain and Obama - both are at the heart of things political beings, optimized to gain votes and win elections.
I am finding the latent, underlying racism and fear pouring out of the Republican side to be disgusting and in direct opposition to core American values and our sense of liberty and freedom. I would like to see the Republicans return to the lean government, land of freedom, liberty for all thinking of Jefferson, Adams, and Washington.
I think our nation's founders would smile at the progress of our country that overcame slavery, bigotry, and elected a man who may best fit the vision of the American dream of equality for all peoples.
Whoever you vote for, please strip out any racist filters from your mind - this is America.
