Tired of the status quo

I cast my absentee ballot today.

I was pleased that our town hall knew not to charge for notarizing it.  Sometimes small town government gets it right.

I was disappointed that candidates of both major parties and the two major parties themselves seem to be retreating to the worst positions within the parties.

I believe the people want representatives that will work together for the common good, but our choices seem fixed on seeking the extremes.

Wherever possible, I selected an independent candidate.  I know that few have a snowball’s chance, but I want whoever is elected to know that their time is running out.  Soon enough there will be enough people who have had enough with the status quo.

I want representatives that will work for the common good not for the extreme ideals of either party.

If you are out there and called to make a difference in 2016, start building your grass roots base now.
