I've always believed that there should be some standard of knowledge of either the person or, in the case of resolutions etc, what the underlying issues are, before a vote may be cast.
In this past election for example, out of all the positions being vied for, the only ones I cast my vote for were president and one of the senate seats. I didn't know enough about any of the other people running for things like the school board, so I didn't vote for any of them.
The (D) or (R) after there name has no meaning to me and I defy anyone to explain them.
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
