No Party Affiliation

This is the first election that I have volunteered to pound the pavement in support of a candidate; one with No Party Affiliation. What an eye-opener. It is amazing how many otherwise thoughtful, concerned citizens express support for my candidate’s positions and then tell me that they would have voted in support but they have made pledges to their party to not support any other candidates.

Have we as a nation so submerged our individual values that we are content to let partisan party politics decide what is best for us? Worse, we let shadowy special interests control “the party message” which we dutifully follow in mindless lock-step.

What ever happened to voting for the person to represent you who most supports YOUR values, regardless of party affiliation?
