Maybe it should be more like this: Get out and vote? Does it really matter? Yes, I’ve sort of reached that point. Well not entirely.
I did vote and I voted early. I went Saturday to the
Turkey Thicket Rec Center. I had to go past all sorts of people wanting
to hand out flyers for their candidate. I very nicely said no to all of
Once inside the center I went to the main gym to vote. I
think there were more workers then people voting. But then again it
around 4:30 when I headed down. There was a very slow trickle of people
coming in over the time it took me to vote.
And it took me
awhile to vote. I had a hard time figuring out who I should vote for for
mayor. I had a long internal talk with myself as I was walking to the
poling place. The choices Muriel E. Bowser and David A. Catania. I have
problems with both of them. I voted for Bowser in the primary because I
could not stand Vincent Gray. The problem I have with Bowser is her
inexperience. She reminds me of Adrian Fenty in that respect and his
term in office did not turn out very well. The problem I have with
Catania is he can rather contentious when dealing with people. There are
also times he comes off very pompous and condescending. Two qualities
that aren’t very good for any politician to have.
I stood for
several minutes mulling over what I was going to do. I finally made a
decision and voted. I’m not over joyed with who I voted for but am
hoping for the best.
In general that last year or so I’ve been
rather disappointed with the way things are going politically in this
country. I’ve had fewer and fewer posts about politics in general to the
I’m going to do a little more mulling on this just like
voting for mayor and try and come up with a post about where my mind is
in regards to politics in this country.
