Hey, I Tried
I was hoping I could watch the Republican and Democratic Conventions without falling asleep. There was hope the Republican convention could actually get exciting with Ron Paul’s delegates causing some kind of ruckus. I heard through the grapevine that they did cause some commotion, but the media brushed it aside.
Watching the opening of today’s activities was not like watching paint dry. It was more like listening to paint dry. I do not know if RNC Chair Reince Priebus was drunk or is uncomfortable speaking in front of people, but that boy didn’t look right today.
I was considering joining a political party but thought better of it. But neither party has many good ideas and it shows. The best thing about being an Independent is that I can take the 2% of the Republican ideas that are good and the 2% of the Democratic ideas that are good and combine them with the 70% of the Libertarian, Reform, Green, Constitution, and The Rent is Too Damned High parties as well as the ideas I have kicked up over the years.
While there will never be a party convention for independents, that gives me more time to spend with real Americans while the other candidates hang out with party big-wigs with personalities of a wet dirty mop. Time to clean the mop and ring it out.
Watching a party convention is like watching a telethon. It’s all about a disease for which there is no cure and they want your money. I don’t want your money. It’s hard to like someone who does want your money. Even a political novice like myself knows that an independent cannot get votes if nobody likes him (or her). That’s why i try to be likable.
