Well, it is less than 3 weeks before the midterm elections, so I am going to get a bit political until then. Its more than a hobby but less than an obsession.
I don't have a political party by loyalty. I generally vote Democratic because they support my views here in Maryland. But mostly, I try to vote be perceived honesty and concerns over issues I care about.
I consider my self "independent" in the sense that fair voting, honest and "greater good" concerns matter most to me. I care about fair and competitive election districts, getting as many people to vote as possible, and good honest debates between candidates. I don't like corporate money in political campaigns; businesses have no legitimate place in elections.
I'll discuss some particular elections in some detail in the coming few weeks.
And I will stop posting about politics shortly after the elections until late 2016.
