The Compulsive Republican

I am a Republican with very distinctive political goals. First, is to make my own future and take care of my own family and to be allowed to do so. I do believe in charity and lending a helping hand. I believe in economic independence, the choice to help out my neighbors and my family. I also believe in rules and laws.  I enjoy going to the poles, all dressed up for an important event, with my shoes and handbag to match.

With this being said, I am extremely compulsive. I do not research all the issues on the ballet.   This is not generally a Republican characteristic.  I walk into the booth and am usually surprised at something on the ballet. Having no opinion whatsoever about this issue and feeling the need, the duty, the responsibility to vote. I compulsively pick the side of the issue, right there in the booth and I hold it in my mind for a long second and pick the best answer? Wait I mean the best choice for me.   Which is somewhat the same strategy I use when shopping for shoes.  I usually don’t have an exact style in mind until I get to the store and have all the choices before me.  Although I do tend to vote on Republican side, but not because of knowledge, it’s my father’s voice in my head.

As a responsible voter, a good citizen, I should be completely informed of all issues.  I usually know beforehand, my vote for a particular person in major elections and not a whole lot on the “little stuff”.  As I have grown, I have come to realize that the “little stuff” becomes huge stuff when not enough thought goes into the vote. I’ve never voted in a primary, I will in 2012. In 2012, I will make it a priority to go to the poles with knowledge and a good pair of shoes and not be surprised or uniformed by one thing on the ballet.

The vote is our voice, our only voice – this time, I want to think before I speak.
