U.S. election: Your global views
What makes an INDEPENDENT? Do you qualify?
No right or wrong just perception and hopeful acceptance.
Let's face it, candidates know it's the middle they have to convince they are the one that can do a great job at being elected their representative.
Here's my personal definition of an Independent.
Share yours and feel free to tell me where I'm off base.
# 1.) An Independent must be willing to vote for a Democrat or Republican or any other party for that matter.
# 2.) An Independent must NOT look at Democrats or Repubclians as being "The bad guys vs. the Good guys".
#3.) An Indpendent must be open minded and accept that good ideas and policy can and do begin with any, either and both partes. If you can't name a good policy from both parties you fail the test.
#4.) Your personal voting history must show votes in the column of both parties.....It's impossible to claim independence and vote for only one side.
#5.) Is a person who can not identify themselves with one party or the other.
#6.) Possess an overbearing conviction not to align and conform to popular thought or mood of the day opinion.
#7.) Could care less what the majority opinion is.
#8.) Administers a disgusted mindset in applying a conception of those hard fast in displaying opinion basis on party platform.
#9.) First and foremost above all believes in the idea of freedom of thought and opinion regardless of which party they are assigned for displaying such opinion or idea.
#10.) Believes that no party or person is evil on the basis of being chosen...That the differeneces in opinions are just that...A difference in opinion.
