Somebody asked me today what my political affiliation is.
That question always pisses me off. Labeling each other with the implications of voting along ‘party’ lines has always struck me as one of the stupidest damn things a person could do.
In fact, I’ve always said that I think the concept of the ‘2 party system’ should be shit-canned completely. I’ve never understood what service that antiquated system serves.
I mean, if I had to pick a side that my ideology is more aligned with, then I’d have to say that I am a liberal Democrat.
Except that I’m not.
I don’t think ANYONE is really COMPLETELY in line with any one political party. Or at least, they SHOULDN’T be.
I know that it sounds kind of simplistic and naïve, but I’m really just about voting for the best person that’s running, whether they be a Republican, Democrat, Independent, or Lesbian Nazi Party.
Ok, maybe voting for a Nazi would be a stretch. Plus, I’m pretty sure the Nazi party doesn’t have too many lesbians, so right there the Nazi party and I are at a fundamental impasse. Come to think of it, I think if there were more lipstick lesbians in the Nazi party, they might learn to lighten up a little. Because, quite frankly, I think they are a tad uptight. Just an observation I’ve gleaned.
What was I talking about again?
Oh yeah, the party system.
Anyway, it just gets my goat when I see our political leaders voting blindly along party lines. Like just last week, when EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN voted to repeal our new health care initiative. Really, guys? Every single one of you felt that way about it? Holy shit, being a part of a political party has become like being a part of the Borg. Not that the democrats are any better… they pull the same kind of shit.
Anyway, to get back to the beginning of my post……. Today someone asked me what my political affiliation was, and I said, “I vote for the best man for the job. Period”
P.S. Notice that I said “Man”. That’s cause I don’t think girls should do anything except run around in sexy underwear and service me. Well, maybe not, but I think that the world would be a better place if we at least gave that a shot. Look, I’ve been more than happy to try things YOUR way, now at least try to be open-minded and try MY way for a bit. What do ya say?
