Here we go, it's started already with the primary turd slinging ads. It's incumbent on us and everyone else to make sure our wishes are known. If you are declared, vote in the primaries, then make sure you are positioned to vote in November. Now then, I can hear the bleating about how one vote makes no difference. Well, if you don't vote, you deserve the governance that someone else picks out for you. You do, indeed, deserve it, and I have no problem if you wish to be controlled by some a$$wipe picked by others. The problem with that for me is that you are taking me down with you. That's NFG out of the gate. I don't mind losing in a contest, but losing by others defaulting on their responsibility just rubs me wrong. "All politics is local," the late great Tip O'Neill is reputed to have said, and it's true enough. That's why voting in the primaries is so important, it influences the state races which are WAY important in the midterm cycle. Take the time to go to the primary polls, that's where you'll be heard if at all.
