How many of you know people who claim they are independents? One of my oldest friends claims he’s one. I saw him two years ago and he was all “Trump’s a dictator”. He gets his news from MSNBC. His wife and her family are Dimocrats. But he’s an independent. I wonder when was the last time he voted for a Republican? Since we live in different states we have grown apart both politically and personally. It’s sad because at one time we were really good friends.
He is the exception to the quote falsely attributed to Churchill, that said If you’re not a liberal when you’re 25, you have no heart. If you’re not a conservative by the time you’re 35, you have no brain.
Most of us get more conservative as we get old. Alas, my friend didn’t. He went from conservative to libertarian to “independent”.
I have another friend who sez she votes for the best candidate regardless of party. I’m no sure if she classifies herself as an independent or not. I haven’t asked her. We don’t talk politics. Her father was career Navy so I suspect she leans right.
Now in my opinion an independent (unless you’re talking about Bernie Sanders who is an “Independent”) is someone who hasn’t chosen sides. This country has come to a crossroads. The rat bastard commies have seized control of the Dimocrat Party and are in the process of trying to institute a socialist utopia with a little fascism thrown in for good measure. Wait until the big corporations who think they’re in a fascist state wake up and find their assets seized by the rat bastard commies.
“Wait a minute! We were on your side!”
“You fucked up. You trusted us.”
Meanwhile, the independents who fell for the bullshit spewed by the corporate media will wake up and find out they didn’t get what they voted for. Either that, or they will get caught in the crossfire when the gummint comes and tries to confiscate all of our firearms.
“Wait a minute! I voted for common sense gun control, not confiscation.”
“Tough luck bucko”, said the ATF swat team as they kicked down the door of the independent voter in search of his firearms.
It was the independent voter (along with some manufactured voters in places like Fulton County Georgia) who helped elect President *. How do you like those high gas prices independent voter? At least there are no more mean tweets.
You wanna see fascism independent voter? Look at how the Fake News Media has become the propaganda arm of the Dimocrat Party. The Russian commies had Pravda. We have the Fake News Media.
We also have Farcebook and Twatter doing the bidding of the Dimocrat Party. Goebbels would have drooled over this.
So independent voter choose wisely although I fear it is too late.
