As many of you know I reside in Massachusetts. This election cycle we have the opportunity to elect the first woman governor in our state’s history. I will not be voting for Martha Coakley. She is not governor material, IMHO. I have met her and while she smiles obsequiously, you can see the calculation in her eyes. She reminds me of Hillary Clinton to the extent that she is clearly intelligent, cares about the issues, yet fails to connect to the citizenry.
I have decided instead to vote for the independent, Evan Falchuk. His platform more closely aligns with what Democrats used to represent.
I feel that the best way to rid ourselves of Citizens’ United is to not vote for their candidates. And don’t think for a moment that the Ds aren’t taking advantage of the loopholes that crap piece of legislation and the ultimate snake vote by the not so Supreme Court upheld.
First, I need to apologize for all of the times I encouraged people to vote for Ds regardless of whether they were true progressives. Second, I realize that not everyone can have the luxury of throwing away their vote; there is little difference between the D and R candidates running.
I will be quite interested to read your opinions and welcome any feedback.
