The Continuing Election

I’m worried that most people are already burned out on our presidential election, just when things are starting to get interesting. This should be the time when people start actually paying attention, but the primaries were such a circus (on both sides) that fatigue has set in.

    That “(on both sides)” caveat behind, “circus,” makes it sound as if the level of nuttiness during the Democratic debates and primaries was basically equivalent to what happened with the GOP. Really? On both sides? Pretty much the same thing?

    No, not the same thing at all! And certainly not the same level of nuttiness. I was just pointing out that without Bernie Sanders, the Democratic primary (including the debates) would have been extremely boring. And the downside of that is that with all the attention given to the primaries, there will naturally be some degree of fatigue now.

    I’m fighting burnout by getting involved at the district and county levels. It’s actually very interesting and ultimately very important helping get the word out about good judicial, sheriff, and statehouse candidates. I’ll campaign and vote for Clinton but I’ll never meet her much less influence her. At the district level I’ve already met two state reps, three judges and the sheriff and had sincere face to face discussions with each of them. Access is there for anyone.

    Exactly David! We need to have more people get involved politically, especially at the local level. I’ve had access all the way up to the US Senate level when I worked on campaigns. And even if you don’t work on a campaign, it is not that hard to get a meeting with your elected representatives. Well done, and keep up the good work!
