Glad to be an Indy.

I am most glad to not be a Democrat or a Republican. I have definite issues with both political parties. I’m not a liberal and I am certainly not a “Conservative.” Although I think there is no such thing as a conservative these days of relentless trolling. None the less I am proud to be an Independent.

And the reason I’m glad is because of the recent elections in Virginia where the Democrats took a beating. Don’t want to identify with that. So, I am safe in the middle. Most proud to be an Independent and separated from the conservatives as well. Donald J. Trump, KMA!

Here are my policies: I believe women should make their own decisions about their own body. And on the other end I have no clue what to do for Transgenders. I just don’t get it. Nor do I want to. Just find a wall urinal and hold your skirt high while peeing. We don’t need to force schools to spend the money to install a third bathroom. However, I am okay with same sex marriage. Go for it. Just get out of my face when whining about LGTQ issues.

But what I stand for is good public school education. Small class size and more teachers. Teachers earning a reasonable income. Clean water and clean air is an imperative. Renewable energy with its attending jobs creations is very important. Plus less carbon monoxide wafting into the air would be helpful to cool down the earth. I would like to see health care benefits for everyone. Yes, it will cost us. However, it could be paid for by recouping the lost revenues giving away to the rich and large corporations. In other words we all, including the rich, can contribute to this. When Eisenhower built the Interstate highway system it wasn’t paid for by bake sales or selling popcorn door to door. We all paid for this highway system and surely benefited because of its convenience and expressway. America has big shoulders and can easily accomplish paying for benefits to our American citizens. We just need to shake the money trees on Wall Street and in and around Amazon and Google. Warren Buffett needs to pay more taxes on a percentage basis than his private secretary. And did I ever tell you this? I’m glad to be an Independent. Go Indies!

I come from a family who migrated from the parched red dirt Plaines of southern rural Oklahoma. Migrating to blue collar working class community of East Los Angeles. There is where I was born. I am Mr. Writermelon. I can only write what my grammar and spell checker allows. I am neither profound nor profane. Boy howdy! Send comment to:
