Vote your conscience

I’ve had enough. The anger and nastiness of the political circus is now invading my personal space, and I don’t like it. This is not an election of who is best but who is less corrupt or nasty. The so-called debates and posts on un-social media like Facebook and Twitter highlight that.

So, to be clear, I’m “voting my conscience”: Ted Cruz. I will vote for the candidate who appears to be honest, forthright and civilized and has the best interests of our country in mind. I am not going to be influenced to vote against anyone out of fear or hate. Those seem to be the driving forces for most, today, and we all need to step back, take a deep breath and calmly look at facts – not the half-truths or fiction that is being constantly stirred up on the “news” channels and Internet.

At the very least, win or lose, I want to feel that my choice was my choice. I am not playing in the mud, anymore, and I hope you do the same.
