Primary Day. Finally

 I am running for Congress because I am a businessman, not a politician, [but I want to be a politician above all else so I am spending thousands of dollars, OPM, for these glitzy ads].  I am Trey and I approved this message.

It is Primary Election Day in Indiana.The good news is that the spate of bad political advertising and dinner-time robocalls may abate-- for a while.  The bad news is someone is going to prevail at the polls.

Well, "we" are going to take back Washington, or the Country, or perhaps the promises we've made.

Say, who "gave away" Washington in the first place, or who took it away?

Indiana has an "open primary" which I personally find  to be an abomination.  Sign your name and mark "R" or "D".  Pick a different party next primary if you so desire.  What sort of party politics is that?  Ticks me off.

Well, the state of the state and the nation, not to mention the local scene, ticks me off anyway.

Have to get up and go to the polls.  Politics truly do make strange bed-fellows.   I probably will be casting my vote for the darling of the millennials, though they are making the choice for the wrong reasons.  My motives are pure.  Purely intended to throw a wrench into the works.

 Obstructionism:  Hope for the nation.

RR is reputed to have said  that the ten scariest words in the English language are, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you."

Perhaps a more accurate statement would be, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help myself."

Two statements sum this post and perfectly describe the status quo:

1. The bad news is someone is going to prevail at the polls.

2. I'm from the government and I'm here to help myself.

Well done, sir.

According to one candidate, Indiana is the last great hope for America.

LOL. Make it count David! The nation is depending on Indiana!!!

Chuck, thank you, but it is that time of year when this sort of thought comes more or less unbidden.

KC Bob, I wish I could hope strongly enought.

Votes in Indiana secured a place on the ballot for someone.

Vee, shameful, isn't it?
