I always said “I hate politics” or “politics is boring”. But I mostly voted in most elections. H. Ross Perot twice – just for the f of it. I think I forgot to vote in 2000. Even voted Republican once – Bush in 2004 because I liked that he used his daddy’s cabinet – then he swapped them out for new people, so last time I did that. Always indy, never declared a party ’til 2018 when I _had to_ because I decided I’d get into a politician ONCE, just to feel a bit of what the fanatics feel about theirs. So I got behind Andrew Gillium. I liked him. I could hold my breath and declare myself a Democrat under the Progressive Caucus in Florida for a bit as I was able to agree with maybe 65-70% of their long winded line-by-line positions on things at the time. It was exciting and fun! My guy got around 1/2% point below the guy that won, the DeSantis guy, which was about as 50/50 as I’ve ever seen. Loads of excitement. And that was that. No regrets and I understood why people get hyped over sometimes. But too much for me. But I did it once in my life and it was fun while I did it. Never trusted politicians, business people, religious leaders, right from the time I was a young teenager and I still don’t. I don’t “they’re out to get us” but I think people with power are in it for themselves, their familiies and friends, etc but sometimes they mean well too. Sometimes.
