I had a hard time until I read through https://www.progressivefl.org/about/platform/ very slowly and carefully. I realized that I don’t have to agree with everything but I was surprised that I agreed with most things. So, now I safely consider myself a Democrat in the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida. After 25 yrs as a stubborn and proud Independent, I can actually see a positive future in this kind of platform. It’s a strange feeling but I’m starting to understand why people cheer now.

What’s good is I can change back anytime. I’m still uncomfortable saying “I’m a Democrat” but that’s old me that’s uncomfortable. New me sees something strong enough to fix the Democratic party _and_ bring the Republican party away from the far far end of the thing and back a bit towards center-right where it should be.

 What I love about Andrew Gillum’s campaign is that he’s working really hard at staying positive and staying away from mud-slinging. It’s refreshing. I don’t think I would be as enthusiastic if it was a negative campaign. I’m so tired of “how bad [x] is”. A little is fine but less is best.

 “Polls don’t vote. People do.”
That’s one of his quotes and I love it.
