It seems the Independents are now in the drivers seat when it comes to directing our government. Good luck to them.
To me Independents are really not for much of anything..neither fish nor fowl; flying or swimming, as the case may be, with whatever wind or tide that passes their door on any given day.
It's hard to have a high regard for them. In conversation I have found them to pour out the latest radio talk show format and opinion or that of their favorite TV Evangelist or whatever the neighbor told them or whatever their particular industry house organ published that week. Often with radio listeners it is really funny to listen to because their indignation..and there is always a LOT of indignation..rises at the precise point of the subject that was voiced in the latest radio thingy.
It's like they wake up every four years or so and say "I'm agin it!!". How can we ever get anywhere this way?
