I’m not a registered Republican. For that matter I’m not a registered Democrat either. In fact, I’m not a registered member of any party. I think California currently calls people like me “no party preference.” It used to be “declines to state.” I like the sound of that one better. Chances are pretty good that I’ll vote for the Democratic presidential candidate this year. It’s not that I have a warm or even tepid regard for the Democratic candidates. It’s because of the Republican candidates. Most GOP presidential candidates are just repellent. This year, the two leading Republican hopefuls appeal to the side of human nature that’s usually the raw material of sensationally brutal and senseless crimes. What we’ve got here, folks, is a sociopath and a guy with borderline personality disorder. The sociopath, Cruz, is what they call in crime fiction an organized offender while the BPD guy, Trump, is a disorganized offender.
If either of these guys wins the presidential election we’re doomed or, even worse, doomded. The good news is that, at least according to current polls, neither stands a chance against a Democrat who can walk, talk, and doesn’t drool too much. Naturally I’d like the less likely winner to run. I think Big D is my man. I’m backing him, at least in the fight for the nomination, 101%. I’d like to go 110% but that’s impossible since 100% is an absolute maximum. I think the extra 1% is within sampling error so I’m sticking with it.
I urge all like minded citizens to follow my example.
