The upcoming primary is going to be totally different than most elections in that voters in Clinton, Highland and Montgomery Counties will end up voting in central locations- the fraction of Warren County that is in OH-3, will go to their regular voting locations. So the three counties are sending letters to all voters to notify them of their new polling places and offering them an option to vote by mail.
Now- I’ve had a call from a few Republicans wondering why they are getting notified. The reason? You are free at any primary to switch parties- all you’ll have to do is sign a “loyalty pledge”- form 10z, and until the next primary- you will be a Democrat. Or- if you decide you’ve had it with our 2 party system- you can start asking for an “issues only ballot” at the next primary and become an “independent.” Warning- if you ever plan on running for office as an independent- you’ll need a ton more signatures to get on the ballot- read this post to find out more.
That being said, Greg offers a tip to buy the best bicycle you can afford (because of course, we’ll all be riding bicycles eventually when gas prices finally go up to where they are in other parts of the world).
Out main discussion is about the firing of General Stanley McChrystal by the President for comments in Rolling Stone Magazine. It’s good to see that there are still some publications stirring the pot and generating news that exposes the failings of our system. The reality is, if we aren’t out of both Iraq and Afghanistan by the time we next vote for president, there should be a firing of our President by the voters. Campaign promises should be kept.
Before you watch- I don’t endorse Mr. Hunter’s choice of words about Senator McCain- and Ms. Palin. This edition should carry an R rating thanks to Hunter’s remarks. But- that’s unblemished citizen journalism for you.
