I’m an independent voter – technically.
I definitely lean Republican, but a few years ago I got so sick of party politics I formally switched my affiliation to Independent.
So 2012 was the biggy. I will be 100% up-front and tell you that I voted for Mitt Romney and backed him 110%. Simply put, I’m not an Obama fan. You just need to read a couple of my posts on Claimwire to see that. So I not only voted for Mitt, I donated some money as well. I was all-in.
Leading up to November 6th I was a complete Political junkie. I watched Bill O’Reilly almost every night. I listened to Rush every chance I could. I read stories on realclearpolitics.com, and looked at the polls closer than I looked at sports scores.
I’m bummed out and burned out. Haven’t watched a full hour of O’Reilly, nor listened to more than a few minutes of Rush since Election Night. And do you know what? I don’t miss it at all.
It’s not that I don’t care. I love our country, and believe it to be the greatest country in the world. But, I’m tired, and I feel like my voice is not heard anymore. Something happened on November 6th that hurt deeply. I don’t think I’m alone in feeling that way.
I’m sure I’ll get interested again, but right now I’m tired of politics.
