Wow, what a difference a major stay in the hospital makes.
See, before, Aunt Heidi was very tight-lipped about politics. But I guess she has a new motto after being attacked by a flesh eating bacteria, because she is lettin’ it ALL HANG OUT. We all had a several hour conversation about politics yesterday – and even more amazing, generally AGREED on everything that was being discussed.
See in the past, my immediate family usually pitted our votes against each other. I remember one year there was even a Clinton-Bush-Perot love triangle.
But now, we all seem to be in harmony (except that lovably conservative uncle who remains nameless, but what’s a family without one of those, right? He and I crack each other up around election time and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!).
BUT! Here’s the best part!
Heidi has a new platform for voting that I think we all should adopt.
Forget this experience crap. What has it got us? Chronyism. Cynicism. Doing things just cause it’s the way it’s always been done.
Heidi says we only vote for people if they are rookies.
Let’s hear it people! If you are new and ready to take on the old dodgers who have fucked up this country, go run for office! My family will vote for you.
You can thank Aunt Heidi for the idea.
