I heard the phrase a couple of weeks ago, another term for us independents, often scoffed at and silly in such a hot race.
I don't belong to either party. I'm egregiously liberal in some respects; surprisingly conservative in others, and though neither party has captured my allegiance, democracy makes me heart race.
I believe that leadership may be crucial, but action begins in my backyard.
I believe in being the people and the country I want my kids to inherit. I believe our finest years are ahead of us because despite all the crap, we can be an amazing, good people.
I am heading to the drop off early this morning, our ballots in hand, hopeful we will get it right, right about now, when it counts.
