I'm an independent voter who's disgusted by all the purity tests by Democrats, Republicans, and the Tea Party. I have a mixed voting record, like everybody else in our home.
I want someone to represent me and my family in elections. I want our neighborhoods safe. I want our schools to produce kids that can get into college and get a job. I want my husband's small business to be left alone to make a decent profit and not have to pay so many taxes. I want people who are able work to get a job and get off welfare.
I don't want someone telling me about how much more Christian they are than anybody else. I don't want anyone who questions my patriotism because I voted for so-and-so. I don't give a care who you've got working on your campaign or what other politicians say about you.
The questions I want answered by any who runs for elected office is, What have you done on your own? What are going to specifically do based on your own qualifications?
What you've done means much more than what party you're in or how partisan you are.
