Marianne Williamson 2020....
Been doing a lot of research on the candidates now that I’ve finally found the time to take a deep dive into each one. I don’t always share the same politics as others. In a time of very extreme division and very extreme views in either direction, I usually find my own truth lies somewhere in the middle. I believe in healthy dialogue and open discussion, which these days feels sadly impossible. I don’t believe in social media witch hunts, soap boxes, or self righteousness. I don’t believe in media sensationalism. I am not a fan of “outrage culture” or “call out culture” and I like to pick my battles.
So it’s important to me to do my own research and figure out which candidates match my own views.
I believe in the best person for the job despite sex, age or race. I won’t vote for someone just because he’s a man or just because she’s a woman.
First up (for me), I won’t get behind any politician who is in bed with or taking money from Big Pharma. That narrows things way down. I also believe in an economy that incentivizes people to work hard and incentivizes businesses to create more jobs. I know that’s vague but I’ll leave it at that on here.
There are endless issues that are important to me such as immigration, green economy, the guns issue, and so on and I choose to keep my very specific opinions on all of them out of social media. That’s as specific as I’ll get for now. But after doing a lot of reading and research, my favorite is @MarianneWilliamson, followed by @juliancastrotx.
There’s always more studying to do and a long road ahead, so hopefully they will stay in the running long enough to get to see what they really have to offer.
As always, curious to hear your thoughts in the comments as long as it’s done in a constructive and decent manner.
