Trish is fond of characterizing independents like myself as wishy-washy fence-sitters she says always vote for the same party every election anyway, so we might as well get off the fence and join the Democrat Party.
Well, Trish, today I got up on a higher, more solid fence and joined the Independent Voters of America.
Here’s a video that succinctly sums up the IVA’s position:
According to Tech President:
Veteran political ad-maker Bill Hillsman — the man behind “hilarious and highly effective ads” for Paul Wellstone, Jesse Ventura, Ross Perot and others — has launched Independent Voters of America.
Said Hillsman: “We are building the largest online community of self-identified independent voters, with the goals of bringing fresh voices and more choices into our politics, acting as a counterweight to the two major political parties, and to reduce gridlock, force progress and bring a new accountability to Washington.”
My iVoter score is 533. I don’t know what that means yet, so I’ll assume it’s somewhere on the left of the political spectrum because the old white guy in the video was in the 300s and the middle-aged black guy was 675.
