Now that my fight with WordPress, Feedburner and RSS fees has now concluded, I’m ready for the next fight. The Collin County DNC Caucus!
I doubt fight is the right word; I’m guessing – take a good book so I can pass the time, while the organizers try to get everyone in the right place for our 2 minute discussion and vote. Organizing will take 99% of the time today.
Apparently, there was a precinct meeting yesterday but I didn’t get a call until later in the day, which happened to go to my voice mail. So, I’m waiting until 9am to give the guy a call back. He wants to send me some information for today. I’m more curious to know what I could possibly need other than my voter registration card, driver’s license and reasonably decent memory on who I’m supposed to vote for (which isn’t hard, that woman must be stopped). I guess it probably has something to do with what happens if there’s a tie – but frankly a thousand pin pricks
couldn’t wouldn’t change my vote.
Like the original caucuses, I’m curious to see what happens at a county convention. The papers I received said that they expect around 3300 delegates and attendees for today’s happenings.
In addition to the Presidential caucus, we will also vote on platform issues. This should get interesting. I somewhat expect, especially on national defense, to possibly be standing by my self – rebuild, win, go home. Can’t have the latter without the former. I like my society.
Government should be around to protect personal property rights and correct inefficiencies in the market. It’s a pretty broad statement that should have a narrow interpretation. I shall stand and caucus with these values in mind. Oh, and that woman must be stopped.
For the record, in case there’s some confusion, it’s not about a woman President, it’s about having that woman as President. Another well spoken and thoughtful lady with the right ideas – not-a-problem.
If it gets really juicy, I’ll call in a few audio blogs but my guess is that it won’t warrant the telephone call charges.
