I follow discussions posted on Delphi from all angles and then try to verify what I've read, pro and con a candidate or issue.

I like doing my own research rather than voting a straight party ticket.

Yes, you’ve said that before.  In today’s climate, your attitude is unusual.  I never talk to anyone who votes across party lines anymore.

I have had big disappointments from politicians of my family's 4 generation party when I needed help so I left for the "I's" and have not had any regrets. Politicians are not the way they used to be.

Some are some aren’t. It bothers me that they get elected and immediately start working toward reelection.

Yes, especially US senators. One of mine only shows up at ekecyion time. When not in DC he spends all his spare time with 2nd wife rearing a second family in NY. He is in his 60's.

I never see mine. I’m sure they are somewhere, probably raising money.  I never hear about local events. Even during the election, they were never here. They sent other people out to stump for them

I remember when politicians were more involved in the community. Of course, those in DC got free or cheap air fare but they showed up when not working.
I was in an organization working to get a national law passed to help particular people. We sent letters to all 6 Reps and Senators from our state. 5 sent what amounted to form letters. The 6th sent what looked like a hand typed personal letter about how he related to our cause and would do what he could to support it. That was 1980. New lawyer from out of town knocked him out in the primary and got his seat in Nov. All we heard from his staff was Reaganomics this and Reaganomics that. Rep later became the senator who lives in NYC. Totally useless to voters.
