To my fellow Americans:
My name is Jaye Strait. I live in Southbridge Mass. I'm registered voter (I) and I exercise that right in every election since 1972. Like many (I) independent voters of my generation, I tend to vote for the candidate whom I think represents traditional American values and the one seems the most competent leader. Making this determination accurately has become increasingly difficult (to state the obvious) since the "Watergate" scandal of the 1970's
The media it seems gives liberal (D) candidates more exposure with a positive spin and Republican & libertarian candidates less with a more negative spin or none at all. I'm confused about the individuals running because I look to the media in all it's forms to inform me truthfully about my choices. That principle "Choice" and making the right one is crucial to America's future. Sadly the media cannot be relied on to deliver the goods. The media is a vital part of our founding principles of freedom. We as a people cannot be truly free without an impartial media. Reading and watching a wide variety of sources can help but doesn't give you the complete picture either. In the end gut feelings and self interest are what drive my decisions when I enter the voting booth not ideology. I vote for the candidate I think represents founding principles of America and most competent regardless of party.
Today and for this most important "Special Election" Scott Brown is that candidate. I feel that our country is off the tracks. I see nothing but more bad news for me and my family in the future. We my family and friends are afraid of what is happening to our country. What will become of us? The reason I have no faith in the leadership in Washington is blatant corruption, Incompetence. In addition, ONE PARTY (D) in control isn't good at all. "Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely". This is a very dangerous combination of power, incompetence, and political correctness that in the end equals disaster. Scott Brown if elected can change that. We can make history by electing Scott Brown to the US Senate . Thank you
