Who am I, you ask?
Often referred to as a 'taxpayer', a 'consumer' or a 'citizen', I am a free-thinking individual who knows what will best facilitate my own pursuit of happiness.
As a Californian, I live on the edge, under pressure and outside the box. I am adaptable, intuitive, and highly sensitive to hypocrisy.
I am slow to anger and, at times, my patience, tolerance and kindness are mistaken for weaknesses.
Underestimate me at your own risk.
Even though I am too busy being productive to constantly verbalize it, I am 'We the People' and I have power --- economic power, political power, creative power, intellectual power and spiritual power.
I am consistently mislabeled and misrepresented by biased, manipulative demographic exercises which attempt to categorize my anticipated behavior, such as voting.
Good luck with that.
Sure, I may have previously voted Republican, Democratic or Libertarian, but I retain my right to change my mind at any moment. I independently examine each issue and each candidate a' la carte.
Attempts to manipulate or deceive me are targeted with warranted suspicion. You can 'poll' me all you want during campaign season, but you will only know my final decision on election night.
Be prepared for my wrath from California in 2012.
I will reveal my intelligence, my confidence, and my power as an independent California voter on that day of revelation and celebration for unpredictable voters like me.
Politically molested by partisan liars and thieves, a multitude of vengeful California voters will adjust the balance of power at the ballot box. Count me in that number.
Independent voters like me make many politicians lose sleep as well as their positions of authority.
Just when you assume that you have voters like myself under control --- surprise! I will cast my vote on election day for those who have my best interests at heart.
I will not simply hand over my power in blind trust.
Make your assumptions about me as an independent California voter while you continue to narrowly 'poll' within your target demographic. You are just stroking yourself with delusions.
The election of 2012 is not about you, your agenda, and your friends whom you owe favors to. It's about me, my family, my community, my state and MY VOTE.
