Watching Paint Get Old & Moldy


Being a Republican is easy, just watch Fox News.
Being a Democrat is easy, just watch MSNBC or even CNN.
Being Independent NOT easy!  NEWSY is unbiased but not deep enough.

Being Independent does require you to watch news networks you don’t like.
However, being Independent does not require you to watch national conventions.
I watched exactly zero minutes of the Democratic Convention last week.
I will watch exactly zero minutes of the Republican Convention this week.

Neither has any intellectual substance.
Does anybody NOT already know how they’re going to vote?
The purpose of conventions is not to educate but to motivate you – to actually vote.
I’d rather watch a timeshare sales presentation or watch paint get old and moldy . . .
