It seems that all the campaigns this year have gone negative very fast. Also it seems like (and for the most part) every other commercial on TV is a political ad. Some are good (non-negitive) ad's and most are bad (negative) ad's.
Even candidates that up until now have run a mostly non-negitive campaign have turned to running negative ad's against there opponent. I would much rather hear about what you can do then what your opponent can not do.
I think on Friday of this week, or Monday of next week I will make the trek out to Bernalillo, NM so I can do early votting. I must say that my only grip about the rest of Corrales getting annexed in Sandoval County last year. I now have to drive all the way out to Bernalillo (about 15 miles from my office) to do early voting & stuff instead of going to downtown Albuquerque (about 3 miles from my office) to take care of that stuff.

I love that I am all over the board in respects to the political party system. Really I am right down the middle, with 4 republican and 5 democrat candidates and really one of the democrat candidate's is cus the Gov and Lt. Gov are a slate vote. Now I know I am going to take shit from some of my family for some of these candidates, but really, I do not give a shit. I am my own person (I know, can you believe it?) and as such I will vote how I feel.
So now that I have that figured out, time for dinner.
