You prefer WHAT party?!

Got my official mail-in ballot last week and decided that I better take a few moments today and give it a serious look-over.

Un-Hun.

I opened up the envelope and saw that we have 36 candidates running for state governor.

Yes, you saw correctly – THIRTY-SIX people!

But that in and of itself isn’t the only little caveat that has me raising my hairy, untouched, pandemic eyebrows; it’s the fact that these candidates belong to parties that I never heard of!

We’ve got one who prefers the “Stand-up America party”, another one who prefers the “Socialist workers party”, one who likes the “Propertarianist party”, (yeah, I had to Google this one myself just to pronounce it), one who’s affiliated with the “American patriot party”; another one who prefers the “Cascadia labour party”, and another one who affiliates with the “New-liberty party”.

The candidates who have listed themselves as preferring the “Trump republican party” are pretty easy to understand.
And I guess I get those who have identified with the “Pre-2016 republican party”. But what, pray tell, is a “Fifth republican party”? Did I sleep through the first four republican parties?
One of the candidates listed himself as preferring the “Fifth republican party”.

Damn!

Guess I’m gonna be busy today.

Hopefully, you’re all staying safe and sane during these challenging times, People!

I’ll catch ya the next time, looking at life from my shoes.

At the encouragement of family and friends, who followed my silliness on my FB page, I started this blog a few years ago. I try to keep my topics as humorous as possible (because I believe "LIFE" is pretty serious these days), but will, on occasion write about more solemn subjects. I sincerely appreciate all who take the time and effort to read and make comments and am truly humbled when people actually "like" what I write. I do not participate in the "Wordpress awards" because I feel "awarded" when individuals actually read me and comment, but sincerely appreciate all of you who have considered me "award worthy" and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  1. Well, I just looked up the Fifth Republican Party. It sounds as if it came over straight from France, but it was funded in Seattle by David Blomstrom, who is opposed to “Jewarchy”, among other things. Ang Kanye is asking Jay Z to be his VP. Good heavens! Of course, as Beth says, we are lucky to have a choice, even if some of them are a bit, um, wonky, maybe?

    If it’s any comfort, The Squire keeps getting mail from The Current Occupant. And he has to use his own stamp to return it. Talk about adding insult to injury!

    1. Hm!!! Who’d thunk it. Thanks for the info. (re: 5TH republican party) I think they’re trying to water down the playing field so that all of us are confused and just don’t vote! (Maybe I’ll vote 4 Kanye as our Governor!!!) Just teasing! ;>)
