Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
We're 20 years behind most of Europe and Canada socially, so center-right far as that goes. Economics, well, income inequality has soared with little to no safety net, so i have to go with far right.
Why would you write your congressman to demand higher taxes? You can just pay more voluntarily.
Why would you write your congressman to demand less services? All you have to do is decline to receive those services.
Lots of people find reason to write their congressman to lower their tax bill or to receive some type of government service. Consistent deficits and a growing national debt is the cost of democracy. It looks weird but it is superior to tyranny. A well intentioned tyrant could wipe out the national debt with 10-20 years. With democracy things will continue to go this way. It's FU but not FUBAR.
