Welcome back to Who Gets your Vote? !! Each Tuesday I will be highlighting at least one reader opinion about the upcoming election. On election day, I will answer these very same questions myself! I am so looking forward to the next few weeks and I hope you are too! Would you like to participate? Just email me (andrea at lilkidthings dot com) with the subject line VOTE and include your answers to the below questions. The point of this series is to get real people to answer real questions about this election. We aren’t all the same and we don’t vote the same. I happen to think that is ok and welcome opinions that are different than my own. I’d love to see some healthy discussion in the comments as the weeks pass!

For those of you who think no one is still undecided, think again. This week, we hear from Hillary Chybinsky who describes her disappointment with the current political picture. And even though I do know who I am going to vote for, I share a lot of her sentiments. Check out what she has to say below! And as always, feel free to comment. But remember to be respectful. I know politics can get people excited, but hateful comments WILL be deleted.

Do you affiliate yourself with a party? Which one?  I am not registered with any political party.  That was a conscious decision on my part.

Do you know who you will vote for in the Presidential Election yet?/Who? I don’t know yet.  To be truthful, I’m not overjoyed with either candidate.

Why did you choose this person / or why are you still undecided?  They both bring good ideas and plans to the table. Sadly, they both bring more baggage and bad ideas than good.

Are you a parent?  Yes, I have 2 boys.

Why do you think your candidate is the best choice for parents? If undecided – what issues are you concerned about as a parent?   As a parent, I am concerned with the economy and education.  Both are in a seriously sad state that need to change SOON.

Do you feel like your candidate is misunderstood? Why? I believe BOTH candidates are mis-understood.  That has become the nature of politics.  It isn’t about one person – it’s not even about one party anymore.  It’s about money and lobbying.  That healthcare bill, while it contained some really great points and much needed relief – it has so much “pork” tacked onto it on order for it to get passed the average American doesn’t have any idea.

If you could sum up your candidate in 3 words, what would they be? / OR if undecided – what 3 words would sum up the perfect candidate for you? Honest, Ethical, Intelligent.  My perfect candidate would put their own aspirations for fame and fortune aside and look to what was the intention when this system was established.  A congress person was not a full time job.  Politics shouldn’t be about raising money – politics should be about striving to do the best for most.

Thank you for sharing your honest opinions Hillary!
