The primaries are often ignored, but this is the opportunity that we, as voters, have to select the candidate we prefer from among the many choices. In November we will basically have two choices and one of them is bound to be a bad one.
This Indiana primary coming up in May is your chance to make sure that the Republican candidate is going to be a good one and hopefully a great one! Please make it part of your agenda to investigate the people running for office in your areas and certainly statewide. Get a ballot and vote in the primary elections!
How often have I heard someone say that "I am an independent and do not wish to be associated with one party?" Guess what? You can be as independent as you like and still contribute to the process by supporting your candidate NOW while he or she has a chance to get on the ballot. No one is going to tattoo an elephant on your bicep if you take a Republican ballot in the spring. What will matter is this; You will get a say in who is still there in November! You really do matter in the primaries. Think about it...

Evan Bayh is saying goodbye to the Senate. A JFK-style Democrat, he was one of the more moderate Democrats in the Senate and despite the language of his press release his decision is a blow to the Obama Administration for, as he says and I quote: "I am constantly reminded that if Washington, D.C., could be more like Indiana, Washington would be a better place."
Goodbye Senator, we will try to vote in someone who believes that statement with all of his heart and mind!
