A republican running for state representative just came to my door. [View all]

I am surprised the peace sign and the "I am the 99%" sticker on my garage door did not scare him away.
He was polite, and I was as well (feeling pretty mature of myself for my 50 years!). I told him we were happy with what we get for what we pay in taxes. Our community would benefit from better jobs, but that is true most everywhere these days. I did bring up that it is a shame so many young people are drowning in student debt. I mentioned my son in the Peace Corps and how it would be nice if he could get a break on his loans.
Afterward I thought maybe I should have been more...outspoken? But, on the whole I am happy with myself for being polite. And I do give him some respect as he is the first person running for office I have ever had come to the door in 22 years of living here.
But, I still won't vote for him.
