Getting Unpolitical with Politics

NY State Senator Roy McDonald

I came across this quote today from NY State Senator Roy McDonald and had to share. Even if you do not agree with him on the issue that finally caused him to speak up, I think a lot of people will agree with the sentiment here:

“You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn’t black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing,” McDonald, 64, told reporters.

“You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, f— it, I don’t care what you think. I’m trying to do the right thing.

“I’m tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I’m trying to do the right thing, and that’s where I’m going with this.”

This guy, in my humble opinion, should not just run for Congress, he should make a 2012 run a the Presidency. If this Republican has turned over a new leaf, left the party line (both party lines for that matter), and now speaks his own mind instead of his party’s talking points, I think he’d have a pretty good chance of getting elected by Americans who are also tired of Republican-Democrat politics. I mean, seriously, who wouldn’t elect a President who had the guts to say “Well, f— it, I don’t care what you think. I’m trying to do the right thing.”

If you would like to know the issue being voted on in the NY State Senate that prompted this from Sen McDonald, here’s the original article.  And now that you’ve gone and read the original article, how many of you reversed the opinion you had of him before clicking that link, simply because of the issue being discussed?  Leave some comments and let me know!

    Love it! If only everyone (on both sides) would take this attitude. Sigh…
