Yikes. I just turned to President ___ [counselor in the LDS Stake Presidency] and CJ and gave them an earful about common core misinformation. I don't agree with this party anymore.I tried to warn her. Actually, she's voted with me a few times, more so more recently than in the past when she made a point of canceling out my vote. And as a school teacher, she doesn't need me to tell her the other party is nuts. The worst of it is the Republican Caucuses are likely to go on late into the evening and get hotter as they go. No, the actual worst is that the caucus system imposed on us by a Republican majority in the State Legislature is for party control to suppress the vote as it is difficult for many to get out within the restricted hours and for some to have the ID required if they don't drive or have the ability or patience to jump through the other hoops. Aargh!
The best joke of our evening was pointed out by my daughter on the ballot:
Who the heck is Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente? And doesn't be belong with Trump's World Wide Wrestling entourage? And why does he need to state his first name twice?
Later, same evening. . . .
My wife got home. She reported that the dark-side party wasn't really as busy as usual.
And my daughter reminded me of the other lady who came up to her with a ballot and asked, "Why are there only Democratic names on this?" My daughter replied, "I think you might be at the wrong caucus." The lady shrugged her shoulders and left.
