A Fascinating Look at the Independent in Politics

Marcia Ford has written thorough and thoughtful book for anyone interested in today's politics and the mindset of the independent voter.

As she writes in the opening pages of this well-done book, "The truth is, I am every partisan politician's worst nightmare--a registered independent. Wildly unpredictable in my voting habits over the last three decades and more, I have cast ballots for Democrats, Republicans, independents, and assorted loose cannons. I have also cast ballots against Democrats, Republicans, independents, and assorted loose cannons. And I have cast no ballot at all in those years when political ennui overtook me, when voting for the lesser of two evils appeared to be more evil than not at all. In those years, I intentionally avoided the evil of two lesser." (page xvii)

Get this book because her writing, research and information are worth the time and effort to read it. As Ford concludes, "My involvement with the independent voter movement has given me great hope for the future of this country, hope I didn't have before." (page 188) I recommend this title.
