I voted for the first time in 2008.  My vote was for then candidate Barack Obama.  I did not vote for Barack Obama, I voted for his plataform, which is nothing more than his ideas put into legislative proposals that would end up being approved by Congress.  I was excited to vote a fundamental change in how things were done in D.C., to vote for ideas that would finally enact the progressive agenda our nation needs.  Now in 2010, I just can't vote for either party.
