I am making a puplic announcement. If a certain person wins the nomination from his party and he ,God forbid , wins the Presidential election , I am leaving the country. I am not politically inclined. I'm interested, reasonably informed and always vote ,using the recommendations from the League of Women Voters as a guide. But I am scared. It's a case of culture shock. I can't find any common ground with the front runner, his supporters and me. I feel threatened by the rhetoric that I hear and the positive reaction the frontrunner gets from his supporters. It's not anything I agree with. Am I out of focus. Did I miss something when he gets such supports. Am I on a different path. I thought that I was pretty average, not radical. I'm middle of the road about a lot of issues, pretty liberal about many other things. I should be represented by someone who represents me, that is what makes me so scared. There might be more of "them", than of the "me's".

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
