Today I attended the Nevada Caucus. I wrote before that I would write about my experience at the caucus. Well, the caucus was a very dull affair. No one ran against Obama, so no excitement about whom to vote for. Just Obama. I attended the Nevada caucus in 2008. Now, that was exciting. First black man to run for President, and a woman, Hillary Clinton. I voted for Hillary, but she lost to Obama by 2 votes in my precinct.
I had to fill out a form stating that I am a Obama supporter. I know I complain about Obama all the time, but looking at what the Republicans have, I decided Obama is the lesser of two evils.
There were 55 people who attended the caucus. A very small number. My precinct had only four people attend. There was a positive to this small number. All the people who attended the caucus get to sit in on the Nevada convention on January 24. We get a chance to tell the Democratic delegation what gets put on the Democratic agenda. I will bring up my disappointment with the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). I will try to convince everyone to do away with both these terrible laws. I don’t know if I’ll do any good, but if I don’t try, I can’t complain.
So I’m glad I attended the caucus, and I look forward to attending the Nevada Convention. I’m sure the convention will be a lot more exciting.
