Politics is a touchy subject. For many, they refuse to talk about them in public, however, over the next several months we will be overloaded with commercials on TV, Radio, and the internet. Millions of folks will use their Political Science degree from Facebook University to share their analysis on who you should vote for and why.

The other day as I was driving home, I saw a young man walking down the sidewalk outside of my complex carrying an American Flag that was upside down. I'm assuming he was protesting something, but I didn't ask.

Who you vote for and why is your choice and while we might not always see eye to eye, I feel like as Montanans we should at least be respectful to each other and something tells me that might not be the case in the upcoming months.

I'm not here to sway you either way. What I am here to say is that I get it. I understand the frustration on both sides. Maybe you're one of those Montanans who has always voted for "your side" or you're one of those Montanans who even though you work hard, seem to struggle to make ends meet. Or maybe you're one of those Montanans who think, "Is this the best we can do?" regarding the Presidential nominees.

For most of my life, I've voted straight ticket. I won't be doing that this year. Like many other Montanans, I'm not a huge fan of my choices. As I mentioned, I'm not here to tell you who to vote for or judge you for the way you voted, but I will say that I think we should all do our research.

Spend a little time looking into the candidates and what they've done, not what they say or whatever your favorite news outlet tells you. Most of those running are spending millions of dollars on tearing down their opponent rather than sharing their plans for the future.

What is best for you? What is best for the state? What is best for the country? A D or an R after a name doesn't mean they'll be a great public servant and remember, their job is to serve us. Hold them accountable. Make sure they keep their word, if they don't or haven't, don't be afraid to share your voice at the ballot box.
