Citizen Spotlight: The Difference for Independents

Jonathan is an independent voter. We asked him why, and this is what he had to say. Jonathan and millions of other Americans deserve the same right to vote as every other citizen.

"I don't think that I know everything. So I know there's issues I'm wrong on, and I know there's issues I'm probably right on. It's the same thing for everyone. So I think being able to sit down with people that might disagree with you, have intelligent debate about the issues, and come to some kind of compromise or solution, that's the way democracy should work. I think a lot of independents realize that, but the people in the two major parties don't seem to; they just want their way or the highway. It's a good win if they can force the other person to do what they want without even talking about it. I'm very much against that."
