... for the first time, when I joined RedStateEclectic seven years ago, at once sensing, like her many voters today, what a wonderful and upright person Laura is; and ever since I have kept voting for (= supporting) her, again and again.
Laura has a convincing personality - to me, that makes the difference, at the end of the day.
Go to Laura Ebke's always interesting facebook page to share "I Voted for Laura Ebke"
Principled, yet humane, reasonable, and never over the top, Laura's political views and fair comportment are such that you will find yourself well-understood and well-represented by her, even if not in concurrence on every conceivable issue.
At the time, when I joined RedStateEclectic, there were other blogs closer to the positions I then held. It was Laura Ebke's convincing personality - the whole of her and her life - that attracted me to her as a human being as well as a politically active person.
It was a good choice. I have learned so much that is valuable from her.
