Are you a Hillary fan? Do you want McCain? I do not divulge my votes, but found this interesting survey that asks 20 questions and then pairs you up with a candidate. Entertaining and informative, I thought.
Elections really matter to cops, because we know that in the end it is money that drives our profession. When that money is government money, you start to pay attention.
Also interesting to me is that cops tend to have quite conservative values (I am pretty conservative, and usually the liberal in the room at Roll Call), yet we are union employees. So who on earth are we to support? The ones that sound good to me on policy are usually against union benefits (which I need). And the opposite is also true: pro-union usually equals anti-gun, anti-death penalty, etc. Sigh.
This survey called me a “Populist-Leaning Conservative.” Same to you, dude…
Let me know your results!
