As you may know already, although I greatly enjoy "punditing" about American presidential politics and elections, I've never voted in American Elections even though I do have a legal right. There are two major reasons for this.
- Having voted with my feet to live in Israel in the summer of 1970, just before what could have been my first chance to vote (at that time you needed to be 21) I've always felt that one should only vote in elections of the country one resides permanently.
- Considering the twists and turns from election platform to actual policy all Presidents make and the consistently anti-Israel policy/ideology of the State Department, I just don't trust any candidate with my vote. It doesn't matter who wins, the policies will never be what I want from America.
