Here's a letter to the editor reflecting those thoughts.
It doesn't stretch the imagination too much to think there were Republicans who voted for a Democratic candidate because they thought he/she would be easier to beat come November or because they couldn't stand the thought of one or the other occupying the White House.
I've always wondered what exactly makes you a democrat or republican? When I graduated from high school I don't remember a membership card being issued; there's no secret hand shake. No one has ever asked me for dues. I've never had to go through an initiation. Hell, I've never even been hazed by one of these parties to gain admittance.
The only thing that makes you a member.... simply saying so.
So I went to the polls last week and simply said I'm a democrat. Someone want to prosecute me for that? If you are a pissed off lib who wants some retribution; send this post to Jennifer Brunner. I want a day in court to demonstrate the absolute joke our political party system is.
The fact is the two party political system in this country is a mockery of governance in and of itself. It's like Pepsi and Coke, they know they're going to get 48% of the market place. and the other guy gets 48% but they'll do whatever they can to keep a third party from stepping in on their oligopoly.
So today I'm a democrat, loud proud and sassy; deal with it.
