I Changed Parties
Political parties, that is. That's right, I, a sworn and swearin'
independent my entire voting life, changed parties today. Why? Well, that
is the purpose of this page …
A couple of months ago, I was reading some editorials (some in the Utne
Reader) about the fact that liberals are so staunch about debate, seeing
both sides of an issue, and discussion in general that we don't exhibit any
clear messages or directions. Your conservatives wave this morality banner
(even though morality doesn't always play in their politics)… but
it is something that people identify with.
At least, this seems to be the only excuse for the high public support for
the Bush Regime.
But I've been an independent so long stating that I'm tired of a two-party
system that has failed me-- I'm making a statement here! Hey, listen up,
I'm making a statement. Is this thing on? Oh come on, does anybody care?
So, I'm getting practical in my politics.
Sure there are issues to defend and all, but right now, but just voting for
a statement that nobody pays any attention is just throwing out my vote. I
can't afford that any more. With a half-billion dollar war chest, we need
to decide on a candidate, and soon. So I'm now a Democrat, and now I get to
have a say in deciding who is going to help overthrow our current regime.
