Hmmmmm...politics, my most favorite subject..NOT~!
Unfortunately Boss Man one must register as a Democrat or a Republican, it's a necessary evil, otherwise you really don't have a voice in choosing the candidates who eventually run for office. In most states you cannot participate in primaries as an independent, unaffiliated voter. Regardless of party affiliation, the saddest part of the political system is the lack of facts, or should I say the flagrant disregard for truths by BOTH main parties. The majority of "voters" really don't have any clue to what is truly happening in our government, or in the world........it's scary
I don't profess to understand it all - but I do know that I do not believe everything that is written and certainly not what each candidate says about the other. We need less government and our political leaders need to abide by the same rules they impose on the rest of us - how can they possibly understand when they themselves are exempt from so much. And it seems getting re-elected is more important than doing the right thing
