Man, we've got to get better about keeping up with this feature.
"I would not want to belong to any club that would accept me as a member."
- Groucho Marx
Dawn over at Temple of Mut explaining why she went (I)ndie.
Actually registering to be a non-partisan voter was very liberating. I asked myself if this were a company I worked at and I saw the kinds of back room deals and blatant disregard for the workers voices to be heard would I stay. I said “probably not”. If this were a club I belonged to and I saw the intolerance for the other club members and even incidents of sabotage of those members would I stay a member of that club? Again,“No way”. So why do I stay a member of a political party that is in fact doing these things to its members? Well, I then had my answer, “I am not!”.
We're still registered (R)s but Dawn could probably tell us enough hair-raising stories to make us change our mind. Besides, here in California, it's becoming more and more a case of (Y) bother.
