But would you ever vote for anything else? I mean, you ARE the most partisan person in FYM.

Why would you leave?

Contrary to what many may think, I do think outside of the box.

I'm sure that happens. We just never see that side of you in FYM.

I suppose at first because I was raised in a conservative family and church environment.

And I don't see any advantages changing.

I lived in Orange County, CA. It is overwhelmingly GOP.

All of my political representatives, are GOP. Except U S Senators.

Whoever wins the GOP primary - will win in general election. I have never had a Dem local representative.

CA is a closed primary state.

One can only vote for the party candidate of the party they are registered.

In open seat primaries there are several GOP candidates. Sometimes we can get the social moderate elected.

If I were to register Dem I would be voting in primaries for the sure general election loser.

In general elections I tend to often vote for the Democratic candidate these days. I do not expect to vote for the GOP Pres candidate in Nov 08.

I left the Democratic party. Assume you will still mostly be voting for Republicans and I'll still mostly be voting for Democrats. I would guess we left our respective parties for similar reasons but vastly different particulars.

I think you live in a part of CA that most of your elected officials would be Democrats.


Am I correct?

I think that is fair to say.

AEON I know this has been addressed by others, but I have to ask anyway...do you honestly think that The Left (whoever that is is debatable I suppose - I'm pretty certain there are folks you'd label left that I'd call moderate/centrist, or even conservative) doesn't care about soldiers? That's what the left does, we care about people. That's why we support things like free health care and education etc. We care, and we don't want to see the little guy screwed. So of course we care about soldiers. We DON'T WANT to see you guys killed, especially in a war we think isn't necessary. And we cared about soldiers who got killed in Clinton's various ventures during his time in office (Somalia, Bosnia, etc). Certainly the spin doctors for the Dems wouldn't bring attention to things that went on, just as Bush's minions aren't telling us the whole story now. But they're not the left or right, they're just party PR guys.

But trust me, we care. When you see some bozo with a "Fuck the Troops" sign consider that they're likely just waving it to get attention - and it works. And yes they make the anti-war crowd look dirty, but view them for the fringe nuts that they are. People really can be anti-war without being anti-soldier.

I bought a round for a group of soldiers last night before the game.

I wish I could remember feeling that young again when I put on the uniform. They are such kids, it kills me inside thinking that they could be gone.

They attended a good game for the sox.

The fourth estate in action
Quote:
Members of the Minnesota congressional delegation have been working with the Minnesota National Guard to correct what they consider an inequity.

The state’s U.S. senators, Norm Coleman and Amy Klobuchar, announced Monday they had received word from Army Secretary Pete Geren that he was attempting to fix the problem.

“Many of these soldiers have put their education on hold in order to serve our nation, and awarding these benefits is the least we can do for them when they return,” Coleman said.

Geren told the senators he was recommending that the Army Board of Corrections, which has the authority to award the benefits, expedite the review process so the soldiers could get their benefits in time to enroll for spring semester. Usually, each soldier would each have to file a personal appeal, but Geren requested the Army review them as one group.
