I'm a registered Democrat. Suprised?

I've always voted for Rudy, though.


Long Live Bubba (clinton that is),

I am "registered" as a Republican due to Alabama's primary system, but I do not have a membership in the Repubican Party. I will be voting for a Democrat for State Treasurer in November.

No...a Republican Kennedy is blasphemy.

Honestly? Having seen the nature of some New England Republicans, I certainly can understand this. Having seen Midwestern, Western, and Southern Republicans, though, I can say that I'd never vote for Republicans in these regions.

Melon:

If you had seen the choices we had in the Republican and Democratic primaries in this state on Tuesday, you may have actually favored one or two of the Republican choices over anyone else.

There is the Democratic incumbant, who not only strongly supports the death penalyt but proposes expanding it to repeat child sex offenders; constantly campaigns on the platform of "an education lottery;" recently said "if God meant for boys to wear earrings, he would have made them that way," and supports the Ten Commandments being posted in public schools;

His main Democratic opponent, who once ran on the campaign slogan "The Conservative Choice;"

An unknown Democrat who had his name listed on the ballot as "Rodeo Clown;"

Another Democratic candidate, who serves on the Board of Pardons and Paroles after being nominated by a Republican governor, controversial because she wante to give early parole to 3 rapists, because after 20 years, she doubts the victim's soworn testimony and thus did not notify her of the early parole hearing (she ran as a Democrat because the Republicans wouldn't give her enought support, but then neither would the Democrats);

A Republican U.S. Congressman who wants to lower and/or eliminate taxes on the poor and refor our antiquated, post-Reconstruction state cnostitution, but is an outsider to state politics;

A Republican Lieutenant Governor who served as a Clinton-Gore delegate to the 1992 and 1996 Democratic Conventions; successfully pushed legislation through the state Senate in 2000 to raise teacher pay to the national average; supports a full rewrite of the state Constitution via a citizen-based constitutional convention; and campaigned successfully against the Governor's "education lottery" in 1999;

Or, a fringe, religious right Republican candidate, son of a former fringe, religious right Republican governor, who opposes any form of state constitution reform and sees it as an attempt to raise taxes (which it isn't), legalize gambling (which it would likely make MORE difficult to legalize), and remove God (he must have a lot of faith in state powers).

I don't know, but you might have favored the Lieutenant Governor or the Congressman on this one, if you were to vote on issues over party; just my guess.

Interesting. I never knew that women were born with earrings.

Well, U2Bama, you got me on this one. I would have voted Republican. Just as I have somewhat of an admiration of New England Republicans, I have somewhat a disgust for Southern Democrats.

For historical perspective, back in the 1850s-60s, the liberal party (for its day, mind you) was the Republican Party, with the conservative party being the Democratic Party. Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, would be a modern Democrat. Around 1870, for some reason, the liberals abandoned the Republican Party and flooded into the Democratic Party, with northern conservatives retreating into the Republican Party. Southern conservatives remained in the Democratic Party, until the Democratic Party took on civil rights issues in the 1960s, where most slowly defected to the Republican Party for the next two to three decades. Still, though, it is hard for everything to change I guess.

Speedracer:

I think I saw that same conlcusion in the "Letters to the Editor" of the Newspaper for several weeks after the Guv's comment. It definitely got him some attention.

Melon:

You are 100% correct on the historical perspective. Alabama is traditionally a "one party" (Democratic) state, so they have pretty much taken the liberty to do/say whatever they surmise will win the local points. And Alabama is a state where "Southern Democrats," in the old sense, still exist. Republicans are new-comers when it comes to significance here, although they are increasingly successful. I will say that most of the "religious right" candidates run as Republicans in this state, although a current Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate shows his family praying at the dinner table on EVERY campaign ad he runs on TV.

Personally, I voted for the U.S. Congressman, although I am now mixed about it (but he won the primary). The "Conservative Choice" Democratic candidate (who lost) renounced the state Demo party on primary night and will likely endorse the Republican. I feel that the Lt. Governor would have had a bit more experience at the state level to get things done, but the very reason I voted for the Congressman is because I wanted "true" change in Montgomery.

although bama made his post to show how republicans are soooo better than democrats , he has a point, although i don't think this was his intent. before voting, get to know things about the candidates. i know so many people who blindly vote *ahem*dad*ahem* for a certain party or something, knowing jack about their views or background.

oh, and i hate those who don't vote then gripe about who gets elected into office (of any kind, i'm even talking about town mayor). it's like, you didn't vote, so why do you have the right to complain? you should've voted against him when you had the chance. now you have to wait another 2-4 years.

My voting history includes votes for Republicans, Democrats, Independents and Greens. Probably at heart I am a socialist.
