Here Are Ten People so Choose a Party
Call your local Board of Elections to see if you have to officially register to be Republican just to say "I want Ron Paul up front." Here's a guy who not only says it like it is, but does it too. I'm sorry comrades, but when the record speaks for a politician count me in.
No King, no Big Heaven, no Royalty elite -- and I'm sick to death of war. A third choice. Just can't do it in this on-off world.
So anyway I contact the local Elections Board to find out if Coke or Pepsi won't let me say I like Dr. Pepper the best of all. Turns out around here (I'm in North Carolina) , even though it's a primary election (yeah, that's right - the first step up many of a democratic action no-one ever decides to actually DO), it's all up to the other guys to let another in. The parties themselves can say yes or no to letting unaffilitated, registered voters into primaries to vote.
And goody for us, they both said fine. At least that's the state I'm in.
