Libertarian's the elite? Have you all checked out the Political Parties in the Easy Voter Guide? Fred must have wrote the description for the Libertarian Party: "The Libertarian Party is your BEST choice for reasonable government. If you're socially tolerant and fiscally responsible, you're a Libertarian!" Kinda grandiose, dontcha think?
The Democratic debates Election Center 2008 - CNN.com are now just getting nasty and bitter. Hillary and Barack should take the high road. John Edwards was the forgotten candidate in this debate. He needs to do something radical to separate himself as the "working class" candidate before it is too late. And it might be too late as we speak!
Voting Confusion? I don't know if it was by design, but the The American Independent Party - The Fastest Growing Political Party In California has voters confused. People think they are registering Independent and this is listed as a choice. Seems innocuous enough. I was at the HCDCC headquarters when a couple wanted to register, and the woman said she was registered as a an Independent. Sure enough, she was told she was in fact an American Independent, a party started by George Wallace! She laughed and changed her affiliation of course. I just wonder how many others have been duped to register with a white supremacy party?
More Registered Democrats on your way! Bob Service, Robin and I were registering voters at the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration 'King is needed now more than ever'. It was great time and we registered new Democratic voters! It was the last day that the HCDCC could register voters for this election. Many other HCDCC volunteers were registering voters all over the Eureka/Arcata area yesterday. I don't know what the final count was, but I will guess we will see 100 new Democrats just from yesterday.
Local Republicans Throw up the white flag? I don't know the last time I have heard of the Republicans doing a registration drive. Have they given up locally?
