I've been voting since I was 18 years old. I'm Democrat, but I've crossed party lines. . . especially for local voting.
Interestingly, I've been to four Republican Party functions (the local Young Republicans) and one Conservative Party function. Never been to any Democratic Party function. Understand that my wife and I used to have a cabaret group called "The Act". The local Young Republicans (or whatever they were called) used to hire us as their entertainment. There were three of us. All of use were registered democrats at the time. . . but we never let on!
:chuckle Used to bust on and roast the local yokals who were running for public office during these parties. All in good fun, of course!
And everyone all did have fun!
Heck!! We must have done something good and entertaining! "The Act" was invited back for 4 times!
The reason we attended a local conservative party function was because of an invite by a republican friend of ours. It was free dinner!
Manytimes I chuckle to myself when members of this board call me "liberal"! Honestly, I'm active to no party. . . and have only gone to republican or conservative party functions!
But I am a registered Democrat. . . and I really wish there were more strong parties to choose from. I truly believe that lack of political party choice is a weakness for our country.
Don't think I need to tell you who I'm NOT voting for in the 2004 Presidential elections, though.
