In 1972 I voted for my first President Tricky Dick Nixon! By 2004 I started voting for independent candidates as a form of protest. In 1939 less than 20% of the voters were registered independents while today over 40% register themselves as such. There are more independents than either Democrats or Republicans!
And yet you can count on one hand the number of senators or congress people who are classified as independents. Bernie Sanders aside most of us are moderate, less partisan folks which means that what is left in the Democrat and Republican parties are the extreme partisan dregs with Bolshevik Bernie at one end and Fascist Trump at the other!
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
