20. life long affiliation?
Edited on Mon Oct-18-04 02:52 PM by humanbeing
Not all states required registration with a party affiliation, first of all. I live in WA and we only recently passed legislation to change our primaries to where you may only vote for one party, and that may get reversed.

Second, I don't believe that when you declare a party that it gets tattooed onto your forehead, does it? So you can change any time you want.

So being 'Independent' is all well and good, but let's not make the assumption that all of us here don't 'make decisions with our minds and heart', that's rather condescending.
