36. Rules or Constitution?
Please let me know when the voting rights given to all Americans were revised to say that they can only be used if in concert with
'rules' adopted by political parties. Someone forgot to send me that memo. I noticed that Michigan must not have gotten that memo, either, because their Governor signed a bill to allow their primary to move. Funny - no one seems to be taking away their right to sit at the table with the big kids.

No vote? Don't come here anymore with your big hands open for our money. Get your money from your friends the Rove-publicans. They couldn't have bought better publicity for their party than the cannabalistic act you just pulled on us.

Play by the rules? This isn't a game. Either we have a Constitution or we don't. Which is it - rule by law, or rule by Party Hack? What a great example we set for anyone else in the world looking to see what 'freedom' means. What's next - we all have to wear veils when we go vote, or else Party Hacks get to beat us up?

See you around the voting booth when I vote for an Independent, and take as many of my other ex-Dem friends and coworkers with me as I can. You're just sooooooooooooo 'fair'. Can't wait till some other state wants something from Florida. Answer won't be 'no', it'll be 'HAIL' NO....
