47. No, talk about "party loyalty" makes me want to puke.
It conjures up shades of a certain authoritarian regime I'd rather not mention because of Godwin's Law. My loyalty is to America. THAT loyalty is why in a winner-take-all system I will still vote Democratic, since they're the lesser evil, and since a vote for a smaller, REAL left-wing liberal progressive party would in practice be a vote for the GOP. But in a parliamentary system, which I hope we will one day get, I would vote for Gravel or go Green in no time. Gravel is absolutely right in this statement, and that's a sad fucking state of affairs indeed:

"My libertarian views, as well as my strong stance against war, the military industrial complex and American imperialism, seem not to be tolerated by Democratic Party elites who are out of touch with the average American.

Hear, hear!
