    Pretty impressive the way you managed to send that smarmy smile with only the typed word. And what exactly is it that sounds so solidly republican?

    Your post was perfectly Tea Party. You will vote Republican, I'm certain.

Last time we got stuck with McCain, this time we may get another wishy-washy, "safe" and "electable" candidate. I don't want electable, I want someone with the backbone to get into DC and fix what's broken. Do I bite my tongue and change my registration, or are there other options?

    Arizona evidently used to have an open primary process, but they changed the name of the election to a "Presidential Preference Election" that only lets party members vote.
    Change your party affiliation. It's not going to hurt anything.

    Just as we know that you will vote Democratic. That's nothing to be proud of.

    I changed from D to R in 1989, when David Dinkins took the NYC mayoral nomination from Ed Koch, who had been a very effective mayor, probably the best that could be hoped for out of the Democratic machine in NY. Dinkins was NYC's Obama, an utterly clueless man whose mandate, to be the first black mayor of the city, was filled the minute he took the oath of office, and whose tenure was a serious of gaffes, screw-ups and failures on a scale never before seen in NYC government. This result would have been clearly obvious to anyone who followed Dinkins' tenure as Manhattan Borough President, but NYC liberals have a habit of missing the obvious, and I felt that I no longer had any reason to be part of their party. Since then, I've managed to vote in a few Republican primaries, but mostly, it's just been about not being a Democrat. This time around, however, depending on where you live, you may have an opportunity to make a difference. I say make the change.

    Care to place any bets on my vote last election?

    BTW the point of the Tea Party is to reform the Republican party back to it's conservative roots, not just follow the establishment bouncing ball.

    I would have guessed you voted for McCain, unless you're referring to the congressional elections, in which case I'd still assume you voted Republican.

    If I'm wrong I'll be admit to admit that I'm wrong and I'd be curious to know who you voted for, why you voted for them, and how your ideas have evolved over time.

    When was the last time you saw me posting something positive or supportive about the democratic party?

    I don't support those dirty corporatist shills

    Oh, I forgot. You consider them to the right of you.

    Okay, which far left fringe party will get your vote this time around?

    After watching the area polls and determining that McCain had a solid victory in my area, I checked the Libertarian candidate, not because I agree with all Libertarian ideals, but as a small show of support for alternatives to our two party joke. If it would have been closer, I would have voted McCain only in an attempt to cost Obama votes, not because I liked McCain that much either.
