I learned a big lesson today ........
As I attempted to vote for our State Gov Seats today -
I realized that they were not an option for me ! very mad

It was aparently because I had registered as "non-partison" way back in 1984 ......and had to specifically ask for the "Party Ballot" to vote for anything other than "Non-Partison" !!very mad

This really pissed me off - so I phoned my County Elections Dept - they told me they had been told by the state "not to inform non-partison" voters they had the option to vote on a party ballot .........
I then phoned the State of Calif , and they told me something was wrong - and the local elections representatives were in fact trained to voluntarily inform "non-partison" voters that they had the option !
Something in Denmark is "Fishy" !!! very mad

If this government is forcing everyone to be "Party Affiliated"
Then we do not have a "Democracy " and voting is compromised dunno

Madisonian theorists would tell you that our founding fathers set up the system with the idea of faction against faction and the whole remains the same...It does work.
What also works is when parties run so closely towards the middle that they actually begin to overlap. Are there really any parties at all? Yep...two, the rest will disapate into the mud and mire that was set up for them. Always have, probably always will. doh
