  •  Funny but sad story (0+ / 0-)

    My parents were registered Liberals. I think they'd made that decision in the late 40’s, when the Liberal Party was the same kind of union-fueled Force To Be Reckoned With that WFP is right now. But by the time I was old enough to have a political mind of my own, it was a sad shadow of its former self.

    When I came of age, I registered as a Democrat, and then began a campaign to get my folks to realize that all their precious registration was doing for them was closing them out of voting in primaries. And as I'm sure you know, most of the action in NYC elections is during the primaries. I think they finally registered as Democrats when they moved to FL. No Liberal Party there.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
