    •  overboard - (0+ / 0-)

      is in one breath saying you won't join the party, implying the party is weak, and then saying the party is 'bigger, faster, stronger' -  meh, if that's the case, join the party.

      •  Many people register as independent (0+ / 0-)

        but support Democratic candidates, including me up until 2008.  You can believe it is the best option and still have issues with the party.  Many of the Presidents supporters fall under that category and going "overboard" is rejecting them for no real reason.

        •  didn't reject anyone (0+ / 0-)

          but when the diary's topic is a rep attack against the party-as-a-whole, you might not respond that the party is weak or ignorant.

          i don't think registration really equals joining the party. it's more of a mindset - you agree with democratic policies so you support democrats. that's effectively joining the party. remember there are young, unregistered, democrats for instance - and those who support our politics overseas, etc. registering as an independent isn't a problem to me. coming on the site and bashing the party isn't the point of this org.

            criticizes the party here, including Kos, right?  I don't think your take on what the site is about is quite right, but this a silly thing to argue about about so adios.
