[Politics] Democrats Vs. Independents

Democrats Vs. Independents

On a Black talk radio show awhile back, I got some information that has stayed with me. I hear a guest say that voters should not register as Independents. He said that as a registered Independent, you would be ineligible to vote in either the Democratic or Republican primaries. He informed us that you would have to wait until the general elections to vote for whomever won in the primaries.

I have not heard any other discussions on the subject so I donít know differently and yes, I would like to register as an Independent.

Also during the show, as I remember, there was some talk about the two party composition of the Electoral College and rules for political debates not allowing a third party candidate.

All I know about the Electoral College is that my vote doesnít really count in a Presidential Election whether Iím voting Democratic, Republican or Independent and that is information of which I have first hand knowledge.

Fighting for the dignity of my Ancestors,
BB

Just a thought: A clothing company had a commercial that said ďAn informed consumers is our best customer.Ē
