    #1, you have TDS. Get help.

    #2, how many times have I mentioned on here that *I* left the Republican Party when they nominated John McCain as their POTUS contender in 2008? Dozens? The exodus from the GOP didn't begin with Trump. Again, get help.

    And hey, Trans? You might want to start paying attention to what's going on. See Bann's comment below:

    My sense is that people are sick of Party this and Party that. Blah blah blah, my Party is better than your Party! If you think the Republicans are better than the Democrats, you're part of the establishment that the rest of us are getting sick of.

    This is why the number of the regular voters not affiliated with a party exceeds that of either of the major parties.

    I used to think that being able to vote in the primaries gave me some say in the party, but it's pretty obvious I have none anymore.
    As such, there's really no point to register with a party.

    I'd register with a third party but none of them actually want to win - so why give them my support?

    Look for there to be a big push to get rid of the Big Two exclusivity. I'd like to see that in my lifetime.

    I would leave it myself, except that I want to be able to vote in the Primaries to vote for candidates I want to help elect - especially in Calvert County. As long as we have closed Primaries in MD, I see no other choice for me. I'm still sick of the National party, and my compromise with myself is I refuse to send my money to the PARTY. I will support individual candidates, but not the party itself.

    There are several candidates I support over here in Calvert in each election. It's true that the gerrymandering makes it difficult for the GOP members in Annapolis, but as long as we have Republican candidates - I want to be able to vote for them.

    Asking Trans to start paying attention is like asking a dog not to lick itself.

    I, too, left the GOP.

    Up to 66,545 members now.

    Their testimonials remind me of an AA meeting where people get up and share their story - what led them to alcoholism and what happened to make them finally want to get sober.
