    Nothing worth doing comes easy. If you expect things to come easy to you than I wish you well in life. You might just very well need a miracle if that is your train of thought.

    Your condescension is palpable dude

    I never said that nor do I expect it

    Indeed. Nothing is no thing. If we measure all of life in terms of things acquired, we're using a rotten measure.

    Glad you like it. Seriously though, being conservative, I look at the GOP with wonder. It's a weird amalgam of the stubborn and the spineless. A real box of chocolates.

    Sorry to have to inform, but the southern segregationists never moved from D to R. If you check, for instance, all the signatories, both Senators and Representatives, of the Southern Manifesto, which was in opposition to the Warren Court landmark decision of Brown v Board, only one, one single of these major infamous Democrat signatories moved from being D to R. Many of these Democrats also either went on to sustain or attain high status in the Democrat Party.

    So you are just mistakenly continuing a myth.

    If you have, how many times.
    If you mean changing the party I'd vote for ... I voted for three different parties so far, since I'm allowed to vote. (We currently have five parties in the parliament in Germany). But it was never a 180 turn, ideologically.

    But then, I've always had greatest sympathies for one party and I guess it was and still is my default choice, unless there are special reasons to decide otherwise.

    When you say local, do you mean state or city/county?
