    Not only are independents cool, but they enjoy greater access to sex, too?

I would prefer an "at large" election, where everyone is on the same primary ballot, and the two candidates who get the most votes will go to the regular election.
    Hey Beefheart.

    I'm aware that not all states recognize the "Independent Party." Is there a "Peace and Freedom Party" in every state ? Is the "Constitutional Party" recognized in every state ?

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
    Albert Einstein

    So, to vote over and over again for one of the major parties, expecting them to be competent, when clearly both seem to be both corrupt and incompetent is...

    I choose to not affiliate with a party because, IMO, both parties have long abandoned anything other than it's own party structure as its concern long ago, and I don't want either party even pointing to me as a number on a list and claiming that they have my support when in fact they do not.
    Does that prevent you from voting in the primaries?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    In my current state, yes, it does prevent me from voting in primaries. I put a lot of thought into it, and the trade-off is acceptable to me. Not perfect, but better to me in a relative sense.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    How the hell should I know?

    I'm too independent to independently determine the independence of independents.

    Of course they think that they are cool.

    Everyone on this planet thinks that they are the coolest critter in the universe until enough people point out how totally un-cool they are.

    They think that they are cool, but actually they're right pillocks.




    It's an extremely common misconception.




    BTW: Anyone who's really Independent doesn't even have to say that they're Independent, because they show it by their actions.
