Channeling my inner Donald Trump this morning, I am agreeing with his sentiment that voters get a raw deal in electing a president.
Take me for example: As a lifelong registered Republican, I was so angry over Romney’s inability to close the deal in 2012, angrier at the idiots who ran the RNC, that I undid my R status and became one of the giant pool of Unaffiliated.
In New York that means you can NOT vote during either party primary, so in essence, the millions of us who chose not to align with one party are flat out of luck today. That doesn’t seem fair to me.
There are plenty of states where one can be registered as an Independent, with the ability then to vote in whichever primary you choose. That seems right to me, but New York forbids that. Isn’t that like banning the democratic system?
All that said, I’m still not ready to kiss and make up with the dear GOP. They seriously fall flat on so many levels, the worst is the Romney-Jeb! push to destroy Trump.
Am I sorry I can’t vote today? Yes. But I know at least one of my kids is pulling the correct lever today!
My predict-o-glass tells me Bernie will lose big time today, for the very reason that Independents can not vote for him and as he has stated publicly, the Independents are a huge part of his voter base. Oh, and yes, his message stinks.
PS: Cruz will find out what New York Values are really all about. 🙂 Adios Ted.
