Declaration of Independence

I am and have been for many years a registered independent. I have experienced both parties. I have been a Democrat — quite a flaming, liberal democrat. And I have been a Republican — quite a conservative Republican. In fact, I don’t even really like the party system. I would be in favor of a new law that says [candidates'] party affiliation cannot be on the ballot. Therefore, you would actually have to know who the person was and what you were voting for. That would make a big difference.
