    The last member of the Federalist Party in KY.

    The Whigs do not appeal to me.

    I woulda' joined the Prohibition Party, but no one would offer a toast for joining!

    And I do think I have a little too much awareness to join the 'Know-Nothing' Party, although I know several individuals, about half of whom are kinfolk, who should feel right at home, there.

    Reg Rep, the only times I haven't voted a straight Republican (in my part of California to vote Democrat is to vote for the Pelosi wing of that party) ticket is when I voted American Independent back in the day.

    I'm non-affiliated and vote the party I feel is best for the time. To everything there is a season and this is the season to be liberal.

    I voted Reagan and Bush their first terms because I felt it was the season. I also voted for Ross Perot but that was in my drinking/drug day...

    I believe I can say: Life-long Democrat until 2008. I believe I am through with the democrats, they have strayed too far from any semblance of anything Christian to deserve my support.

    I listen a little, but my work schedule now makes it difficult.

    I find that the Word of God is has been sufficient to persuade me to see things differently. As you have said, it is impossible to live and vote the way that corresponds with the Bible and support the socialist, baby-killing, sodomite-loving candidates that are so pervasive in the Democratic Party.

    Registered Republican except for the three times in the last ten Presidential elections I have voted for the Democrat. I plan on becoming an independent after this election. The only problem with that is the closed primaries in Kentucky.

    Alabama does not require part registration. I don't favour either branch of America's one party system. I try to vote for the best candidate. In 96 and 00 I did not vote because I wasn't sure how to do it and put it off till too late. In 04 I voted for the Constitution Party.

    I don't remember how I voted in 92, probably held my nose and voted for Bush because I had swallowed the 'lesser of two evils' line. In 88 I know I voted Bush for that reason, even though I have never like a Bush.

    The last time I voted whole-heartedly was for Reagan in 80 and 84. I also wrote in Reagan in 76.

    So my presidential voting history would be.

    Republican - 4 times
    Constitution Party - 1 time
    Write in - 1 time
    Not voting - 2 times

    I have to mark and post my absentee ballot before midnight tomorrow night. I don't know what I am going to do. I lean towards Baldwin, but can't hionestly imagine him being my president.

    BTW, I have always loved politics. In 68 I would have voted for Wallace, I even worked in his campaign, but I was only 13. In 72 I would have voted for Wallace in the primary, but after he was shot I would have voted for Nixon.

    I used to be a registered Republican, but switched to Democrat. Why? Because my state is so heavily registered Democrat that the real election, especially the local elections are in the primary.

    You are saying that you switched from Republican to Democrat...

    ...because you wanted to be with the party that wins in your State?

    If a Democrat is going to win all the local elections the primary functions as the election. It was that way in Alabama for a LONG time.

    To register as a Democrat in a state like that makes sense. It does not stop you from voting for a Republican in the general election.

    We don't have to register with a particular party over here. It may surprise some of you to learn that I usually vote Conservative.

    On the local level I have voted for many Democrats, However on the State Level I have voted Dem very rarely. On the national level I have always voted Republican sense Gerald Ford.

    Your vote for Bush the First twice and Bush the Second twice hints at a liberal slant on things.

    Registered republican, and normally vote almost all republican, sometimes we vote domocrate for state or local elcetions, but this year the democrate is not suitable for anything, running for the senate and not even a citizen of this state.
