Question for All of Our Good Democrats on DVD Talk

Have you received you '2007 Grassroots Survey of Democratic Leaders' yet?

I received mine in the mail today.

There are 15 questions to answer.

Don't forget to check back page - that's where they ask you for money.

You rank the 10 most important issues to you.

There's also a question on withdrawal of troops from Iraq & other issues of national issue.

btw: The cover letter is signed by Howard Dean. I know you'll treasure that.

You're just bragging.

I gave money during the 2004 election cycle, so I have no doubt that I'll get somthing in the mail.

The Republicans sent me something before the 2004 election. I replied and sent a message back. I'm not expecting another mailer.

I wonder if the Democrats think of me as a Democrat or not?

The last one they sent me had a question about Terry Schiavo which really got my goat. Especially since the multiple choice survey questions don't give you any chance to express nuance on an issue. The choices (obviously paraphrased) are along the lines of:
A) I fully support the wisdom of George W. Bush and the Republican National Party.
B) Something a commie pinko, somewhat left of Karl Marx, would say.

I sent them a long letter giving them my nuanced opinion on the issue (I was a little mad for nuance) and asked to be removed from the mailing list.

I have gotten them from both parties, but I don't know that I have ever opened one.

The day you told me you were a Republican was the day you broke my heart.

Don't believe him. If he could, wendersfan would probably be a registered Whig.

Abstract art that doesn't represent anything shouldn't be considered art at all.

It's difficult to admire Ron Paul and still be considered a Democrat.

As a matter of fact - it's impossible.

They don't send me shit. I live in Utah, they know my vote doesn't matter.

Then again, John Edwards is going to have a fund raiser here in a couple weeks.

That I was a Democrat and now I'm a Republican, or that I broke Vin's heart?

My party affiliation is meaningless; it's determined solely by which party's primary I chose to vote in most recently.

In Utah, anybody can vote in the Democratic presidential primary, but you have to be a registered Republican to vote in their primary. So a lot of independents and dems register as Republican in order to vote in both.

Growing up in Kentucky there was no point in being anything but a Democrat, since the Democratic primaries were where all the action was. Things have changed considerably since then.

I voted for Jim Petro (or more accurately, against Ken Blackwell) for governor in the primary last year. In 2000 my wife voted for McCain (against Bush) so she was a Republican until 2004, when she voted for John Edwards. I think it was Edwards. Like I said, it's meaningless. My wife is to the left of anyone who regularly posts here.

ETA: other than Paul there's not a single candidate from either party I could see myself supporting. I actually like one thing or other from nearly every candidate in both races, but I disagree with most of them on almost everything.

Seems like a lot of paperwork to vote for people you have no interest in winning.

There's no paperwork involved. You go the the polling site, sign your name, and tell them in which primary you want to vote. The Midwest is a weird place in some aspects. Many states have more than one party.

Never underestimate wenders' ability to do extra work. He doesn't use a car either. That's a lot of work getting around. But that makes his carbon footprint very tiny.

Oh, I was under the illusion you were a "registered" Republican.
