Independents and the Two Parties

In New Jersey, a plurality of voters is unaffiliated (our version of "independent"). That doesn't even count people like me who switch affiliation depending on which primary looks more interesting.

Unfortunately, the two parties seem to be taking the wrong lessons from this state of affairs. The Reps have become more strident, and the Dems are rapidly abandoning whatever principles they may once have held.

Perot had the right idea. It's a shame that Buchanan peed in our sandbox.
