Sounds like fun, but no. I live in NYC and I work with people in subsidized housing. This means that my world is constantly rocked by the winds of entitlement programs and liberal excess. So when I declare that I am an Indendent, it means that I may vote for a democrat here, and a republican there. It hasn't happened that way in a while, but it could. I think our best course would be to try and reduce the distance our political pendulum swings because both sides are way out of hand right now. Like often happens on these boards, (and yes, I've done it myself), our leaders too often attack the individual instead of the issue. It's a better news snippet, but ultimately takes us nowhere.
