Lot of crazies out there in the Democratic Party, and some in the Republican. It may be the only sane voters are the well informed, non bias TRUE Independent voters.
Crazies are everywhere. Fact is, several people I know who claim to be independents, are some of the craziest. You know, those people who can’t make a decision about crossbows and Sunday hunting.
I consider myself to be a true independent. I have been a registered Republican since my rebellious years when my parents were staunch blue collar Democrats. But, I have always voted for the candidate who I thought best represented my druthers. I have supported many Democrats over the years at all levels of Government.
In some states, like Maryland for example, with closed primaries, you have to be an R or a D to vote. You have no vote as an Independent. :/
