    Are you an un-enrolled voter who belongs to no political party? Why? I ask because I am seriously thinking of leaving my party and I have been thinking deeply about what that entails and what I will do without a party.

    Is it possible to not be frustrated and angry and left with a feeling of powerlessness---of not belonging to the system---as I view most un-enrolled citizens being?

    of course...but you'll forget about all that once you have a taste.

    Well I am really not aware of what benefits you derive from the party affiliation you currently have, so it's hard to imagine what you'll be giving up.

    But as an unenrolled registered voter, I get exactly the same thing I got when I was enrolled in a party.

    Zippolla.

    I wouldn't belong to any party that would have me as a member.

    I guess you miss the point. Only party members have input how the party functions which has a huge effect on who gets the party nomination. You most likely get now what you got then because now you put nothing into it just as you did then.

    just signing up for a party membership and doing nothing constructive and then complaining about the end result is enough to drive anyone into apathy or idiocy.

    silly.

    I do not belong to most groups because of a sentiment that groucho was expressing, but...

    an election of the people that will lead us in governing is a special exception.

    you cannot complain with any validity or credibility if you are always on the outside contributing absolutely nothing to the process.

    You don't have to be an insider to contribute to the process. Try it and see.

    The Progressive Party is always looking for new members.
