    Should the poster you all know as California Girl join the Republican Party?

    Now, I have always determinedly remained independent of either party. However, recently I have wondered whether it is better to stand outside the two parties and vote for whoever I see as most representative of not just my view but who best represents the 'American way' or should I join one of the parties and push for that party to become what it should be instead of the party as they currently are.

    Obviously, the dems are doomed. Far too many 'far left' members and nowhere close to the 'American way'. So, I am left with the Republicans.... now, the GOP are not a great party and have far too many idiots but more likely to be a 'home' for someone like me.

    The benefits of joining, to me, would be:

    1. The party needs more 'voices', instead the 'old white guys'.

    2. I keep being accused of being a Republican anyway so it would save me the bother of defending my non-republicanism.

    3. It would annoy the crap out of JokeDorkey who thinks of the GOP as 'his' party.

    So, friends, Romans, countrymen, should I join or should I not join? I am not, by nature, a joiner. Would I be happy as a Republican?

    Well as one of those Republicans, I say yes, I welcome anyone that has passion and love for this nation. So should I tell the RNC your membership dues are on the way? lol

    I wouldn't do it (this coming from someone who has left the GOP). But it's your call. I am tired of the fringes taking over our 2 party system. In both cases, it doesn't seem that those of us with mixed feelings on social and fiscal issues are welcome to their ever shrinking tents.

    That's a good point. I said as much to JokeDorky with his stupid sig of 'cleaning out "his" republican party... one wingnut at a time'. It is people like him with his narrow stupidity that make me think the GOP is not a place for those who do not conform.... but, to be honest, I figure that Joke is actually a democrat. After all, it is the left who are intolerate towards others.
