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?
