Unaffiliated and Proud
Winston Churchill said that when your young, if your not a liberal, you have no heart; when your old, if your not a conservative, you have no brain. I've come to believe if your not an independent, you have no honesty. Being an independent candidate, I was exposed to activists in both parties, to them winning justifies any means. Certainly telling the truth for them is a gray area, that's why they call it spinning. There is no hesitation to pander, distort and resort to revisionism. These supporters belittle opponents and potential opponents. They egg each other on, blindly defend one another, and feel superior to the opposition. They blame problems on the other party, and think only they have the solutions. The only thing they have in common is a dislike for independents.
