"BECOME???? I don't recall George Wallace having that many problems, "exploiting" Old South voters."

George Wallace didn't "exploit" the Old South voters. Old South voters believed the same way he did, so what was there to exploit? Sham - you really should stop commenting on things you know nothing about!

Sham truly struggles with racism folks....he/she must be in constant turmoil. I wonder, maybe one of his/her parents is black and he/she can't cope...who knows..but something in the pot stirs the rage about racism and it isn't any poster here, must be something much closer to home.

Off topic but interesting!

Putting it into perspective: During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and endiing with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. Produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military trucks. We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany .

It's worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, The Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.

The primaries are for party members to select their presidential candidates and I believe that’s the way it should be. Otherwise Democrats could vote for Republican candidates and visa versa. We don’t need those kinds of shenanigans.

Erik, I’ve never believed the Tea Party Movement had anything to do with either political party. It started as a revolt against government’s rapid intervention into our economy toward the end of the Bush years. Politicians, especially Republicans, associated themselves with the movement to gain support, and some of us believe our best bet is to move the Republican Party back to the right where it belongs, but I still think the Tea Party is primarily a state of mind.

Phil, not all states have closed primaries. Here in PA we have to decide which candidate to support and change our party before the primary and then back again after the primary. It's a pain, but it is what it is.

What amazes me is that while we're all sitting here arguing back and forth and pointing out the short comings of each other's political affiliation, the politicians, on both sides are s c r e w i n g everybody. You included Sham.

Ritty, the main problem with being an Independent is not being able to vote in the party primaries. If Rand Paul runs as a Republican he may have a tough time overcoming the establishment Republicans without those independent votes. The same goes for any Conservative candidate.

Cap, until a viable third party comes along, I believe we’re better off trying to help make the Republican Party truly the opposition party; opposition to the radical leftist Democratic Party that is.

Enigma, that's why milions of people are now choosing to be an Independent; total distrust for both sides of the aisle. Give me a candidate that runs on the platform of abiding by the constitution and reigning in the power and spending of government and I'll vote for them regardless of party affiliation. To bad very few make those promises, or if they do they are rarely kept.

I'm amazed that people on either side will accept lies from elected officials. There's an old saying, "A person who will steal for you, will steal from you." The same holds true with lies. A politician who will lie to get you what you want, will lie to you to get what he wants. How is this acceptable? Elected officials who lie (and I mean lie not make mistakes) need to be ousted at the earliest opportunity.
