Criticizes Trump's concentration camps for brown kids. I bet he's getting ready to roll over on Trump.

Yes, voted in the primary yesterday. I can damage the Republicans more this way.

Waste of time. I tried that years ago, when the crazy righties were clearly out to take over the GOP.

The GOP is minuscule in the District. Were you registered here, or a neighboring state?

I suspect it is pretty easy to get a minimum-wage one-day job as an election judge as a Republican in DC. strife is just feathering his nest.

yeah sure okay

Pointless to be part of the local Dems. They dominate DC politics. The modern GOP must be Destroyed, so I'm a sabateur.

Pa. As I said, it was years ago. The progressive party of John Heinz (P'burgh and Philly area GOP) was being subsumed by the extremists.

If you care about having a say in who governs you, it is pointless to register as anything but Democratic in DC, since who governs you is determined in the Democratic primary.

Higgs: Then why not debate it?

There are always a couple of non-Democrats on the DC Council, because Republicans in Congress demanded that the city charter have a provision that not all seats could be filled by members of one party. All other elected officeholders in the District are Democrats, and have been since Home Rule was established,

With the exception of the at-large council seats, the winner of the general election is detrmined in the Democratic primary. Voting in the Republican party means choosing between losers, if there is a contest.

(The non-Democrats in the reserved seats on the Council are not necessarily Republicans. At times they have been independents or third party members.)

Edit: I just checked. Now there are two Independents on the Council, no Republicans.

You wish to settle down with a good Christian woman with significant inherited wealth, but your tennis isn’t good enough to do it the traditional way.

The debate is whether Felix can have more impact as a saboteur versus adding his tiny voice to the machine.
