Local Democrats will have a meeting tonight

Very happy over this. Republicans in this town meet regularly but the Democrats simply have not for whatever reason. I don't myself hold any position in the Democratic party, and, after the state Democratic convention this summer, have decided that I prefer to be an independent populist that trends Democrat. Republicans for sure don't share my same values (I, for example, don't condone torture-I think it's wrong) and, since there are only 2 parties in what I perceive as a fairly fixed system, the Democrats are the choice that remains (I firmly believe that, until/unless laws are changed to prevent this, third party votes are usually spoiler votes of one kind of another-wish it was different.. .but it's not.) I used to be frustrated over the fact that so many of the prominent Democrats were also corporatists that voted against my interests, but I find that being less engaged with the party, per se, and more engaged with the issues, I am a happier person.

Here's wishing success to the new chairman of the Democratic party and all the precinct chairs who work to make the Democratic party more responsive to the platform and values true Democrats stand for.
