Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But you have to tell the government your political affiliation.

Now seriously, can you explain the difference between

  • registered Democrat voter
  • Democrat donor
  • Democrat activist/volunteer
  • Democratic Party "member" (card-carrying?)
  • What is the DLC?

Is there anything to prevent someone who is not a registered democrat from running in the Democratic party primary? The way I see it, the Democratic Party primary is about winning the party's endorsement. You can see how much that was worth to Lieberman, who still went on to win as an independent and caucus with the Dems retaining his seniority.

If you want the Socialist [or any other] Party candidate to represent you, you join the party [which may or may not include paying dues]. If none of the parties' candidates represents you, you can form your own party.
