Democrat from Kentucky
We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Those who know me know that, for many years (actually, generations), i have been a member of the Whig party. Long story, has much to do with being an 18 year old trying to think of the silliest possible thing to register to vote and remembering the party of Henry Clay.

Actually, over the years, i have much liked being a registered Whig. i got some others to register likewise, and we would get together on occasion for a party caucus (always at a place with suitable "by-the-drink" licensing). And when all the candidates of choice were idiots, you could always write in Henry Clay. (Or occasionally Gatewood Galbraith, on the grounds that, like Clay, he would keep a brass cannon in the house to shoot at unwanted visitors, if he thought of it.)

But now i'm going to have to go down to the blasted courthouse and change my party affiliation. It seems a more recent group has co-opted the name of "whig" to themselves, and have ruined the meaning forever, Henry Clay notwithstanding.

Who? Why, these bastards:

For my next party affiliation i'm thinking Anti-Federalist.
