Christie: Done With Partisan Politics

Christie Wood: Today is my birthday. I woke up with a plan that would set the world on the right course for me again. I drove to the clerk’s office and changed my voters registration card to unaffiliated. It felt so good to be free of ideals and platforms I do not support. The State Republican platform failed to include support for Human Rights. The National Republican platform has no exceptions for abortions even if a woman is raped. What has happened to the party that used to be celebrated and recognized for the great people in it like Nelson Rockefeller? Oh let me guess…too moderate. Not pure. On the other side of the aisle the Dems can’t decide if they want God or Jerusalem in the platform (well I guess they did decide last night). Whew- I am free to look at candidates for their strengths and weaknesses rather than their party. It feels good. My new moniker is UNAFFILIATED. So happy now. Something tells me they won’t miss me…

Question: What do you think of Christie's move?
