Democrat/Republican

Postby Stan Nicely Jr » Fri May 23, 2014 4:40 am

Do you think there is starting to be any shift in the % of Democrats vs. Republicans in Harlan Co. I have really considered switching because I share very few views with today's democrat party. The only reason I haven't is because I hate to miss out on voting in the primaries and the Republican Party has very little to vote for in May elections. It's not that I'm thrilled with the Republican Party either, but for me, it's the lesser of two evils.

Most of your graduating seniors are registering as Republicans. I'm also registered as a Democrat in name only to participate in local elections. Bell County, and Leslie County both hold a majority of registered Republicans. Leslie County especially.

My wife and I both changed to Republican as well because I don't feel that I can support the democrat's policy.

The Democrat Party of John Kennedy no longer exists.

Doesn't matter what party you are registered. You end up with the same results.

I'd like to see Kentucky go to an open system of voting where you aren't stuck with one party in the primary.

There's really a lot of DINO's in this county. They stay registered so they can vote in the primaries, and still hope the Democrats can be the part they were in 1960. Many people have saw the Democratic party abandon most of their values and beliefs and cannot in good conscience remain in the party.

I'd like to see it too. I'd say this elections out come would have had different results.

Also the republicans don't pay for votes... I know a whole family in close proximity to where I live that not one member has ever voted for free, and probably never will... I can't wrap my mind around the concept... We used to ask em who they were supporting in the upcoming and they would say we haven't made our mind up yet... In other words they hadn't yet been told who to support... How can they do that!?!?!?!? To me that's like selling your birthright...
