An unorthodox suggestion


I suggest that my friends in Florida who are registered as Democrats or NPA (no party affiliation) change their party affiliation on their voter registration to Republican.

Why?  Because Florida is a “closed primary” state so only people registered as members of a particular political party can vote in that party’s primary election.

Do you want to influence who President Obama will face in November? 

You have the right to do so – but only if you’re a registered Republican.

That’s why I changed my party affiliation to Republican earlier this year.  I want President Obama to be running against Newt Gingrich, not Mitt Romney.  Watch this video clip of Bill O’Reilly on Fox News to understand why.


Some of my Democratic friends can’t imagine registering as a Republican.  I say, you have the right to vote in any primary you choose.  With no Democratic presidential primary, why waste that vote?  Register as a Republican and help shape the election!

You must do so by January 3rd to vote in Florida’s January 31st presidential primary.  Don’t waste a minute; do it now.

It’s easy.  Just click here, complete and print the form, and put it in the mail.  Or call your local Supervisor of Elections.  Don’t waste your vote.

  1. Interesting and correct analysis; but I will stay where I am and let the other party see if it will as it usually does, self-destruct.

  3. I just did as you suggested for the very reason that you suggested. I take a bit of issue with the Dem Nat Committee for the slang jargon used in the piece "Gotta Register" and "you've gotta register". Let's speak and communicate in English, not some gangster language. This is a bit too cutsey for me.
    Otherwise, I hope that BO sticks it to JB and the TP crew. That would be my best Christmas present.

  4. I remember, in 2008 Rush Limbaugh called it operation Chaos when he had republicans in open primary states vote for Hillary Clinton to extend the primary season.

    Not a bad idea.

  5. I don't think I have the moxie to register Republican. And I'm worried that this registration, which will be on the record, may have unintended future consequences.

    I understand the reasons for getting Newt to be the Republican nominee. However, should Obama lose the election, I'd sure rather have Romney as my president than Gingrich!

  6. I filled out the form and put it in the mail today. Now - who are you going to vote for in January? I'm inclined to vote for Huntsman.
