In order to vote in next month’s primary in Arizona, my new official residence, I have had to declare a party affiliation. What a travesty.

I’m independent, and have voted for people from both major parties and several minor ones. I do lean left on many issues, which tends to lead me to more Democrats — though the current Democratic Party is in many ways just a me-too version of the Republicans.

In any event, I registered as a Democrat in Arizona. As soon as the primary is finished I plan to remove that designation. In some future primary I’ll be a Republican, no doubt.

The candidates get to decide how to triangulate the voters. Why can’t we voters triangulate the candidates? Some system.
