I have been growing disillusioned about American politics for quite some time. I went from being a staunch Republican, to a RINO, to unaffiliated, to Democrat, and now I just want to wash my hands of the whole matter. Both parties are money-driven and the so called Party of the People of which I am a registered voter now doesn't really represent the people any more effectively than the GOP.

What to do, what to do....? Become unaffiliated again? Maryland is nearly last in the presidential primaries so what's party membership matter anymore. Change back to Republican and be a RINO? That would help me in Carroll County elections and elections for state delegate/state senator so I could vote in those primaries, but I'm just not "feeling it" anymore (that is, I stayed away from the GOP for a reason).

The Republicans, who are too far to the right, disgust me. The Democrats, who are too far to the left, scare me. Shall I secede and declare my house a sovereign republic, like Peter Griffin did on Family Guy? (very early episode...) Or just turn my eyes away from all political news and information, and embrace the rather inaccurate proverb "ignorance is bliss"?
