Gentlemen (especially Leftie), apparently the bulge in my cheek from my tongue wasn't visible because of the mask I was wearing when posting.
I've voted for Greens, Libertarians, Peace and Freedom, Reform, Dems, Reps and I think even a Communist once for various offices. About the only party I've studiously avoided voting for over the years is the AIP, which Afaict from their ballot statements seems to be made up of people who are Trump's most committed base: White supremacists/militias, isolationists, know nothing's and the like.
