Interesting that more Democrats are unwilling to 'fess up to Party affiliation.

I took a survey yesterday from the Republican National Committee. I took the opportunity to share my feelings about those in Washington. For the first time in my adult life since deciding I was a Republican, I'm willing to entertain the idea of moving outside the fold. Our Republicans in D.C. had better continue to move in the right direction or there's going to be a mass exodus to a third party.
