Little did I realize when I donated $35 to the Libertarian Party recently that I was doing more than supporting the efforts of another party. What I didn’t remember was that when you donate anything $25 or over, you actually become a card carrying member of the party. So, it surprised me today when I received a letter in the mail today proclaiming me a member of the party, with membership card and everything.
Oh well. Whatever the Libertarians think of me, I still consider myself an Independent and have no plans on changing my voting affiliation any time soon.
