I think perhaps individuals should make sure that they use a capital "I" when writing about Independents. It is a proper political philosophy after all. People don't write "republicans" or "democrats". Just a pet peeve that only bugs me ;)

Did you ever notice that you can't simply state your political views as "Independent" on Facebook? You have to use "Independents" in a generated search from a party in Liberia. lol! Really important stuff, I know. Hah ;)The devil is in the details.

You live in NYC? (Don't give me your address over the internet, lol). Just wondering because I went to High School in Manhattan.
W 76 and CPW. What a place to live!
Love the city. Always will. I'll stop babbling on now.

Yes, I noticed that about Facebook too --- Independents are invisible in many places -- until the Parties want our votes around election time....

Where do you live now? And have you been volunteering?
