I went to this local Democratic fundraiser in September. I don't belong to any political party, and don't vote either, since I am not a U.S. citizen. (I am a citizen of Thailand, but I don't vote there either because I don't understand the politics there at all except that it's pretty rotten.) Anyway, I didn't give the Dems any money except $2 (or was it $5?) for the food I ate, but basically just went there to take pictures and greet a few people I knew. I do believe that their party presently has a better set of policies than the Republicans. I also believe that Ralph Nader and Lyndon laRouche, whatever their believes are, are egomaniacs and therefore not worth electing.
