    Sorry I haven't responded in a while, I was away all last week traveling for business. I'll read through and catch up and likely provide a few more thoughts.

        Another example of the problems with Party: https://www.nhpr.org/post/transsexua...wsuit#stream/0

        EDIT: I am less concerned with the lawsuit, in this context, than the nature of the nomination. She ran under the GOP primary for the office of Sheriff (which also beg the question, 'Why does New Hampshire allow partisan Sheriffs?') with a 'F--- the Police' platform/slogan...and won.

          An anarchist running as a republican for a sheriff's position? I expect, among other things, it's intended to show up problems with both major parties.

            Indeed it is. Her intent, apparently, was to expose the weaknesses of our single-party primary system.

              All of this would be funny if it wasn’t so serious.
