From 2D to 3D Politics
(Originally posted by Bruzzone at Huffington Post/Elections 2012, October 11, 2011)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- I know 2D politics. I was a political party leader, often labeled a conservative. In fact, I was a former chair of the San Francisco Republican Party. I've written hundreds of raw meat conservative articles, commented often in the press, and produced and hosted several TV public affairs programs here.
That changed with a speech I gave at a Republican Women Federated luncheon about a year ago. In that speech I roundly criticized both Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberal progressives. More importantly, I highlighted one of the largest and most powerful U.S. voting blocs -- the independent voter base. I noted that independent or 'declined to state' voters are rapidly increasing n all states. Rasmussen Reports estimates that 32% of all U.S. voters are unaffiliated.
