Yes Yes I am a republican

I have been registered to vote since the day I turned 18 years old. I have attended a presidential inaugeration ( I was in high school) and have worked on campaigns for democrats as well as republican throughout my years opting to support the best candidate instead of just my parties' person. I grew up military and consider myself fiscally conservative but socially liberal (thus being a defender of the indigent). Why am I bringing this up well this week I recieved a republican party census document because by god my "opinions represent my fellow republicans in my area". The questions are so slanted its ridiculous. So Jack and I decided to put a few responses in that weren't offered. ex/ should we make sur president Bush's judicial nominees recieve fair hearings and up or down votes in thesenate even when Democrats threaten a filibuster. Our answer states "as long as that goes both ways". The questions that is making me contemplate going to the election board and reregistering was number three on the back:
3. Will you join the Republican National Committee by making a contribution today?
Yes I support the RNC and am enclosing my most generous contribution
Yes I support the RNC, but I am unable to participate at this time However I have enclosed 11 dollars to cover the cost of tabulating my survey.
No, I favor electing liberal democrats over the next ten years.

Every time I finish a big trial (i.e. 2005 murder trial) I have to clean. This drives Jack crazy. If my office is already in order which it usually is I attack his office (his usually is not). Lucky for Jack I am rearranging. I had ten years of old jury instructions, seven years of calenders and ten years of pocket parts. Why as attorneys do we feel the need to hold on to every piece of paper concerning law? I have finally today gotten rid of my barbri books. It's not like i'm going to take my own state's bar again.

Does anyone else have this problem?
