Iowa Big Box Parties Hemorrhaging Voters

KCCI Des Moines reports that voter registration numbers released by the state on Friday show that both branches of the Republicrat Party are losing registered voters.

According to the article on KCCI's website: "In the past year, Republicans have lost 10,997 registered voters while Democrats lost 17,235 registered voters. Independents gained 7,527 voters, according to the Iowa Secretary of State's office. [...] The new numbers show 602,768 Republicans, 711,106 Democrats, 774,005 no party or independent, and 1,682 listed as 'other.'"

Iowans are obviously dissatisfied with both parties and with the whole sullied political process. I can't say as I blame them.


  1. I can't blame anyone, either. Voters do not feel they are listened to or valued unless it is to contribute money or show up to vote a certain way on election day.

  2. If you are happy with the way things are going, be sure to vote for Chuck Grassley (if reelected pushing 40 years in Washington) or his big government opponent.

    If you are not happy with the expansion of government at home and abroad in recent years, you can support the alternative, John Heiderscheit of Bettendorf, who will be on the ballot this fall under the Libertarian line.
