I am not a Democrat. I consider myself an independent Democratic Socialist. I was a card-carrying member of the Socialist Party of the United States from 2007-2008 but have sense decided that party politics is not for me. Since I began voting in 2006 I have voted for Green Party candidate Rich Whitney and Democrat Pat Quinn for Governor of my home state of Illinois, Democrats Dick Durbin and Alexi Giannoulious for Senator from Illinois, Bill Foster twice for Congress from my district, and Barack Obama for President in 2008, though I voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries (and still think she would have made a better president).
