    Michael Bloomberg Re-Registers As Democrat Ahead Of Midterms Em4bX

    From CBS News

    Emily Tillett of CBS News wrote:Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has re-registered as a Democrat just 27 days before the 2018 midterm elections. The billionaire philanthropist posted news of his latest party affiliation on social media, saying that the Democratic Party needs to step up and act as a "bulwark" against "those who threaten our Constitution."



    "Today, I have re-registered as a Democrat — I had been a member for most of my life — because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs," Bloomberg wrote in a caption to a photo of him filling out his New York state voter registration form.

    Bloomberg was previously a member of the Democratic Party but switched in 2001 to run for New York mayor as a Republican. He later dropped the GOP affiliation to run for re-election as an independent and has since thrown his support behind Democratic political candidates, including Hillary Clinton in 2016, when he spoke at the Democratic convention.

    Besides endorsements, the former mayor has put his money toward more Democratic-leaning initiatives, pledging tens of millions of dollars through his philanthropy arm to tackle issues like climate change, public health and education. And with $80 million in hand, he's also intent on helping Democratic candidates flip the Republican-held majority in the House this November.

    But his latest party swap only fuels more speculation of a potential run for president in 2020. He told the New York Times in September that it was "impossible to conceive that I could run as a Republican," citing vital ideological differences from the GOP. He added that if he indeed decided to run, he'd "have to run as a Democrat."

    The deadline to register to vote in New York state by mail, person or online is Friday, October 12.

    I can remember a time when if you ran as a Republican or Democrat, in the end, you would be able to work in harmony with the opposing party to get things done.  Today is a far cry from it, and it's not just in public office.

    Before I go onward, I want to make this point crystal clear.  I vote Democrat, but in no means do I have any hatred or ill-will toward Republicans.

    That being said, today, we have not only our public officials constantly battling each other, throwing insults back and forth, but we have regular people doing the same thing to the point of straight-up hatred.  I've always said that Republicans are sensible people.  So are Democrats.  We have differing views, but we want to get things done for the better for America.  But I want to reiterate that in my opinion (yes, I have my opinion), there's a difference between a Republican and a Trumper or Trumplican.  Like I said, a Republican is a sensible person.  A Republican will actually listen before taking action whether they vote with the party or not.  A Trumper or Trumplican (or whatever you call them based on their undying support of Donald Trump) will take Trump's word as Gospel.  Why?  Because HE said so.  White Supremacists are "very fine people." No problem.  I won't use any more examples.  You get the idea.

    So the choice is yours.  You have a mind.  You can use it, or you can drink the Trump brand Kool-Aid.  That's gonna be the determining factor as how people look at you as far as politics are concerned.

    Just saying.
