Independent = Unaffiliated? Not!

While talking to an acquaintance recently, I mentioned that no matter how suited I was for appointment to a local board it would never happen because I was registered as an Independent.

“Yeah, me, too,” he said. “I’m also unaffiliated.”

Huh? “Unaffiliated” as a synonym for Independent??

To me, being unaffiliated smacks of indecision. Wishy-washiness. Being an Independent by default. Not being able to choose either Republican or Democratic.

Well, guess what, I deliberately chose Independent and that’s how you can identify me.

Unaffiliated, my foot.


How is political affiliation related to a blog about Hillsborough? Geez, you must be new around here!
