Oregon's Independent Party: What does it really mean?
“I've been trying to use 'nonaffiliated,' but it's not as flashy or as easy to understand as 'independent,'”
Portland resident Kurt Lootens was a Republican, then tried being a Democrat, but wasn't comfortable with either one. via The Ashland Daily Tidings

Independent means not subject to the control of others. Democratic and Republican spokespersons find the Independent Party name confusing and sophomoric. Perhaps these parties should call themselves Special Interest Party and Big Corporate Donor Party. Their current names may confuse voters that they are dedicated to policies about democratic process or republican representation.
Voter discontent is real, but partisans worry about confusion. How condescending. You cannot mistakenly check an independent box on the Voter Registration Card. There is none. The Independent Party is identified as the Independent Party. Unaffiliated voters can check "Not a Member of a Party." Join a discussion of ideas (or our name) at indparty.com , and vote the candidate and the merits, regardless of party registration.

The Oregon Indpendent Party means: pay it big money, then you will be nominated.
Oregon Working Family Party means: nothing common with the real working families, but a puppet of organize unions mafia, and acts for interests of unions' junta.
What a scam!
