I'm switching my voting registration from Democrat to independent.
I'm doing it to send a message to the democratic party that I'm not happy with the way they operate, not happy with their leadership and not happy with their pseudo-liberalism and the pro-corporatist policies that they have embraced.
I'm changing to independent because the two party system is killing America and killing democracy.
I'm changing to independent because choosing the lesser of two evils in an election leads to two worse evils in the next election cycle.
I'm changing having gone to vote in the PA 2012 primary, with no need to be a Democrat for quite a while, and knowing I can re-register as a Democrat if I choose to, for future primaries.
I'm changing to independent knowing that it may upset some activist colleagues.
I'm changing to independent because I'd like to set an example, and at the same time join millions of others who already made the choice. The example I'd like to set is of millions of Democrats leaving the Democratic party sending a message that we're not happy, in fact, we're really disgusted and are not going to take it any more.

I haven't done it yet. I'm thinking it might be good to identify a few Dump the Democrats days-- where a lot of people, en masse, change their registration at the same time, so the message to the Democrats and Obama is even stronger.
