Response: I understand where the Bishop is coming from and can relate. The only thing about being an Independent is during the Primary Election you can only vote for on party such as a Democratic or Republican Ballot. You can’t vote for both. So how do you determine which ballot you want? Do you look at the candidates or do you look at the party’s platform? In the General Election it does not matter.
For years, African Americans have voted overwhelmingly for any and everybody on the Democratic ticket. However, due to the recent "direction" of Democratic leadership, Bishop Paul S. Morton is taking a stand. "For the first time in my life I’m coming out as an independent!" he states.

"I have been a Democrat since I started voting in America, but this party is getting farther and farther away from what Kingdom people believe. For too long, Democrats have taken our vote for granted but kingdom people have rights too, and don’t want to be taken for granted. We will not just except anything. (More)
