The "deal" has primarily to do with voting in primary elections where each party elects its candidate to run in the general election. You can vote in any primary but by doing so you declare yourself a member of that party. I believe it is that way to prevent any one party from affecting which candidate another party runs against them in the general (everybody votes for whomever they like) election by sending their own party members in to vote in the other's primary election.
The purpose that say the Democratic Party holds a primary election is to select one Democratic candidate to run in the general election against whomever the other parties choose to run against them.
I don't know if that clears anything up but I tried

Well I was a Liberal-Moderate Republican, but since the party got taken over by the Extreme Right, I, like Jim Jeffords kicked ourselves out.
I guess, I'm independent I just wish the GOP would move back to the center. I don't think I could stomach another Texas oilman or ilk. Perhaps McCain or Hagel, otherwise I will vote Democrat.

Republican, I was born and lived in a communist country for a good while. And today's Democrats just seem that they like Joe Stalin a little too much.

Conservative Democrat or Liberal Republican. So that makes me an Independent? Sometimes I really hate politics.

I agree. I am generally considered a Republican, but as it was said, there are idiots on both sides, so I dont vote merely by party lines.

President McCain hopefully will be our next President, otherwise this country is screwed. Hobomba would be worse than Carter.

Worse than Carter? the man who singlehandedly got Hamas to sign a treaty with Israel? And could you call Obama buy his realy name? You wouldn't like it if I called you Half Nelson, now would you?

When I register to vote, I will register Democrat.

As a former police officer, there is not much you could call me that I haven't been called before.

If you plan on joining the military at anytime in your future, good luck if a Democrat is President. Democrats are notorious for not taking care of the military and downsizing instead, also the troops that are serving are almost always lacking for eqpt they should have under a Democrat.

Another kid who hasn't experienced life enough yet to know the facts. Remember this, when you get to be in your 30's, if it takes that long, let's see if you feel the same way politically as you appear now. Your gonna get burned at least once in your life by a Democrat in power, as you live your going to see that the Republican way is the Right way. Let's also remember that it was the Union, mostly Republican (except maybe Gen. Custer who was a Democrat but look what happened to him) that won the Civil War against the mostly Democrat Confederacy.
