I decided to attend the Democrat-Farmer-Labor (DFL) caucus... and I almost immediately ditched.

I signed in for my nametag. I picked up my copy of the community resolutions to be voted on.  (They didn't have any pens available to fill it out, though.)  I picked up the caucus handbook, and I flipped pages until I found the day's schedule. It seemed that I wasn't actually needed to act on anything until the afternoon, so the day would be spent on procedural issues. I then walked out the door and escaped toward downtown Minneapolis. I didn't even join their free breakfast.

I think I can now stop calling myself any variety of Democrat. Clearly, I am an independent voter who is willing to let the Democrats (as a party) govern themselves. I'll avoid their caucuses in the future so I don't get wrapped up in their process. If their party wants my individual vote in November, then they'll just have to figure out for themselves which candidate can win my approval in the general election. (Hint: It isn't Hillary Clinton.)

The Minneapolis Community Conference was worth abandoning my role in the DFL caucus. I received lots of information to ponder, and I see plenty of opportunities for involvement in the future.
