This is NOT a place for trading and selling items but rather a place for us to share our experiences and perhaps give a little bit of historical...

  • Party in the USA: The Conventions

    Party in the USA: The Conventions

    Created on: Tuesday, 22 June 2010
    Conventions may have lost their importance in the two major party's nominating processes, but these quadrennial spectacles continue to be an important part of the campaigns' efforts to engage voters. Though the outcome of a convention hasn't really been in doubt since 1980, they can still make news in terms of protests, the veep announcement, and platform disputes. What's more, on the state and local level they can still make news. Just in...

    CAN YOU IDENTIFY?????????????

    Created on: Saturday, 11 April 2009
    In the 1960's, one of the most popular features of APIC's THE KEYNOTER was a page devoted to identifying unknown political items. Many were unnamed candidates, or obscure "local yokels". There was always the hope that the unknown piece would turn out to be a rare third party candidate or presidential hopeful. Let's start a new 2009 version of CAN YOU IDENTIFY????? It may also be a useful place to...
