I guess Politics is a bad thing to talk about.

Independent. I vote for the man, not the party dogma.

Me too, but I REALLY would love to vote FOR someone instead of AGAINST the worse of the awful candidates we seem to always get stuck with. It has been a very long time since I voted in a presidential election without holding my nose.

Conservative wasn't one of the options, so I went with Republican.

I can't relate to either. I have become more "anti-incumbent" and find myself favoring term limits a lot more in the last few years.

I don't think either party represents the actual majority of Americans aka people with jobs who work and pay taxes.

Elephants seem to represent Corporations and religious orgs, while the Donkeys seem to represent people who want to live off of the rest of us somehow.

And of course politicians of both parties make sure they are well taken care of before they worry about anything else.

Sorry for the lack of options the poll could have been better designed to cover non-party but more position. Lets assume if you are conservative it falls on the Republican side and if you are Liberal you fall under Democrat. If you don't care about politics or fall in the middle hit independent.

This FTW!!!

I don't really marry myself to a particular party, although the Republican Party tends to be more in line with most of my ideologies. However, the Democrats and Independents sometimes represent my beliefs.

Depends on what mood I'm in. Sometimes I'm a Libertarian. Other times I'm a Fascist. I usually identify with the Republican Party, but I'm also an Atheist so I get a lot of people yelling at me from my own right side.

<----Diehard conservative.

Would love to see an Allen West/Ted Nugent ticket...never happen though, two men who speak their minds and are definitely NOT politically correct.

I think being educated on the various issues is far more important than party affiliation. Personally, I prefer to vote in whatever way makes the most sense to me. When I was sworn in to the Marines, I vowed to protect from all enemies, foreign and domestic. The only way we can do that now, is by our votes. Although the electoral college got rid of the popular vote. This is why we are stuck with nObama. President nObama continues to blame the troubled economy on the Bush administration and his followers buy into every word. They, however, fail to recognize that under the current administration, the WORLDS economy has collapsed.

The Electoral College did not do away with the popular vote, the framers of the Constitution did away with the popular vote when they put in the provisions for the Electoral College.

I agree on religion but Politics should be discussed in open forum. At the end what is right will be the view of the people. So if a community wants to be conservative and your are not. Eiether live it it or move out. And vice versa if you live in a libreal community. Ultimatly, the prosperity of a community will be in the hands of the community. Today I find people not speaking out and defending what they believe in. Or its not PC. We should be very affraid of this.

I tend to agree. Religion is so fundamentally personal, and I think rational adults can respectfully agree to disagree where politics is concerned. Surprisingly it seems we are mostly a conservative/independent group, and shouldn't get too wound up over things. That said, if I found myself getting wound up about someone's comments, I'd probably avoid the thread.

I can see where you'd think that. My husband says I'm a 'closet liberal' because of some of my social views, but that's mostly because I don't feel that what I believe for myself should be made a law for someone who has a different view - live and let live. I don't think our country will make much progress if we continue to try to make our personal views a rule for the majority. If that's being liberal then so be it. We'll continue to squabble because we all think we're right. For myself, I'm conservative, particularly fiscally.
