The question is simple....Are you a Democrat, Republican or 3rd party? (I love election years!!!)

Explain why?

i don't consider myself a democrat because i think they are on the wrong side of energy independence, personal freedom, the "global warming"/global tax agenda, illegal immigration, union favors, and spending with no restraint.

i have lost a lot of faith in the republican party, but i am still hanging on by a thread because of republicans like ron paul, (a constitutional republican) who represents the republican party before the rise of the neocons and massive foreign aid spenders.

i have zero faith in the john mccain type republican and would definitely consider myself 3rd party if the party doesn't go back to its roots.

Neither of the three. There's no real third party.

I was a solid Republican for decades. Now I'm an independent, likely to vote Democratic for the forseeable future. I've only voted Democratic once so far, though.

The GOP has lost its credibility and is thrashing around like a bucket of fish out of water. They've been taken over by religious radicals and I'll have nothing to do with them again until they regain their sanity and start acting like adults.

What is the difference between a D and a R. They are now looking after their won narrow interests and not the countries.

I'm a Constitutional Conservative.

If someone is a Constitutionalist from way back in their political history, it doesn't matter what letter sits besides their name to me.


It is those with just a hint of Progressivism and say they are Conservative, that you have to watchout for. They are more dangerous than an out of the closet, yell it from the rafters, Progressive. You know what your getting and what to expect. There is no blindsiding you with them.
