How Important is Party Affiliation to You?
When I consider who I am one of the last labels I think of is Republican. However, I am in fact a Republican. I am a child of a Republican politician. There really should be a club for all of us. And as such one thing I have always known is those who have power never worry about parties. If you have the power you make up the rules as you go. It really is that simple. Not to mention that all people with power consort with other people with yes, power. So in my life I have always known Republicans and Democrats in power who are very good friends. Even today as I write this hub, I am a consortist with my brethren Democrats as well as Republicans. However, what I can’t take is the Tea Party crowd. They are such and embarrassment to politics and represent such an extreme a minuet portion of America as of only to make themselves completely irrelevant.
When I consider myself I think Mom, girlfriend, friend, businesswoman, student, professor, researcher, traveler and healer. I don’t even think about being Republican.
And things have gotten really nasty lately in American politics. Yes, I have stirred the pot on occasion but not personally attacking a specific political party well maybe the Tea PArty but they deserve it. As a Republican I am being spammed, on a daily basis, hate mail about Obama. Now I have to state officially while I don’t agree with 100% of what anyone does, I do like Obama. And as a Republican I am embarrassed by all of this hate speech towards Obama. I am also not wild about the negative ads the Obama camp is putting out about Romney. I definitely don’t want to be spammed hate Obama email as it only makes me softer to Obama and vice versa for Romney. I should mentioned this spammer is a former member of Hubpages who has been banned.
As a Floridian the pressure is on again this year and my telephone is ringing off the hook, I am getting all this spam about which way to vote and there are more presidential ads on the television then there is substantive programming. Even now I have just regained control of my email account which was filtering all email as spam because I was receiving so much political spam. This is a horrific inconvenience as I write for HP and I have to respond to my commenters in a timely fashion, I am a businesswomen who is setting up a business and I am have a paper in press. And I haven’t had email because of political ads? At one point when is the government going to realize their drunken lust for power is interfering with job creation. Because I, JT Walters, am trying to start a business to create industry in our community but have been hindered by political spam.
And when I think of myself, I think Mom, girlfriend, friend, businesswoman, leader, researcher, innovator, traveler and healer. I don’t think of myself as a Republican until I hit about the 100th adjective. When are the politicians going to stop dividing this country and get out of the way of industry and innovation so this country can rise to a new dawn? Why do they constantly wish to keep this country and its people in darkness?
Where Do You Rank Party Affilation when Describing Yourself?See results without voting
I ask when describing yourself how far down the list do you have to go to get to party affiliation. How important is party affiliation to you? In Florida there is a hair's razor difference between the Democrats and Republicans. I am actually a environmentalist Republican who is old guard. I am certain that I am a novelty but there are others like me. The fact of the matter is there are so many other adjectives to describe who and what we are that party affiliation is almost moot these 2012. It is only as important as you think it is and that is true whether you consider yourself a Republican or a Democrat. And it is most important to the guys running for the job. Personally I don't plan on giving them anymore power then they already have had over me. I am pretty p.o. about my email being shut down for a month as it interfered with my businesses. I place p.o. above Republican especially in this election cycle.
