Which political party do you choose to be stranded with and why?

    Okay, this may start a war, but I am truly curious- especially with the "why" portion of the question...

    You are being shipped to a remote, deserted island. You must choose one person to go along with you, but all you know about him or her is their political affiliate. Only three parties are listed- Republican, Democrat, Libertarian...which stranger do you choose and why?

      I'll go with Republican.  They seem to tend to be on the heavier side, and it could come down to cannibalism.

      Democrat.  Opposites would have a better chance of getting out of a tough spot, believe it or not.

    Hmm, an issue of survival. I'd want the party most representative of teamwork. Unfortunately, I don't know which one that is.

    This is going to sound backward, but I'm going by personal experience I have with people I know; the Libertarians are not controlling, so you wouldn't have that horror of someone trying to bully you; the so-called Liberals, I guess we are using the term Democrat, that I've known are actually hateful, callous and controlling; which is entirely contrary to their rhetoric. Conservatives I've known, meaning Republicans I suppose, actually feel you should be basically free to do what you want and do respect actual work. So, I must admit, I definitely don't want the Democrat with me and it would be a toss-up between the Libertarian and Republican; I'm leaning toward Libertarian. I'm a bit left-leaning politically, so this is definitely not bias going on here on my part.

      Libertarians are also very resourceful, at least in my limited experience with them.

        I've noticed that too. That feeling for and of freedom brings resourcefulness, it seems.

    I am an Anarchist, which is really an ideology, and falls under the "Libertarian Socialism" group. That being said, if I had to choose from the 3 groups you've posted, I would choose Libertarian. Equal power and rights. Teamwork among the stranded is the name of the game.
