What Party Affiliation fits you best?
Do you consider yourself a Republican, Democrat, Independent or some other political affiliation? What one key factor of your chosen party is the most important to you and why?
Democrat, despite the fact that we are not a true Democracy, but a Republic. One thing that is important to me is freedom, although that seems to be in short supply these days.
Independent. Because I don't think that labels apply to the way I look at the way people interact with one another. I like the freedom of being able to chose a candidate for office because of who she or he is, not the party affiliation.
None, so I'm now a registered Independent. I don't believe in partisan politics and we should do away with them. They make us more divided as a people with clouded judgement, as many people side with their party often choosing party loyalty over logic and reason. The more people think independently, the more people will focus on the true caliber of the candidates and less of a political game it will be.
At the moment I'm an independent, but I strongly believe in bipartisanship - something unfortunately, both the Republicans and Democrats at the moment are not too good at. I do hope whoever is elected this November as the President would have the courage to reach across party lines and act in the country's interest. However, it doesn't appear that Romney would be able to pull it off, what with the conservative and Tea party agenda, and I'd thus vote for the Democrats.
With all due respect President Pbama has not been great at bipartisanship so I am curious as to why you would give him 4 more years? Do you feel as though President Obama has contributed to class warfare? I am truly interested in your opinion.
I did not say that Obama has been effective at bipartisanship-I do hope the next president is. But as I said, I'm not sure if Romney would be any better. No, Obama does not believe in class warfare - eliminating tax breaks for rich is not warfare.

I’m curious to know what the ‘breaking point’ was for people who have switched Parties in their lifetime -from either side. I’ve always been on one side, but I read about people who’ve said they ‘seen the Iight’ and switched (no pun there, ha ha)
