Anarchism all day baby!!!!!! I think the whole system is one big jerk off session between our government and corporate overlords

To be honest (assuming OP is American) I'm surprised not many people question the constitutionality of political parties. After all they aren't not mentioned in the constitution (as if that even matters anymore ).

In fact, if you look at the protests in HK, and why they are protesting, it is against the system we have here in America. A system where a political party (Communist party in China/ Dems and Reps in USA) selects an "appropriate candidate" for the people to choose from INSTEAD of being able to directly choose the candidate themselves.

If I have this wrong I'm open to any corrections but this is how I see it.

That said, as long as there are governments and corporations working together, the common man is F$%KED

Technically I'm registered as independent, but I can't ever see myself voting Republican. I know the Democrats aren't perfect, but I don't agree with a majority of what I hear Republicans say.

With CR becoming an archive of personal info, I don't see this one asked so why not.

What is your political party, and why?

Me:



I am now probably always will be an Independent. Why? Because no party represents me and I don't represent them. They are all controlled by big money, not political ideology. As long as that is true I will not join. A site you might want to visit is wolf-pac.com. Get the money out of politics! Seriously.

P.S. I am not voting this year to screw you Malloy and Foley!

Well, I tend toward the center-left (globally speaking), and so in the US (which is where CR is based and therefore the frame of reference I'll use) I would reasonably fit the titles "progressive" and "liberal". It's hard to pin that down to a specific party since even among social democratic parties there is a wide range of views and stances, but I'll do my best.

Party affiliations in the US which would reasonably suit me include the Green Party (minus the conspiracy theories and anti-nuclear power tendencies), the Democratic Party (the left-wing of it, anyway, with liberal internationalism thrown in for good measure), and the Justice Party (though corporate personhood isn't something I think should be abolished outright, just drawn back from what I consider to be overreach). I would be comfortable with a Sanders administration, though I consider that to be something which would arise just shortly after the second coming of Christ.

Yeah see, I don't really think there's a clear line between the two since no matter what somebody will always find something to tie you to the other side

So yeah. Political parties are bull.

I don't party.


My belief is that we should always vote in the people most likely to succeed at their role regardless of party. Who is more qualified to deal with the challenges of that position? Also I check their contributions to make sure no one is put in position to "regulate" the industries that fund them. Preferably I pick candidates with the highest small contribution percentages and specifically avoid candidates funded by entertainment, ISPs, and insurance companies. Regulatory Capture is a very real threat and those 3 industries are the biggest culprits.

I would prefer to abolish or severely limit those regulatory bodies but unfortunately local governments have been bought out just about everywhere and have stupid laws to limit the free market. I doubt we can weed all the crap out so the only other thing we can do is try to keep the higher regulatory bodies parasite-free. In this vein ISPs should be reclassified under Title-II of the 1996 Telecommunications act with forbearance being exercised on the line laying rules.

Sorry for the volume of edits but I have one last thought to put out there... The data shows that the winning candidate is almost always the one who spent more. Advertising wins elections. I believe that to root out corruption once and for all we must implement a low funding cap with a slowly inflating value that allows all candidates the opportunity to compete at a similar level. (yeah, pretty much what the NFL does)

None, I unregistered

used to be Democrat though

But now I don't care about politics in the least bit



Also I voted for Obama during the first election, this is literally how much I don't care, I am willing to tell people who I vote for, and other people say they don't care but hide it. like it's some personal shit lol.
