Concerning Canadian politics, I side most with the Liberal Party.

Politics gives me a headache, so I try ignore it as much as I can. Of course, since I live in Texas, it's hard to go a day without seeing an anti-Obama sticker. Still don't get why some people hate him so much.

I was a bit of a conservative Republican but that was over a decade ago. Now I lean liberal and Democrat.... I dislike both parties but the Democrats don't seem to care if I steal some of their scraps. In fact from time to time they might even give some of it away.

The Republicans are AWAYS afraid some one might get something cheaper than they can, consequently they hate to share anything.

The one thing I always disliked about the Right-wingers even when I was one of them was their blatant racism and homophobia. I've also found a great many of them are conveniently pro-Israel and anti-semetic at the same time.

Politicians are sales-people and I will trust a whore before I will trust a sales-person... That's not saying much.

Oh trust me, the extremists in this country aren't the brightest light bulbs of the bunch.

I grew up thinking of myself more as a conservative republican. But that was while growing up sheltered in Puerto Rico where most of my knowledge of American politics came from t.v personalities. After turning 18 and moving into the mainland (Florida) supporting myself. I learned a lot of hard real world lessons with bad experiences.

I do see both parties having the same sell out issues and money controlling interests. So then I consider myself Independent but I've supported the democrats recently. Though I don't agree with a number of their policies, it's just the lesser of two evils for me.

My parents turned around even harder then me. I remember them being big republican voters as a kid but now their registered Democrats. Basically for the same reasons I turned independent. The republicans are just downright scary nowadays.

Don't take it as a general insult to all of them as I know their not all the same and there's plenty of democrats I don't care for. Hence the "Independent" stance. If things change I'll be happy to change my position too. I don't consider myself to be set in stone for my ways.

Some of the most extreme people in this country were educated in top tier facilities.
Believe me, moderates are literally nonexistent in those who actively participate in politics.

Lots of idiots went to those places too.

Guess which school Gee Dubya Bush went to?

I'm independent.

I have both liberal and conservative views

Conservative: Reduced Government/Regulation/Tax/Spending, Pro-Life, Gun Rights

Liberal: Environment, Abolishing Capital Punishment, Increased Minimum Wage


My own views are that all wars should be ceased and troops recalled to their borders.

I'm an independent.

I'm liberal on some issues and conservative on some others.

I have my own view on things, but I tend to sympathize with whatever side doesn't think the other is full of complete idiots.

I don't sympathize very often.

I'm not interested in siding with any party for the sake of it.

That is a trap that pretty much causes people to defend their parties and lose sight of their true interest: the good of the nation.



Ignore who is in what party. Think about the good of the country instead. Decide what to do based on that.

Incorrect if you actually did some research you would see that they aren't the same animal. Yet another victim of Paul Weyrich and the lies told by the right wing think tanks. Of course everyone on the right misses the Two Santa clause theory by Jude Wanniski but than they just want every thing and to not pay for it. Really if you do some research you find out the most interesting things. First start looking at voting record I would start with the one for the Keystone and look at who got paid.

Paul Weyrich I don't want everyone to vote. Yes voter suppression is alive and well today if you don't vote you don't have a voice.

Two Santa clauses yes we will give you taxes cuts and you can keep your government cheese as well.

That said I would fall into the Green party though I vote Democratic the Greens just don't have their game together.As for the whole tax cuts I would rather kill the second Santa Clause then go into debt like we have been under every Republican President since Reagan. They are selling a lie it is nicely packaged but it is a lie. They don't care about the deficit unless a Democrat is in office.
