why does anyone align themselves with either the democrats or republicans?

I've often wondered the same thing. I "belong" to neither party. I vote for the person, not the party. It just so happens that in the last several elections, the Republicans seem to share my views. Dems have gotten too liberal for me. When I vote, I am listed as unaffiliated. I personally think that "party politics" should be scrapped.

Partly to get folks to ask that question but mostly 'cause we can. My party's views best fit my ideals.

I do it mostly to tick other people off.

Most people belong to the same party as their parents. Just as most people belong to or hold with the same church as did their parents. That to me is blind faith on both counts. My parents were Babtist Republicans. But, as a free thinker, I have voted on both sides of the political lines.
And, as a Christian, I find it hard to be associated with any religion.

My liberal democrat union father and my democrat mother did not influence me at all.
My dad tried but it was not effective.
I vote Republican because the platform is closer to my ideas.
(By the way I was a Republican before I was a Christina)
None are perfect but the democrat party is so far left of me;
it left me.

Just some stats for you 85% of the countys Bush won Had Farming as there main Industry. only 2% of the Gore countys had farming as main Industry
I think the Republicans have the same values as Rural America.

It should be banned. One party put up a draft dodger for president and the other party could not come up with some one to beat him. dumb, dumb dumb.

The draft dodger was Clinton who would'nt open his draft notice but instead headed to England under the excuse of higher education. At least George W. served his country state side. Don't forget, his father was the youngest pilot to be shot down in the Pacific. I believe a brother was also lost during WW-2. That family served this country well and still serving.

Cause my grandfather would turn over in his grave if I voted democrat.

Friends don;t let friends vote democrat.

In reality primaries are for Rep. or Dems to choose their canadates. A lot of people change parties for the primaries which defeat the purpose. You have to register for a given party to be able to vote in their primary in Wyoming. In the General election you vote for whoever agrees the most to your way of thinking.

Be sure and vote, vote early and vote often

I know, Kraig, the cemetaries hate when that happens!
My dad was cremated so he does no cause much of a stir when he turns over.

I'm not a citizen yet so I can' t vote (or not vote as the
case may be). Expect to be a libertarian though. Just a
foreigner closet libertarian dying to come out!

I'm a lifelong registered Democrat.

I was asked my political affiliation when I applied for my drivers license. It's not on the license but they do it at the same time & place.LOL!!

james    Posted 01-12-2004 at 13:40:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
