I am mostly an Independent or Republican voter. I am a member of the Republicans for choice but in recent years, have been following the Libertarians more and more.
How about you?

back when i was young and had an open mind of mush with dreams of changing the country for the better i supported the libertarian party

i worked on the Jon **** for senate team

it was very disaapointing to see how the election turned out, it was even more dissappointing to not be allowed to participate in the debates with the two major parties

what did Spence Abraham - they guy who won that year - do to positively affect this state - he ran off and became energy czar

you can still see those orange Jon **** bumper stickers on telephone poles and signs, 11 years later, somewhat faded but still there

nowadays i avoid politics, id consider myself a social liberal but fiscally conservative

I'm not greedy and do care for the human race - not a Republican

I don't cry everytime I see a prozac commercial, where
the little ball is depressed - not a liberal

I'm aware of the BS we have to wade through everyday... but I can't vote anyway...

RADICAL MIDDLE

Libertarian. No appreciable difference between Democratic and Republican parties; both controlled by $$$

I don't know enough about politics to deem myself a strict republican or democrat. Thought I was a democrat back in the Clinton era, but now I'm pro Bush - so who knows?!?!

Tend to be democratic when it comes to issues such as education - I think we need a lot more money for education and a lot less money for g/d stupid ego driven wars. Tend to be more republican when it comes to wellfare and such. So I suppose all of that rambling means that I dont absolutely affiliate myself with either

Conservative Democrat, as opposed to a Liberal Republican. I just try to vote for the person I think will do the best job.

Don't vote anymore except might make an exception to get Bush out of there. Normally when living here I am a republican because I believe very strongly in my paycheck. However after the bill of goods Bush sold us and the slight of hand he's used to keep us from paying any attention to the state of the economy -- he's gotta go.

Utopian society, I am an anarchist through and through.
In industrialised countries I am squarely socialist/borderline communist. (however in theory only, I realize their shortcomings and the fact that any pure form of these systems will never work.)

Basically in the end I don't give a crap as long as the government stays out of my business.

Democrat, and proud to be. I agree with Harry Truman - If you vote for a Republican you deserve what you get. Unfortunately, I get stuck with it, too. It's amazing what you can do just telling people they pay too much in taxes and by hiding behind blind patriotism.

I'll be voting for General Clark, too, if he makes it through the primaries.

Republican here. I have always said that the basic difference between Republicans and Democrats is that a Republican will always say "I can do this for myself" while a Democrat will always say "What are you going to do for me".

I thought it was John F. Kennedy who said "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country"!

Personally I prefer my favorite quotation from Buddha "There is no afterlife or retribution so feel free to borrow money from your friends"!

I could really care less about any of it, to me, It's all corruption on a grand scale covered with smoke and mirrors, and I'm fine with that, dont really care, cuz it's not gonna change. Never have voted, and never plan on it.

IF, term limits were 1 term, that would put me step closer to the voting booth.

If corporate political contributions were not allowed, I'd think about it.

Private citizens political contributions only, and with a small limit, would level the playing field as well.

But even all of this would just cause some other form the same type of name calling, and denial of responsibility, with out much getting accomplished still. Just more pocket padding of other political members, called inquirys, so whatever...

It's too far gone though, that's my affiliation, but I prefer the word PARTY!!!

I know that a person can contribute a maximum of $2500.00 to a candidate. Does anyone know how much a corporation is allowed to contribute?

You know what we need.......People like everyone on here to start running for office and get the jerks out of there!
