I know some people are liberitarians, Republicans, and Democrats. I just want to know why you picked that party out of the 500 parties in the US?

Please try not to fight, only debate, be resonable, and sensible. Thanks.

That's asking a lot!

I don't belong to a political party, myself, but I imagine people pick their party to be in line with their own personal beliefs. I guess it could be that they "were raised by Republicans and will always be Republican", but more likely they pick a party based on that party's stance on major issues, like abortion, the economy, religion, etc.

I think this is a great way to find which party actually fits a person:

Thanks for the quiz.

The thing is I don't if I wanna vote(b/c the county has me registered as a "Democrat", I'm not one. I'm just me. I'll vote for a Backstreet Boy when they run for office ya' know. LOL
I'm not so sure I wanna vote next term for President or even local elections since most of the ballots seemed to be rigged(Senators, Mayors, etc.), unless we're talking state issues or the lowest of the low on the City Council and even then it may be possible. So I was just curious about everyone on PTS and ATS.

I am register with no affiliations.

We were Republicans while my husband was in the service for 22 years, after that we stay Republican until 2004, that is the year we voted democrat for the first time.

At this point I will be very careful how to cast my next vote.

I'm a registered Republican and have been for 25 years. I became a republican because my father told me as a small time business man/manufacturer it would behove me to be in the GOP. He was wrong!!

Now I'm a RINO and proud of it. I would like to bring the GOP back to being the party of Lincoln once again. I feel now the GOP has been coopted by the Religious extreme right wing, with no place for desent or even inquiry.

I just took the test and I'm like Gandhi. Who knew? I am not fond of the toga or bald look but I do wear wire rimmed glasses. Anyway, it was a fun test and it's worth a try "just for fun".

Ok so I am a libertarian with inclination to totalitarianism?

I guess I stay as libertarian.

I am not a member of any NZ political party. At the last election I voted for the ACT party. For the benfit of people outside of NZ heres a link.

I vote for who my conscience told me to. I think people who vote along party lines blindy are foolish. I dont agree with all of the ACT policys but they were the lesser of all the evils.

Just read "US political partys" Mods feel free to get rid of this post if its off topic other wise it can inform members about my 10 cents.
