which are you and why?
"how do you expect your subjects to follow if the king does not lead"
For many years i have considered myself republican mainly because i supported Barry Goldwater in the '64 election and if you listen to Barry Goldwater talk about where the party is going to go he is exactly right, but since his passing i have found myself more and more at odds with the people who get up on stage and purport to be Republicans and get up and just spew whatever they think the masses want to hear no matter what they believe
Yet i cannot and will not support Obama my main concern is he has gone to the LGBT and asked for there vote and in '08 he got it in large numbers and yet the democrats controlled the House of Representitives and the Senate and when Obama was asked about the democrats submitting a bill on legalizing gay marriage his answer was marriage is between a man and a woman, for me he has betrayed those people he voted for.
So in essence im an independant
Are you referring to registration or do you mean which party most closely conforms to my beliefs?
DADT was a necessary evil and I think it's disingenuous for gays to think Clinton was bad for doing it.
The premise of this thread seems to be a false dichotomy.
I'm a lifelong republican because I am against slavery. Republicans got rid of slavery, and democrats want to bring it back in the form of income taxes. I understand that the economy is not a zero sum game. You can lower taxes and have a higher revenues. Look up the Laugher curve. It should be a free country, and you shouldn't have to pay any taxes. That is my belief. This country did fine before we had an income tax.

Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men. Boondock Saints
Neither, because they are both corrupt, bought and paid for by corporate interests.Democratic or Republican? which are you and why?
Except for Ron Paul.
I'm an independent libertarian, but would vote Republican for the first time ever if Ron Paul ran on their presidential ticket. He won't, because they are corrupt and won't nominate an honest man or woman, only corporate stooges.
"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you. . . you may know that your society is doomed."
