What political group do you affiliate with?

I tried to include as many as I could. If you put down other please specify.

i'm unaffiliated. generally i believe that a balance of both democratic and republican parties is key to a smooth running government. i just cannot agree with any one side.

Well, I'm with the Conservatives here in Canada but I doubt that is really at the same level as the Republicans. I think I might be more sympathetic with the Democrats.

I affiliate with the dems, but that doesn't mean that I tow the party line.

Constitutionalist.

:P Just kidding. I do like a lot of what they believe in, but not as law for this country. They're extremists.

Anyway, I believe political parties are a bunch of crap, as they are today. It's America. It's not Democrats and Republicans. Way too much competition.

But I lean mostly towards republican views.

I'm unaffiliated with a party. Interestingly, I hadn't ever looked up the socialist party until I saw this poll. I agree with so much of it that I am starting to wonder how to break it to my parents that I'm a socialist. :stoned:

Tories, although if the Grits can get themselves together and actually represent my riding, I may actually consider them in around ten years. At the moment they're too used to being in power and the time off is good for them.

I put Republican, but I try to stay out of politics as much as possible. I really don't understand society or human interaction enough to have an educated opinion on the subject, and I think way too many people feel obligated to choose sides without actually knowing anything about them.

That is exactly my sentiment!

I don't really side with any party, but I tend to agree with the Republicans on fiscal issues and teh Dems on social ones.

I want lower taxes, but with the same, or better, social coverage.

Actually, when I referred to social issues a couple posts back, I meant things like elective abortions and gay marriage. I am pretty liberal when it comes to things like sex and whatnot.

As for things like welfare, medical care and whatnot, I prefer to minimize it as much as possible because when I am done school I will likely never be in a situation where i need welfare and I will also likely have a job that gives me phenomenal medical coverage. I don't really care much about the problems of those who are not in the same situation.

I consider myself Republican, but really I like looking at the canidates, where they stand on the issues, and I vote based off of that.

One problem last election, the democratic canidates didn't say how they stand. Their idea of information was to say: "Fed up? Vote Democrat!" (that was literally all they could say) :roll:
