I consider myself Independent but my husband likes to tell me I lean towards conservative/Republican πŸ˜‰

I persionally HATE party lines.  I think it’s riduculous that so many Americans vote strictly by party lines without knowing the candidates’ true positions on pertinent issues.  This goes for everyting from national to local office.  I wish we could do away with party lines and vote based on individual platform.  I do consider myself more conservative, and in order to vote I am registered Republican, but I never vote based on party affiliation.

@kjpugs – good to hear!  I love hearing people say they are active and pay attention to more than the label!

@sooner- I hate party lines. I am liberal, registered independent. I believe in more liberal idealology however for my personal decisions I am more conservative (if that makes sense). For example I am prolife, but do not believe in abortion. While I hold more conservative values for my own life, I disagree with the conservative political decisions which force everyone to live the same way….

I really think that party lines have become so mixed up and people do not even really understand what it means to be conservative or liberal.

Liberals: believe in systematic change through a evolutionary process. this does not mean changing the entire current system but just modifications

Conservatives: believe little or no change is needed in the current system.

 

With that being said, I also think that people vote based on what their family traditionally beieves, because of the complexity of the political system and the numerous debates. So often people vote without actually knowing anything about what the party stands for (even if they think they do), which is such a disappointment.

Right leaner here!  But my bff is a die-hard democrat! 

What we’re both proud of is our wanting to work to make our country better.  And doing SOMETHING about it rather than doing nothing is all American!

Hugs to both sides πŸ™‚

Typical Conservative Southerner! There are times I do not agree with the republicans but that is because in Politics people can be swayed for personal gain and well that is happening lots in our country today! I just hope that this country can come to a conclusion over party lines and make positive decisions for our country or we are all in trouble!

I’m conservative!!! But Canadian, so our right wing is a lot more left than the American right wing.

 

That being said, I also find that many people in my age group are more Liberal, and sometimes feel like a lone ranger!

What’s awesome is my bff (and maid of honor) and I have NEVER gotten ever in a political arguement.  We love and respect each other!  She’s also my son’s Godmother btw!

This thread is making me happy!  I’m really glad to hear so many bees out there really care about the future we’ve got in the US and that you all are smart voters!
