So, with all this healthcare business going around pissing everyone off, I’m curious. What is the general party ratio on Weddingbee? I’ll just put the biggies as options, and if this gets a lot of feedback, I’ll expand.
Personally, I am a very liberal Democrat.

I normally don’t like to discuss politics…but by looking at the poll, you can tell which one I voted for.

I consider myself liberal but independent. Thus far I have only voted Democrat, but I would have no objection to voting for a candidate of another party if they were, after my evaluation, my choice for the best option.

There is no option up there for me! I consider myself to be a true moderate/independent. I don’t like to identify with a party anymore because I feel like politics have become too much about which ‘side’ you are on. People are no longer willing to give a little and admit that their party is not universally right, and the opposing party is not universally wrong. Personally, I think the party system the way it currently is will (continue to) be the downfall of the US.
I have both conservative and liberal ideologies, depending on what the issue is.

I don’t think the party system is so strong anymore. I go a little left, I go a little right. I vote on the issues that matter to me—not party loyalty.

I generally don’t discuss politics either, however I consider myself a conservative democrat.
The bill does adversely affect the industry that I work in and could mean trouble for my job, so while it passing is a good thing, I truly hope that it is as beneficial as intended, so if I do lose my job, it will be for a greater good. I just take everything that is a government initiative with a grain of salt.

I’m kind of there with you, @lilyfaith. Essentially a Democrat, but very, very liberal.

If I get a few more comments about it, I’ll add an option for moderate/independant. I just initially wanted to see how people were with the two extremes.

I often identify as a liberal Democrat, and generally vote Democrat, but I tend to lean a bit further left then the Democratic party. I’m really more of a socialist.

I’ll vote when there are more options than two evils. 😛

I’m with rosiebear. I voted Democrat because that is how I typically vote, but on the political spectrum I’m really more of a socialist. Or, at least, mid way between democrat and socialist.

I typically vote Democrat, but there are a few areas/topics where I wouldn’t necessarily side with the democratic views; sometimes I don’t consider myself to be very liberal.
Like VirginiaMarie said, I go a little left, I go a little right.
Post # 14
I sometimes like to say that I’m so far left I can’t see the right. ;p I have mostly voted democrat out of a lack of real choice. Frankly, I think this country needs a 10+ party system like many countries in Europe. There is no real choice in a 2 party system.

No option up there for me either. I’m socially liberal, but fiscally conservative. FI’s libertarian ways have rubbed off on me!

FI and I are both purple…he’s more of a violet red and I’m more of a royal purple though 🙂
