    So this is my first time ever writing on one of these, but I need some help with a prject I am doing for my US government class. So if you could please take the time to answer these 4 short questions for me it would really help. Your answers don't need to be any more than one sentence, but if you'd like to take the time and answer them with more than that, please feel free. Thanks!

    1. What party are you registered as and why did you choose to register as this?

    2. How do you see your party as different or better than the others?

    3. Have you ever voted for a candidate belonging to a different party? If so, why?

    4. If you'd like, you may list your name, occupation, and ethnic make-up.

    Thanks again.

    Haylee, is this for high school? AP? Is it just an assignment on surveys or are you gathering data for a project?

    Yes. It's a high school AP class. It's just one assignment. We need to get answers from 10 republicans and 10 democrats and then write a conclusion on what we can assume from the responses.

    Republican, because I am a conservative. While our Republicans don't always embody that ideology, the do so more often than Dems

    In terms of the parties themselves, I see very little difference in practice. When it comes to votes most politicians will sacrafice the ideals they claim to hold regardless of party affiliation. I think a conservative ideology is better than a liberal one, because it is more objective and logical.

    I'm a Brit, so I dont know if I count, but:

    1: ALL POLITICIANS ARE LIERS and so I would never join a political party, but if forced to choose, then prob. the Green Party or something like that. However, if forced to choose Dem or Rep, then I would go Dem.

    2: Green Parties have sensibly come to the conclusion that economic growth is not necessarily good - that makes them different from virtually all other parties - and in my opinion (and the planet's too probably) better than the rest who seem to espouse greed, consumption and money.

    3: I have never voted, because just like in the USA, unless u are a fan of the big 2 (or 3 in the UK) parties then there is no point because we don't have proportional representation.
