This could be the most ridiculous thread I have ever made. It should go without saying. We independents have come under attack for declaring ourselves. Some seem to feel that if we agree with the Democratic Party on an issue we have been "outed" as liberals. Aside from the fact that this is just stupid, it is not true. Following is the Wiki definition of an independent voter. Independent (voter) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia An independent may be variously defined as a voter who votes for candidates and issues rather than on the basis of a political ideology or partisanship; a voter who does not have long-standing loyalty to, or identification with, a political party; a voter who does not usually vote for the same political party from election to election; or a voter who self-describes as an independent.
