    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.

    Yawn.

    It's probably just a co-inkydink that Bulletin Board "Moderates" and "independents" always wind up under Obama's desk

    CrusaderFrank...why don't you jump off a high cliff with a heavy anchor tied to your legs?

    What a walking piece of turd-muffin you are...if a person isn't a Far Right Wing Nutjob they are useless in your eyes.

    Get a life you blowhard!

    Could well be true, but tell me this, what have your politics had to offer independents other than complaints, and putting down everyone elses ideas?

    I wonder what are your feelings towards the self-proclaimed Tea Baggers?

    I'm an independent voter that has the ideology that the government should keep its nose out of everybody's business and that it doesn't know any more about how any foreign country should be run than it does this one. The pretty much eliminates all Republicans and Democrats.

    If the alternative is to be found under the desks of Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly...

    Check out this thread. This effort at civility by me turned into the kind of fiasco that I anticipate this one will turn into.

    http://www.usmessageboard.com/politics/115400-does-the-political-definition-of-a-teabagger-have-to-do-with-the-sexual-definition.html

    It is not that I dislike either political party, and most of my friends are partisan one way or another. The far right loves to pull independent guys like me into their mess, and label us Dems. There is nothing wrong with Dems, except that I am not one. I am Independent. What fools, these conservatives, right-wingers, or Tea Baggers are, they should be trying to persuade us into their thinking. I have come to dislike them just because of how I have been treated in USMB. I do not like this as I try to stay open-minded to new ideas.
