I talk to friends and coworkers about the usual stuff-- the weather, what's on TV, politics... and it got me thinking. Many people are Republicans because they don't want to be Democrats, Democrats because they don't want to be Republicans. I know some that would vote Libertarian, but think they would just be throwing their vote away. In almost all cases, people don't agree with most of their own party's politics. A friend of mine is almost the ideal Democrat, but is against abortion so votes Republican. Another would literally need a party formed around them to be happy. I know not everyone can be completely happy with the wide range of issues a party deals with, but they could be happier. I just started a new site, Politicl.com. The point is to rally enough people around a common set of issues and values to influence the big two parties and improve the system. To make it our own again. Politicl.com isn't there yet, it needs you to grow. Let me know what you think.
