    Ive been here long enough and Im still trying to figure out which way USMB leans. Or does it float this way and that? So....which party are you? Or none of the above (independent)?
    And again..nobody can see how you vote, nor do you need to explain why.

    I will state upfront I am independent. Ill vote Repub or Dem. Whomever I feel will do the best job gets my vote.

    You're dependent on a third party?

    I was at one time, but those days are long gone.

    I've never had to register for a party in order to vote because my state laws don't require it. If I had to choose, it would be Democrat :blues:

    Yeah, not a member of any party until I find one that is pro guns, social security, choice, porn, gay marriage, military, right to die and pollution controlls while being anti states rights and out of my personal business.

    Not the way I see it. 'Independent' is way too vague to mean anything these days. Everyone seems to claim they are an independent, but it's really meaningless. I'm aligned with a form of the libertarian party that no longer exists and so are many others, so I could be classified as a 'libertarian' (with a lower-case 'L'). But if someone wants to call me an independent, it won't bother me. I just won't answer to it.
