I am registered Republican. I have been registered Republican for much of my life, although I started out as a Democrat, and the first person I cast a vote for in a Presidential election was Franklin D. Roosevelt. What a mistake. I registered Democrat because my dad was a Republican. And we argued all the time about politics. I thought to myself, if he's a Republican, I don't want to be. Later, I learned the difference, and came to realize that my dad was right. So I switched and registered Republican. I am pro-life. Only two parties have a pro-life platform. Republican and Constitution parties. I believe in small and limited government, and low taxes. On that I would be in agreement with three parties. Republican, Constitution and Libertarian. Yet, since joining here yesterday I have found resistance to many of my views. That is probably because I have the audacity to question my own party. I will not blindly follow anyone, no matter what party they are in. I don't support a Republican because he/she is a Republican. In the last Republican Presidential nomination process, I supported Ron Paul. I whole heartedly agree with his foreign policy. We need to stop meddling in the affairs of other countries, creating mistrust everywhere we go in the world. That doesn't seem to be the foreign policies of most I have encountered here. A lot of the problems we are having today is because we have kicked sand in other people's sandbox. And we have been doing that for a long time. This does not appear to be the majority Republican view here. We have been warned about foreign entanglements. And we can see what foreign entanglements has done to our country. So, am I, or am I not a Republican?
