    Are you D, R or truly an I

    Study suggests many 'Independents' are just kidding themselves.


    Kind of a reflection of money pushing the process down to only 2 choices, IMHO.


    I'll shame the devil and tell the truth, my bias hangs toward the left these days.

    Given the choices today, WYGD? :dunno:
    The definition of insanity is expecting a different result from a process repeated, and 'trickle down golden showers' was tried in earnest, definitively failing in October of 2008.

    I used to be more right wing. I just dislike Romney as a person. I disliked Clinton as a person.

    It would be nice if we did what France does. Instead of this insanity of an electoral college where only about 8 states are going to decide this thing, we have a multi-party election where you have run-offs until one party gets 50%+1.

    You too, eh? What Ya Gonna Do? :dunno:

    Sucks having just the two choices. Too bad the Republicans are clinging to that trickle-down bullshit.

    Imagine a world where ideas were discussed above the monotonous drone of the labeling.

    Interesting test. My results came out pretty much as I expected:

    "Your data suggest a moderate automatic identification with Republicans compared to Democrats."

    Meh, no consideration for Libertarian. :p
