I don't know that I can consider "How do I compromise on everything?" an actual stance.
That's not what Independant means, to me.
It means that your "stances" are a mixed bag and don't match any particular party, it doesn't mean that you compromise principles. How is that difficult to figure out?
The so-called Independent Party is not the same thing as being a political "moderate."
What political positions do "Independents" actually agree upon?
If they are free, regardless of Party platform, to adopt their own respective positions on political matters, then they aren't really a "Party" at all. Why even bother to identify as a member of a Party (which is intended to denote the banding together of people with similar objectives) when the premise of membership denies any unifying common purpose?
For that matter, what political principles do moderates even stand for?
Not all conservatives agree on ALL things. Not all Republicans agree on all things, either. And there is no reason that they should have to. But there ought to be at least a BASIS of common interest and common goal or objective. For if there isn't, then the reason to join a Party disappears.
I don't know, I didn't invent the party aND I don't donate to it. When I say I'm independant, it means independant of joining a corny assed party.
My interest/goal/objective is for people to get over the "my side vs. your side" bullshit which poisons the well of discussion because the discussions to be had are never cordial thus never productive, and maybe, just MAYBE we could all see through the fog that Big Business, Bankers & Wallstreet run America.......not a "party."
