    I don't think it would help, because people who ascribe a person beliefs without asking them about their beliefs are going to do that anyway, no matter what is next to your "lean" here.

    If your a conservative.....then your not an independent......your a conservative.

    If the Tea Party doesn't want to be Republican they should try not voting for one or just become a third party.

    'Independent' and 'unaffiliated' are groups lairs and/or those without the balls to take a position on any issue take. IMO they should both be deleted, not expanded.

    Oh, there's plenty of "Independent" folks who shout first before thinking.

    There were a plethora of Tea Party candidates that beat establishment Republicans across the country in theRepublican primaries in 2010.......who then went on to win on Nov. 2, 2010--The Largest Political Ass Whooping in History.

    They could beat Republican after Republican.......Democrat after Democrat.......and the liberals will still call them Republicans......

    .........as they call anyone who doesnt get in line behind their whacko agenda and insane views.
