    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    We do in in every election for magistrates, county judge, sheriff, city council, and then again at all the state level positions, so unless you are democrat or republican you miss the primary

    In High School, up until Senior year, I was pretty hard core Republican. Then I started to see things differently and aligned more closely with the Democratic Party (though never registered as one). Now I'm more with the Independence Party of Minnesota. Did some phone calls for them a couple of years ago.

    I used to consider myself a Republican until I realized most of the party isn't any better than the Democrats. Examples: (John McCain, Mitt Romney, George Bush, Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham, Frank Wolf, Bob McDonnell and many more)

    I registered Republican at age 18 and I've never changed it. In my state, there's not much point in registering Democrat unless you live on the coast or one of a handful of other blue counties.


    However, I've been disgruntled with the GOP for quite a long time, and I am far from being a party-line person. I'm as likely to vote Libertarian or Constitution Party as GOP in a given election, unless I approve of the specific candidate in question. I occasionally vote for a Dem when the Dem is clearly the better candidate.

    Along the way I've viewed myself as very conservative, slightly conservative, libertarian, quasi-libertarian, and independent centrist at various times.

    Once for sure, and the rest is just details. Sometimes I vote Democrat locally and in the state, many times I vote Republican. Our Democrats are not the base of the Democratic Party, however. So, really, when I vote Democrat, it is so I can escape the Tea Partiers, which for some reason, exist here.

    I got a bit caught up in Obama's 08 campaign, then soon after his inauguration concluded that he's not a secular messiah and nothing can save this country from congress/dumb voters. I've despised both parties since.
