    Re: How many times (if any) have you changed your political affiliation?

    I've never had two feet into a political party, I've voted for Democratic, Republican, Green, and Libertarian candidates. Ideologically I used to be much, much more conservative, then pretty damn straight liberal, and now if I could pigeon hole myself it would be more of a center-left person with a dash of libertarian...

    ...or something.

    I registered at 18 as Republican but now I consider myself a Tea Party member instead being part of the establish GOP.

    I never felt obligated to any particular party but I voted mostly republican for most of my life.

    But currently, I cannot in good conscience align with them at all. Neither can I support the democrat ideals all the way.

    I'm seriously considering starting my own, "fishing party." Politics seem to be misaligned with me overall, now days.

    This is how I feel generally. It's why I'm registered Independent.

    Re: How many times (if any) have you changed your political affiliation?

    I used to vote Republican, till I had a Republican tell me that he didn't care if poor people had to eat dog food, so long as he didn't have to pay for it. After that, I just decided that I didn't want to align myself with that type of thinking, because I didn't feel that way. I've always been the kind of person that, if I have 2 hamburgers and somebody is hungry, they're gonna get one of them. I don't need millions of dollars, cuz you can't take it with you.

    I don't vote strict party line, anyway. I vote for the candidate. That's why, for the last 10 years, I've labeled myself as an independent.

    If you have, how many times.
    I cast my first presidential vote back in 64 for Goldwater and tended to vote Republican at the national level and Democratic at the local level. That is until 92 and since then I have voted for whom I considered the best candidate and for the most part, they tended to be third party candidates.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I could identify at least half a dozen people on this board that I believe have that attitude, they're just not willing to state it so bluntly.

    Once, this last election cycle I switched from Republican to Libertarian. I mulled over that decision for years, not so happy about the all over the place message as it stands but they are more solid on the constitution than either major party which is something I agree with. My positions haven't changed, but neither major party is worth a damn in my opinion minus a few bright lights here and there.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
