    Do you believe in them no matter what? Like if they told you to take up arms against the government, would you do that? I guess what I am asking is if you have a breaking point.
    too many citizens have placed their party allegiance above that loyalty given to their country

    A person that stands on principles should never run for congress. A mature adult that likes to be part of a winning team will work 100 times better than a good man that likes his party to lose so that he can feel good about himself.

    Yes, sir. I agree with my party 100% of the time. That's the whole point. Otherwise you should be independent or unaffiliated.
    We need people of principle to run this country. It's time we kicked out the politicians.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Yup. It's much, much more about who has that little R beside their name. That's all that matters to her. I honestly think, if Bush told her to, she'd vote for Kim Jong Un if he had a little R beside his name. She is really scary.

    The problem is, though, that most people of principle can't afford to run for any major office. Tens of millions of dollars it costs to run for President. Common people, people who could really turn this country around, could never come up with that kind of money.

    Re: Do you fully agree with your Party's Platform?

    In general terms, I agree with the Liberal Party platform but I don't like that they tend to start from the position that business is automatically not to be trusted with the environment. I say, give business access to relevant information and let them go until they f*ck up then regulate the hell out of the irresponsible brats. They also tend to be federalists, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but Canada is such a diverse nation that some areas can't possibly be properly represented in a national parliament. Power, in my liberal viewpoint, should be as local as possible so it can be watched and held accountable.

    I'm a Green and do agree with most of the Written platform. Environmentalists, treehuggers, anti-Big Corporate, pro labor, Green energy, No nukes, Power to the people and not the Monster Money Machines, and the Green platform automatically acknowledges AGM, and the necessary policies and fortitude to mitigate the problems. I equate Greens with labor in the Corporate vs. Labor warfare that has been going on since Charlie Chaplin's era. Most people don't know that.

    If I was an elected official, yes. As a private citizen I don't have to be loyal to the party. I guess I just say that to make a point. I hate disloyal Republicans that cause the party to be ineffective.

    535 people standing on 535 different sets of principles doesn't accomplish anything in a Republic. If we had a dictatorship, a personal of principle would be good.

    With a democratic-republic you have to have a majority vote to accomplish anything. People with principles are obstructionist and should be voted out when the next election comes around unless their voter base likes it when the opposite party beats them. It makes no sense to vote for a Republican if you want the democrats to get their way.

    Re: Do you fully agree with your Party's Platform?

    i voted the party is at my house. i'd say BYOB, but ****, that's probably not even necessary. just handle your ****, is all i ask.

    as for political parties, meh. if i could push a button and eliminate that system, i might. i would DEFINITELY eliminate gerrymandering, though. that's a big contributor to all of the idiocy.
