    For those that are part of a political party. Do you fully agree with your party's platform? If not what parts of it do you not agree with?

    Libertarian. I wish there was a real party and not just a platform.

    I agree with most Libertarian ideals.

    I was once a democrat. Because my parents were. And hey, Clinton seemed to be doing alright...

    Then, after I got outa college, I was a republican. But I soon learned that despite the rhetoric, republicans were just democrats with guns.

    I discovered the libertarian party. And I drank deeply of the coolaid. The NAP made sense. Freedom made sense. I was a minarchist. I believed in less government..I still do. But I've given up on the libertarians. Sadly, it's not my belief that they're ever going to amount to anything as a party. They can't even decide on a platform. Their foremost member, Ron Paul, won't even run as one. Why? Because they party is more at odds with itself, than with any other political party. In addition, the NAP, when taken to its logical conclusion, means anarchy. Which is where the two main camps sit in that party...anarcho capitalism, and anarcho communism.

    And so I am bereft of a party. I cherry pick other parties. Which is working out much easier for, idiologically...but that amounts to a small hill of beans without anyone within government, or aspiring to join those ranks, who represents my ideologies.

    Interesting post. I enjoyed reading how much you changed and the reasons for change. I can't say I disgaree with much of what you said here either, although I don't think most Libertarians are anarchists.

    I was a Republican by some sort of default - and when I became more involved with politics I realized I didn't identify with most of their platform.
    Then I looked into other platforms and discovered I was just the odd man out.

    And I refused to be stuck with labels that didn't suit me and just did away with the concept of 'fitting in' altogether.

    I think I'm registered as a Democrat. I don't really know though, the last time I voted in a primary was 2008, and I don't remember if I registered as part of a party when I moved.

    I agree with slightly more of the democratic platform than I do the republican.

    The full platform is a very lengthy document. Here's a summary of principles from the Texas GOP platform:

    1. Strict adherence to the original intent of the Declaration of Independence and U.S. and Texas Constitutions. Yes
    2. The sanctity of human life, created in the image of God, which should be protected from fertilization to natural death. Not Necessarily
    3. Preserving American and Texas Sovereignty and Freedom. Yes
    4. Limiting government power to those items enumerated in the U.S. and Texas Constitutions. Yes
    5. Personal Accountability and Responsibility. Big Yes
    6. Self-sufficient families, Yes founded on the traditional marriage of a natural man and a natural woman. Meh
    7. Having an educated population, with parents having the freedom of choice for the education of their children. Big Yes
    8. Americans having the right to be safe in their homes, on their streets, and in their communities, and the unalienable right to defend themselves. Yes
    9. A free enterprise society unencumbered by government interference or subsidies. Yes
    10. Honoring all of those that serve and protect our freedom. Yes
    11. “The laws of nature and nature’s God” as our Founding Fathers believed. Yes

    I'm a little more economically conservative than the average Democrat/Liberal. It comes with old age and a sizable bank account. However, I think for the most part with the exception of a few things (certain social programs) here and there I'm a pretty solid Democrat.

    Some yes, some no. Unfortunately, since there are no conservative parties in this country, there isn't any party anywhere that I could join and agree with the majority of the platform. All of the parties suck.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
