    So then what do you call people on the "far left" who want the government to control everything? Do they not have a name?

    I've been a Democrat since I registered to vote.

    The Scottish Socialist Party is the party I most consider myself a member of, but I'm a paid up member of the Scottish Nationalists, because I think they, as a major party, wll help break up the UK a hell of a lot quicker than a minor party like the Socialists could.
    "I'll govern for all the ambitions of Scotland, and for all of the people who imagine that we can live in a better land. This party, the Scottish party, your party, carries your hope, and we shall carry it carefully, and make the nation proud."
    Alex Salmond, First Minister of Scotland, Scottish National Party

    I'm a conservative-leaning libertarian, or maybe a libertarian-leaning conservative, when I'm not busy playing guitar or teaching armed and unarmed self-defense.

    I maintain my membership in the Republican party so I can vote in the primaries and attempt to influence who runs.

    In the general elections, I vote for whoever most closely represents my intrests and positions. In some cases this means Republican; in other cases I've had to go with Libertarian or Constitution Party; I'd vote for a relatively conservative/libertarian Democrat rather than some Republicans like Lindsey Graham.

    Ideally, I'd like to see the Libertarian Party and Constitution Party holding the reins of government and fighting for their agendas... I think a synthesis of those two ideologies (with neither in full control, mind you) would benefit the USA. The problem is both of those parties can't seem to get their **** together and run viable candidates with a snowball's chance in Arizona.
    I'll probably never live to see that happen, if it ever happens, so pragmatically I vote for whoever seems the least Statist.

    I am not ashamed to be a Republican. I am amused by the implication that I should be.

    I believe the GOP would hugely benefit by the incorporation of certain libertarian principles if the two groups could somehow be prevailed upon to merge.

    As a Republican, can you honestly say you are happy with the direction & tone that your party leaders have taken the GOP in?
    Knowing that any party needs moderates & minority groups (Black/Hispanic/etc) to win any future election, do you honestly feel the GOP is winning any over?

    Well, the GOP has a long way to go in expanding voting constituency by placing everyone in little identity-groups & then making a bunch of promises to members of those "group" the way the DNC has.

    If that's why you think the GOP has been getting it's head handed to it (in national elections since 2006) then I suggest you get better informed about politics.
    (I don't consider myself a strict Democrat but I have not had a real choice in nat'l elections in many years now. To me, the GOP no longer represent conservatives, they represent elderly, white, rural evangelicals & are a dying regional party, at this point)

    The problem is, the Republicans have sold out their principles attempting to woo minority votes. Bush, not only trying to provide cheap labor to his corporate buddies, was also trying to attract Hispanic votes by flushing border control down the toilet.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
