    I used to be a solid Republican, but the Bush years pushed me to my breaking point. I did vote in the '08 Republican primaries, but that was only because of Ron Paul. I found the mainstream candidates in the party to all be equally distasteful. I'm a small "L" libertarian. The LP is too extremist and dogmatic for my tastes, so I am a man without a home in terms of politics.

    I have voted for both Republican candidates & Democrats for national office but have not voted (nationally) for a Republican since the early 1970's so I would call my party affiliation Democrat. (just like Will Rogers responded once when asked what political party he belonged to, he said: "I'm not a member of any organized political party.......I'm a Democrat.")

    Other:

    I would consider myself neither a Republican nor Democrat as I hate the limited choices they offer. I do vote more for Republicans, but wouldnt categorize myself as that. I value pragmatism over partisanship though, so I would vote for the right Democrat or other party.

    I am registered as a Democrat so I can vote in my state's primaries. However, I often vote for moderate and libertarian leaning Republicans in state and local elections.

    If anything, I would consider myself a libertarian leaning Democrat.

    I'll tend to vote libertarian, though I do agree some of it is a bit extreme. But it's the only way to apply pressure, not voting the parties just stop caring about you, supporting the status quo (i.e. R or D) they just take it as part of their base and don't change. If you want to swing the main parties one way or the other, you have to do something to apply pressure as the status quo will not change on its own (this is where the stupidity of buying into "hope and change" rhetoric comes in). Threaten their power, and that's really where the utility of the third parties can come in...if they're allowed to participate. In the end, I guess I can't stand not voting and I won't support the Republocrats; so I'm stuck with some form of 3rd party, and the LP is the closest to my own ideology.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Democrat and have always voted Democrat in Presidential politics, except for my one major mistake in 1984 when I voted for Ronald Reagan.

    I agree that we need to stop supporting the lesser of two evils. Being slightly less pro big government than the other guy isn't good enough for anyone who really believes in libertarian ideals. I did vote LP in the main election in '08 and probably will continue to do so in the forseeable future, but I refuse to join the party or call myself a member of it due to their doctrine.

    I am pretty sure that is not his point.
