    What Political Party Would You Consider Yourself Now A Member Of?

    Would anyone care to disclose their national political party affiliation?
    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.")

    Very early in the poll here but.....so far......2 self-identified liberals & 1 self-identified Moderate have no problems saying they consider themselves Democrats.
    (I'll be interested in watching for how many members will admit to being Republicans, who report other "political leanings" ....such as conservative)
    Edit:
    One vote for Republican .........but anonymous.

    Devil, when did you become a moderate? Did you fall and hit your head on the ground this morning? If your views are those of a moderate, then God help us all.

    I left the Republican party a few years ago. They abandoned their fiscally conservative principles in favor of special interests and big government. Until they return to their principles, they can no longer count me as "one of theirs". I'd say I fall more in line with the Libertarian party than I do with the Republican party, but I've never been one to "toe the line" of any party.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    I've never been a big "pigeon-hole" believer either but I'm fairly conservative fiscally, believe in the death penalty & an individual's right to carry firearms (within reason) & am for strong national defense. On the other side I believe in a woman's right to choose & affirmative action........., so I reported Moderate as far as political leanings.

    I have yet to find a political party with the intentions of doing the best thing for the well being of this country, so I do not affiliate myself with any political party.

    I do, however, share ideology with Conservative and Libertarian views.
