    I would suggest you register to vote as an independent, you wont be able to vote in the primary's, but you wont have to affiliate yourself with either of the Dems or Pubs, who are one in the same anyway.

    You should take your time and do your research. There are sites like that but all are biased. Read what people have to say on all sides and decide for yourself.

    Some questions to ponder:

    Do you like left wing politics such as Obama with his policies of big Government takeovers, massive tax hikes and massive government spending and equal outcomes for all regardless of talent or effort, or do you prefer the Republican ideals of smaller government, lower taxes and fiscal responsibility.

    Would you prefer the GOP vision of an opportunity society in which those that work hard, save and invest have a real opportunity for advancement or the Democratic ideal of equal outcomes and big government to take care of everyone in exchange for lower opportunities for advancement?

    Don't assign yourself a political direction...that's a big part of this country's problem.

    Coupe of quick questions to help you see where you stand:

    Do you think the highest wage earners should pay more taxes?

    Do you think any of these three would be better than a strictly private insurance healthcare system - universal healthcare, a public option or a mandate that everyone purchase health insurance?

    Do you believe, to lower the deficit, that America should cut military spending along with domestic spending? Do you think to cut the deficit we should only cut or do you favor combining cuts with increases in revenue through taxation increases?

    Is Barack Obama a Muslim or a Christian?

    pro-life- God does not want anyone killed no matter the circumstances.

    I believe all hand guns unless you are military or law enforcement be banned. I do think we should own shot-guns as we have a right to defend our house.

    I believe if a person has 2 million their is no reason he can not give the guy next to him some money who only has 200 dollars. No matter what people say we are all not allowed the same chances. Chances are the rich guy got it dishonestly anyway.

    I believe the welfare system needs reworked but not done away with.

    I believe we should not be in other people's countries we can develop a cell phone the size of a wallet but can not find alternative fuel sources yeah right.

    I believe we need stronger FDA and animal abuse laws even on our so called food.

    I believe a few companies should not be able to own most of our grocery shopping items just put it under different names.

    I believe wall street needs stricter rules and deravitives outlawed.

    I believe clear channel should not be allowed to own as many stations as they do.

    I believe we should be able to choose from more than 1 or 2 electric, water, and tv companies.

    I believe walmart and other companies that take jobs overseas should be taxed an unbelievable amount on their imports.

    I believe a universal healthcare system is better than what we have now.

    those are some of the things i believe not sure what other issues are needed.

    You're a liberal. Welcome to the forum...

    By the way, you could have said absolutely anything after this and I still would have responded the same way...

    But he kinda represents the problem with American politics.

    He thinks abortion is wrong and ALSO things that Wall Street need to be minded. There is NO party for someone who thinks like that. He'll be ostracized by Pubs for even thinking that regulation is necessary and ostracized by Dims for thinking that abortion is wrong.



    Not for nothing...he's pretty much an average American voter. Voting isn't and shouldn't be a personality test.
