    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    ​Both republicans and democrats are hell bent on destroying the USD. A curse on both of them.

    I am an independent but must admit occasionally over time the democrats get something right or do something for all Americans. In Philly you kinda haveta register democrat as the city has been controlled by democrats forever it seems if you need assistance with certain issues. But we have voted for many republicans too. I know one republican president who did a really good thing and when I ask no republican diehard seems to know. It's not Lincoln - he certainly did a really tough and good thing.
    Wanna make America great, buy American owned, made in the USA. We do.

    Independent who believes the Democratic party is seditious and should be abolished.
    You will rue forever that you ever supported the post-2007 democrat party.

    I was registered Republican for years, but I switched to Independent a couple of years ago. That cuts me out of most of our local elections, which are almost always decided in the primaries.
    I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

    Proud life long Independent. Both Democrat and republican parties should be disbanded since IMO both are corrupt.
    Currently plotting the overthrow of the world; unfortunately I have no idea how to do it.

    Independent and proud of it!

    Conservative Republican who believes an "Independent" is someone who can't make up his mind so pretends to be above it all.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
    Robert A. Heinlein
