    I'm not sure what centrist means, to be honest.

    I'll pick libertarian, but in reality I'm more of a left-leaning libertarian?

    On the "wedge issues" I'm all over the place, so I guess Centrist-esque with a lean leftward, but with some strong libertarian leanings. So, I'll rack it up as libertarian, as I'm definitely on the libertarian side of the libertarian-authoritarian axis.

    You're still upset that you can't win the arguments?

    I like that I've gotten under your skin.

    There is no vote for independent???

    There is such a wide spectrum, to only give a few options is flawed.

    I think "centrist, but not libertarian," encompasses most independents.

    Conservative
    Being a conservative is why I left the Democratic Party, I left when the Radical Loon element took over, I still support Labor, Unions, Legal Drugs, Legal Prostitution but I'll be damned if I will support all that other slobbering slopping social liberal do-gooding ass kissing garbage sh!t that has infected todays New Democrat, Blinky Pelosi & Weasel Reid make my Bowels loosen, just looking at a picture of Barbara Boxer makes me vomit.

    Independent doesn't describe your politics, it has more to do with your faith int he existing parties and their management.

    There is a lot of ground in between... my preference is independent, i.e. vote for the person not the platform..

    I am comfortable with it, even though I am left leaning with strong liberatarian tendencies, there have been plenty of democrats that I would never vote for, otoh have voted republican several times.

    Perhaps non affiliation is a better word....

    I vote many times for democrats in local elections, there are still a lot of sensible (non loon) democrats out there but we seldom hear of them, The Obama Democrat Media trys to hide them.

    Yes and may I add support issues independent of what a party wishes you to support. This country would be far better off if less people supported the political party platforms. Take that platform support away and they end up weaker ... which is what we need IMO.

    I think Patters (maybe he can verify) intentionally didn't use "Democrat" or "Republican" specifically to stay away from the partisan thing. I think he wanted us to choose our philosophies on politics beyond party.

    Anyway, I voted libertarian, but I am not wholly convinced that some libertarian philosophies would work in our world. I am usually conservative leaning libertarian over authoritarian, though I sympathize sometimes with leftist opinions.

    i have to vote democrat more often than i would prefer ... my town government is all democrats and the state - Rhode Island is heavy democrat also. I don't have to vote democrat of course but if i want my vote to count towards something then I must vote in the democratic primary. I have never voted in the GOP primary in my life - too bad we cannot vote in each at primary time. In my town our primary election is the main election as our GOP party could not even win a school election if it had to.

    In North Providence they have a very successful three party system, that party being the Criminal/extortion party.. they reward their efforts by a free vacation to "Club Fed".

    It is a long way from University Heights, which is now a whole lot better, to a home overlooking the Atlantic in Boothbay..

    Actually said liberal, because of the surroundings. I'm finding that in today's parlance "independent" most often means "no coherent world-view," and on this forum "centrist" would be a good description of the people, like me, that the locals think are on the left.

    Regardless, I suppose it's a public service to sort myself by the local surroundings, so the board's RFID tags will sort me into the right slot ;)

    I know, I shouldn't complain so much, I've been a lucky man, the sun is setting, I wonder if there is really anything else after this.
