Why are you a republican or democrat (or independent)?

Just our of curiousity.

Is it because that's how you were raised and strictly vote along the party lines no matter what? Are you an intelligent voter that pays attention to what's happening with this country?

I vote republican because they stand for family values, economy growth, small businesses growth which is essential for the economy, and they respect the protected right of religion and right to bear arms. I also believe in states rights over big government.

What do democrats vote democrat for? Free phones, free handouts, rights to kill babies, racism, big brother controlling every facet of your life? Please explain your intentions democrats?

Because the democratic party that was once respected is no longer the democratic party. Democrats from 50 years ago would be republican.

I've posted this before.

I'm a supporter of capitalism and private-owned enterprise over government-owned industry. I believe a free market is the engine of a progressive society, and the invisible hand can not only drive forward the quality of life for everybody in that market, it can also empower a nation to the extraordinary extent that it can serve as a powerful guide for other nations attempting to do the same.

At the same time, I believe that there are in-built defects of capitalism -- it is a competition, after all. And you're going to have people who win, and people who don't win. People who thrive, people who get by, and people who struggle. It's impossible to have a capitalist system where you don't also have poverty, homelessness, unemployment, starvation... So I do believe in a safety net provided by those who are getting by to help out those who aren't. This does necessitate more collective action through the government, but that's why I also believe in separation of powers, checks and balances, and absolute government accountability and hate any organizations (including the White House itself) that resist any of these.

Capitalism in general is an inequality creator, which isn't inherently bad but inequality can have some poisonous defects, some of which I highlighted in the above paragraph. Inequality can, for instance, put people in extreme positions of power over others, and allow some entities to openly abuse others. In these instances I favor strong, reasonable, accountable regulation of these entities to protect the least of our brothers and sisters.

I considered myself conservative when I was much, much younger. I supported a few Republicans, but again this wasn't for a very long time since I was so young and my support was typically tepid of somebody my age then. I never really affiliated myself with the GOP, though, because I was always very pro-gay and I disliked that the GOP wasn't that way.

Around the turn of the century, my views became more liberal and I evolved into the person you know, more or less, now.

I'm not really sure why I started out so conservative. Part of it is because I was running with a lot of religious fundamentalists at the time and that's the way all the fish were swimming, but also I was in college and everybody seemed to be liberal, and if you hadn't noticed, there's obviously a streak in me that wants to stand up for the minority view, which is probably why I was a religious fundamentalist for a while, too.

I sure did change, though. I'm so much more comfortable with my liberalism. It's a much better match for me, psychologically, and better describes what I would consider to be my more mature view of the world.

I guess I'd call myself a Libertarian. Generally that means I'd tend to side with Republicans on more stuff than I would Democrats, but that's changing pretty quickly here as the party is starting to really dig its heels in on some social issues. That's usually stuff I can't give a shit about until one of the candidates opens their fat mouths, and then makes me feel embarrassed to support such a turd.

I haven't voted for a Republican president in the last 3 elections and the way things are going I won't be starting back up again in 2016. I probably wouldn't go for the candidate the Democrats will roll out, but we'll see.

In the last election I didn't vote for a president at all and just moved to state and local positions and measures.
