I am an Independent for many reasons, always have and always will be. I have voted GOP and DEM depending on the brains, character, fiscal conservatism and social liberalism of candidates. I hate the progressive platform as much as the social conservatism AND dogmatic, inflexible ideology of the zealot Right. Stupid are both.
More of my kind are being created every da, which we can only hope resutls in a viable 3rd Party. Sadly, the GOP could own the middle, but the religious nutjobs who can't separate church & state, even on this website, kill any chance of that. And results show for it and will continue to make the GOP growingly irrelevant.
Hopefully, the GOP as presently incarnated wil wise-up or just die off.
