What political party do you identify with (in the U.S.)?

What political party are you a member of (or identify yourself with) in the U.S.? Just looking to get a sense of the demographics on this board like the Salary and Profession polls that were done...

Only three responses so far :-/ I'm going to guess that with a lot of response you'll get about just shy of 2 to 1 republican. I believe recent studies have been done on this subject (political party affiliation and cars) based on bumper stickers each type of car displayed (yes, some organization actually spent the time to do this) and bmws came up strongly in the Republican column. Oddly enough, infiniti came out 3 to 1 democrat, bad news for a fellow Republican friend of mine who drives a G35...

This should be moved to the politics forum or general off topic forum, I think it would get alot more exposure.

Acutally, that unfortunately is about the extent of the Democratic platform currently: "We're not George Bush"

I kinda gave up on party affiliation when I was so fed up with Repubs, I switched over to Dems only to find out they aren't much better. All I know is that throughout my existence, regardless of which party controlled congress or sat in the POTUS chair my quality of life hasn't changed in any significant manner to where I still care much.

Can't really even get news anymore considering the art of "spin" is no longer an art but rather a very obvious agenda driven, in your face affair for both sides of the party line from all news outlets. It's kind of sad...but it's where we are today.

I've gone from being a Republican to just a Hater of all. This coming from a guy who was a political science major in college. What an embarrassing mess it has all become.

More Republicans?

It makes sense that there would be more GOPers here because, like BMW the Republicans are all show no go or if you prefer all hat no cattle or better yet they speak loudly and carry no stick.

The Libertarian party. If I lived in the US and could vote + Ron Paul won the republican ticket I'd vote for him.

None of them because they don't exist at the top . It's just government . The parties are created to divide and conquer so we are all on different accords
