    Anarcho-Capitalism is a bit more "extreme" than Libertarianism. Although I have liked some Lib candidates in the past. Harry Browne was a great candidate... But they haven't had a good one since him, imho.
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    Fiscally, I'm conservative. Not a huge fan of social programs and government nannyism -- but I'm afraid that within our current system, they have been made necessary and that will not change without a systemic overhaul.

    I think some folks call it "Anarcho-Capitalism".

    Anyone wanna go form a country with me?
    Yup.... I agree with you outlook BlackPR.

    I registered republican when I turned 18, only to have a vote in the primaries.

    I don't follow party lines, some Republican some Independents. I once believed in the Republicans, but I can't any longer. Maybe they will come back but I wont hold my breath.

    +1. I'm a conservative libertarian, but have no registered affiliation.

    Since the new head of the Republican Party has no understanding of the 2nd Amendment, I can no longer be a Republican.

    well the way I look at things there are points on both sides of the spectrum that I agree and don't agree with so I registered under independent. In fact I don't mind saying I voted for Bob Barr for President. At least I came to a happy medium since my friends are mostly republican and my parents are democrat and with that being said, I can't really talk politics without someone being upset about something.

    I am a conservative Christian first, and a registered Republican second.

    My faith is in Jesus Christ, not my government leaders.

    I am truly disappointed in Senators Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins (Republicans), who, on Friday, refused to let the "porkulus" bill die. Shame on them.

    This porkulus bill is nothing more than funding of liberal pet projects, pork and political payoffs.

    We have corrupt kooks running our country.

    I registered as a Democrat because my whole family was Democrat. I became disillusioned some time after I started working and saw big chunks of my paycheck disappear for social programs, etc. I have never bothered to change my party affiliation but vote my conscience and for strong 2A advocates. If my friends ask when I quit voting Democrat, I jokingly tell them it was when I quit doing drugs!

    I'm a Republican, but don't always vote party lines. I try to pick the best person.

    Registered as a Republican because they tend to support more of the values I believe in. Do not call myself one though, I am a conservative that just happens to usually vote Republican most of the time.

    I am registered Democrat, because in the local elections you can't vote in primaries unless you are registered. For many years there were only Democrat primaries for lack of any functioning Republican party or canidates in our area.

    In any election I vote for the individual, regardless of party. For too many years it has been voting for the lesser of the two evils as I saw them.

    It is amazing to see how many here are registered Republican, and seem to almost regret it. And people say that a third party isn't an option.

    Maybe a "Peoples" party is an option before I die. I can only hope my son will have better choices when he is able to vote.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    That was the case for decades in Middle Tennessee as well, and still is to some extent. The Democratic primary was the local general election. It has changed now; some Republicans actually win in the general election around here.

    It seems that almost 20% identified themselves as independents. Can anyone explain exactly what the 'Independent' platform is?
    Independent isn't a party. It means you're independent of a party, for whatever reason. For some, it's because the current or existing parties do not represent them at all or as well as they would like. For others, they just don't want any kind of party affiliation, or along this vein don't believe in loyalty to a political party. Where you won't compromise your Republican affiliation concerning how "conservative" you are or aren't, others are more inclined to adhere to their conservatism, liberalism, etc., in all of their varieties, than to a political party.

    Yes, I'm one of those registered independents.
