Very good book (if you get past his slanted views of the South).
    Thanks. I'll check it out.

    It is diisturbing that the recent trend has been to prohibit the free exercise of religion to the point where a moment of silence was disallowed. Silence?

    Entitled to your view, but as usual I see it the opposite way around.

    Maybe we should stick to talking about guns.

    What a coincidence! I was about to remind everybody about the forum rules regarding politics and/or religion.

    Being an independent is great for your feelings, but does nothing to have an impact on the system. I'm extremely disappointed in the way the Republicans spent like drunken sailors when they were the majority. But by being a registered Republican, I can try to work within the system to try to get them back to the principles that gave them the majority in 1994.

    I am a conservative and a christian. I am a registered Republican because we still have only a two party system.

    While I don't always vote a straight Republican ticket (although I did this time), I find it harder and harder to stomach voting for a Democrat of any type these days.

    This last election cycle made me sick to my stomach and furious! Not only for the presidential vote, but for congressional and State elections as well.

    My faith is in God, and these days little else. I can trust my faith in God, but I trust NO politician!

    I am disgusted with politics, yet will not walk away from the fight of the righteous and my conservative principles.

    If I were to disengage now, I'd just be part of the brainwashed and apathetic masses the mainstream "drive-by" media has created.

    misfit, I don't fit in any of the boxes. I during primaries in washington yhey ask one to choose a party so I choose the one closes to what I like. So I can vote against what I don't like.

    I'm not registered as anything, but am Libertarian "officially." However, I am thinking of switching my affiliation on my voter registration to Republican so that at least I can vote in the primaries and try to do something to change the GOP.

    In TN we don't have to put down any party affiliation except when we are voting in primaries but I oftentimes vote Dem in those to cast a vote for the #2 candidate that is running against someone that I don't want to see get elected. That is if the man or woman that I am for is not in a tight race.
    I voted in this poll that I am independent because I try to vote for the best person for the job and not vote for the party.
    What really *isses me off is people that vote for whoever is on the Dem or Rep ticket only because that is who their father, grandfather and great grandfather have voted for. I know people that would vote for Charles Manson if he was running just because he represented a particular party.
