In US politics, I know a lot of people associate themselves with "left" and "right" parties, and even more will vote only Democratic or only Republican.
Why do we need to have opposing groups trying to accomplish the same thing? I don't associate with any party. I am more liberal, but I am neither democrat or rebublican.
I think the party system is flawed and we should concentrate more on getting reasonable, nonbiased people into office. As it stands now, Democrats and Republicans will disagree just for the sake of disagreeing.
I put a poll in, it's not anonymous, so don't answer if you don't want people to see.
