  • I would. I am all about fiscal conservancy, but I cannot stand the moral legislation that the Republican's are forced to align themselves with.

    You know.. Ive seriously been considering joining the Libertarian party lately. Ive considered myself Republican for a long time now, but I dont like the religious aspect of the Republican party.

  • No, I probably wouldn't, but I would respect them more and listen to them more and hope that both parties could try and work together without religion getting in the way...

  • I DEFINATELY think that they could find middle grounds easier without religion in the mix. They are some things about the republican party that I have tried and tried to see their way, but without that religious element, there are no logical reasons for those aspects of the party.

  • I wouldn't say I would turn Republican but they might get my vote more often if they kept religion and personal morals out of the picture.

  • I proabably wouldn't become Republican, BUT it would definitly open my mind up to be more willing to look at Republican candidates in elections; knowing that they religious agenda wouldn't be involved. There are quite a few Rep. agendas that I agree with (even though I'm a paper Dem).

  • I would remain non-affiliated, but I'd be more comfortable about some Republicans actually writing law.

    My husband would re-join the Republican party, possibly.

  • No. I've been party-less for years and I like it that way. I see good things in all the parties so I would never classify myself as any one. Independent FTW. :)
