For example, I'm pretty conservative, however, there are issues on which I'm pretty liberal. For one, I see no problem with welfare programs, as long as there are limitations. I think that they do more good than harm. I also think that marijuana should be legalized, and I'm for gay rights. What about you?

I am a moderate Independent. I think the system is in disrepair- The election process is for sale and only certain folks are allowed to bid on the prize. No matter who is elected there are ramifications d/t to the needed "Pay back". It's a very divisive system-
Lots of things I disapprove of- waste, excess, violence, entitlement, self-centered behaviors, lousy schools, corrupt practices-

I research any candidate I think deserves the "look" then I vote for the best person for the job. I pay no attention to the advertised Party affiliation. Although there are several "deal breakers" for me that almost always exclude extreme conservative either side. Such as : gay rights, reproductive rights and separation of faithand position.

Unfortunately, I think we (those who are very interested in politics) are in the minority. Many people (likely the majority) of voters do not do their due diligence prior to elections, and I believe many just vote for a recognizable name....so frustrating.
