Hypothetical . . .
Imagine the spectrum of political party Dem-Rep. Imagine that the spectrum would now be cut into three:
The far left, the middle, The far right. Each comprising about 33.3 percent of voters.
Far left remains democrat
Far right republican
Middle = New group
In an honest opinion about yourself, where do you stand?
I am a middle straddler . . .
It's not the parties that are the problem, it's the elections system that requires pandering for money, in order to get elected. Once you "owe" someone, all hope of change is lost. In order to get elected, any third party candidate would have to play the same game. We need election reform!

I am more concerned with a candidate attempting to legislate morality or make decision based on his/her religious affiliation or belief system. I would prefer to know nothing about a candidate's "religious" beliefs. Religious dogma should have zero impact on political decisions-
