Party issues

I am honestly not affiliated with any party.  When I vote I vote based on what I know about the candidate and which candidate fits my views the best.  I don't care if there is an R, D, I or any other party tag beside their name.  

So I can't really answer this question from one point of view. 


But I will ask you.


What issues do you have with your own party?  What do you think needs to be fixed in your party?

Not really my party; I abandoned ship last cycle.

Pursuit of true single-payer healthcare

Federal government in the education process (politicians and corporations, not educators deciding the course of our country's education system)

Perpetuation of activities that makes ending wars impossible. 

Lack of imagination, a hallmark of the party that I used to admire

Honestly I can see both parties in your description.  

What party do you align yourself with now?  Do you see issues in that party?
