  •  True. I don't think both parties (2+ / 0-)

    have it half right.  On some issues, one party is more aligned with our stand on issues, and the other party sometimes matches up closer.  When neither major party aligns too closely, being Independent gives us the freedom to select the one that comes closest or vote for a third party, if that third party comes close.  We don't feel obligated to support a party simply because we belong to it or our parents belonged to it.  I've never voted a straight party ticket.

    One thing many Independents I know want to do is break the 2 party system up  to open politics up a little more, give us better representation and choices, and allow better people to run for and be hired (voted) in to office.

    We think a three or multi-party system would ultimately give us greater control over our elected employees.

    But rather than asking us, we get told we don't "pay attention" and are "lazy", and won't admit we really belong to one of the major parties.

    I don't expect the media to get it right.
