Anonymous asked: What do you think about people who don't really associate with any party? As I've grown older and more aware of what's going on in the world, I've been trying to figure out which political party I most closely follow, and I decided that I agree with probably as many liberal ideals as I do conservative ideals, just regarding different issues (except the economy because I am SO inept at understanding that stuff, which might pose a problem since money plays a big role in party ideals, right?).
Well I think it’s never a good idea to associate with a party in particular. It’s better to just associate yourself with an ideal. I am a registered Republican, but because I prefer to call myself a conservative, if there is a Democrat who is more conservative than a Republican, I would vote for the Democrat. This is theoretical, of course, because no Democrat would ever be more conservative than a Republican. So I am EFFECTIVELY a Republican, but in actuality I am a conservative.
Actually, you know what, if Bill Clinton, Democrat, ever ran against Jon Huntsman, Republican, I would probably vote for Bill Clinton. I think both men are slimy people, but Huntsman’s crappy presidency would harm the chances of FUTURE (conservative) Republicans to become president. I also think Jon Huntsman may possibly be slimier than Bill Clinton, actually. Not sure. He’s certainly more opaquely phony.
