Firmly independent. I believe in promoting the rights of people unless doing so infringes on the rights of others, responsible and necessary military funding, and fiscal responsibility. Democrats have a huge lead in the first, neither cares for the second (though Republicans tend to prefer over-spending and over-use of the military relative to Democrats tendency to prefer underfunding and over-use of the military), and neither party really advances fiscal responsibility. A political "quiz" would put me center leaning libertarian, but the libertarian party isn't very libertarian on many issues so I can't identify with them. That's only a few of the many areas of politics I have strong feelings about, but those are some of the biggest ones for me.
