I see no reason to join either. Stay independent and vote for the best candidates regardless of party. The left has gone way left as the right has become more moderate. Both try to get the independents who are in effect the moderates.

If you have to choose one, choose the one that actions their beliefs but do so knowing and accepting that you will not agree with everything they do. No one can make the decision for you nor sway you only you can choose which party.
Or you can continue be with neither and impose your will on no one.
Pursue freedom for you and everyone where possible outside of parties. The left right paradigm is just to herd us down paths as a group.
I would say continue down your own path unless you feel there is some reason to be aligned.
Most people will tell you your vote doesn't count unless you vote with the main parties. But at the end of the day you will find that your vote often doesn't make any difference when you live in an area which always votes majority in the opposite of your choice. Otherwise there is some satisfaction when a candidate you vote for wins a seat but thats still no reason to vote. It's a tough one.

much will has been imposed by folks of neither party and i'm guessing everything imposes some of its will but not all of it. i am not sure i won't ever be in a party, or if i will ever be. it's a tough one indeed. also there's the argument, 'well, if biden or trump aren't equally good candidates but one or the other is gonna win either way, whether or not either are good or bad candidates, at least go out and vote anyway for the one who will of the two cause more good for humanity going forward than the other one would have had they won' which gets me itching to vote for the first time in my life too, but i'm not convinced we should have a president, nor that we shouldn't, nor that either should be our president if we do have one, and so again, it's a tough one. plus, vetos checks and balances constitution executive orders electoral college supreme court overturns and or upholdings congressional and senatorial power 'the voice of the people' 'law' stuff and more leaves me guessing and guessing. 'an unjust law is no law at all' -mlk, and so forth. i wonder sometimes if politics isn't also a pseudonym for 'life'. ps thanks yall for taking the time to share your thoughts and comments.

I hear you. The only way to be represented properly is to have candidates who represent their location (city, county etc) only. Non aligned to a party only the people they represent.
I could go on for hours on the possibilities and intricacies of what proper representation might look like but I think your on the right track here.
To change the system to reflect our constituencies and the constituents could only ever possibly occur by incremental steps. In the same way people look at socialist ideas and actions having infiltrated the American system bit by bit step by step. It is a long and slow process by this manner. However, there is not much chance of revolutionary force bringing the change into play.
So yeah we're all stuck in this system as it is and your feeling,idea or push for voting this time isn't the worst idea whoever that vote is for.
In any system I would say we would need or could use a President as a ceremonial figure and others disagree with me on this but I think if actual representation was the case. The people we elect could be left to choose a President because he wouldn't have authority like he does now with executive orders on anything.
Anyways No worries and good luck with it all.

interesting. voting for the lesser of two evils isn't as good as holding out for better, theories roll. change happens all the time, and is implemented by everything, incrementally but in various sizes of increments. im guessing no matter what govt. a nation uses, or if they utilize no govt., there'll still be problems unsolved and problems getting solved, which is better, not sure. the president's executive orders can be overturned and disobeyed. not even if the prez had monarchial powers would every one obey him or her or anyone all the time anyway. lots of theories, but what about proof of any claim or belief or theory? wishful thinking and what's coming aren't always yet are somewhat the same in many ways, but so what? many ways isn't all ways, etc. what piece of advice is universally applicable in such a manner as to yield only good results if taken, etc? ps thanks for stopping by and commenting y'all.

Democrats are more likely to support protections and rights for transgender citizens, LGBT citizens, immigrants both documented and undocumented, the medically uninsured, students who need financial aid which these days is pretty much all students, labor unionists, environmentalists, minority communities - the list goes on.

The Democratic Party needs their feet held to the fire to deliver on this support, and that's definitely an issue, but at the end of the day, the only reason you have to continue to be neither is if you just don't care about any of these people at all.

it's because i care about all of you that i asked. which democrats are more likely to support said protections? all of them, or just some? what percentage of republicans support said things? aren't there people in both parties for and against basically whatever issue? and don't people who are neither party support such things, and support ending such things? with or without a 'party', people are people.

Read the two party platforms. It could not be more clear who supports what, and everyone who's affected is deeply aware of the difference.

what's a benefit or disadvantage or being a republican that doesn't apply to any democrat, and vice versa, or to being neither?
reply

The advantage is that with enough popular support, any government regardless of ideology will have no choice but to act on it, and without popular support, no government can implement something no matter how clearly a good idea it is.

Politics is a process of mass action. Always has been. Always will be. If you want an advantage, you have to organize it or join someone who has done the organizing for you.

so which party is that unique to, whether or not it's true, or whether you proved it true or not by writing it, if any?

whether ive memorized them or not how will that prove i should be a dem or repub if either? beyond guesswork i'm asking; not 'speculation' or 'unproven claim after claim after claim' etc...

a description or 'understanding' of the difterences twixt parties, whatever if any they may be, isn't proof a person should or shouldn't be a member of either, right?
0 ups, 1m
just because i posted a vid of me reading the constitution on youtube and have made many videos discussing it at length and whether it should be blindly obeyed all the time without exception or not doesn't mean i'm willing to swear to abide by it, for example, and so on...

what if i agree with parts of both platforms, but disagree with parts of both platforms? which if either party should i 'sign up to be'?
