Daily Paul Poll: What was your political association and has it changed Dem, Repub, Lib etc.

Can someone make a poll here that has the above question? I think it would be great for everyone to see percentages of where we all came from. I guess I really didn't care at all about politics until heard the 1hr summary of G. Edward Griffin speaking about the Creature from Jekyll Island. This was right after Obama was elected. I am now a proud Libertarian

I was never dumb enough to be a political party member

Republicans did run on a no war platform as Ron Paul has stated before. Bush jr fooled everyone who voted for him of course,but then 9/11 happend and changed everyones minds over night about war. Everyone became derranged and bent on war and bloodlust had risen to the point that nobody gave a damn about domestic and foreign policy

Love this thread!

Love reading all the positive comments. :) It's almost like listening to testimonies before baptisms. :) (Disclaimer: NOT that I'm equating politics to spirituality or Ron Paul to God. :P Although he has challenged me spiritually, I will admit.:)

I was independent

but usually voting for the Republicans, I'm sorry to say. I didn't feel good about it though, but I didn't know there was a consistent position out there until I heard Ron Paul! I registered Republican at the caucus to vote for him. Now I know exactly what I believe, which is a really great feeling. :) I don't worry about talking politics as much anymore (of course, I do have to work on refining my technique though!). And I don't feel loyal to either party or as worried about what people think. It's very LIBERATING! :)

I've been SCPRT for many years!

-- I've been SCPRT for many years, a Strict Constitutional Paleoconservative Reconstructionist/Theonomist. Ron Paul fits within a significant part of my worldview and therefore I support him 110%!

It's Ron Paul for the Long Haul! Let's think about what a Ron Paul Administration will look like, in terms of policy, personnel, departments (rather the lack thereof) etc. We need to begin with the end in mind, I think you will agree.

Ron Paul 2012
The Champion of the Constitution

At the cross Jesus Christ defeated sin, death, hell, and the new world order.
C’mon boys, let’s take the plunder!

after a trizen data...

..including OP et moi,
about a quarter of us each come out evenly from the Demoblican camps, and a third of us from the Libertarian camp, but none (so far) from the Constitution/USTaxPayers/(new name pending?) Party, and roughly three quarters indicating our practice or intention of caucusing with Republicans during primaries, albeit maintaining ties with local Constitarians and Libertutionists.

registered Democrat but never voted Democrat...ha, ha.

Now I support neither party...they are identical...both evil.

I support the candidate that speaks truth, has character and integrity...Ron Paul 2012!

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul


I was an unaffiliated voter. I never signed up for any party. Therefore I never used to vote in the primaries. I only voted in general elections.

Since 2007 I've registered as a republican and now I'm an active member at the local County GOP Committee. If now I only had some more like-minded company...we could move mountains! ::sigh::

Libertarian Party

Paleolibertarian politically.

I was a democrat growing up.

I was a democrat growing up. I always believed the government could be used as a vessel of good(and free stuff), but then i learned about Ron Paul. He kind of gives you hope you know, because what he believes in is the goodness of our fellow men. Long story short, I'm a Ron Paul republican now.

senior year in government

senior year in government class we started talkin bout 2008 election and the candidates. I was a ron paul supporter since I learned what politics was. Im pretty sure i was the only ron paul supporter in the whole school. Everyday for government class the teacher would go through the candidates and the latest news and id always have to stop him and give the class a 10 minute talk on ron paul because the teacher would always leave him out. First vote was repub primary and im proud to say my record is clean with just ron paul votes.


I've been Libertarian for 10 years, I've been a democrat, a green, a progressive, a neo-con and maybe even worse for very short lived times. Libertarianism is hard to shake for obvious reasons.

I also have a good friend who just got married who is now a "Christian-Libertarian" and once as a HC socialist that I would argue with all the time. Now we laugh it up and talk about how AWESOME RON PAUL IS!!!!! THE END!

However when Ron Paul is running, I am Ron Paul Republican and I vote for him open primary; and If he wins I would not support whatever LP loSAR who would dare run against him. Actually I work diligently to get RON PAUL on the ballot. Because we keep it real; and with out realness we are nothing.

RON PAUL 2012 foreva!!!!!!!!!!!!! and always

Old school Republican

Voted for people I thought had the best ideas and were the most honest.

Because I was socially progressive (freedom), yet financially conservative (no one), I wanted the original Republican party. Alas, it was gone, so I had no political home for years. The Libertarian Party talked the talk, but I knew it had no power.

Finally, I discovered Ron Paul and haven't looked back since.

I'm not just Republican, I'm old school Lincoln, 'free the slaves', Republican.

Good question

I was anti-everything until Ron Paul caught my eye back in 07. Then I voted for him in 08 primaries. I like that his views represent mine to a 't' and it's sad that neither party gets it spot on for such a huge chunk of the pop. Socially liberal, fiscally conservative, anti-imperialist.

NO MORE LIES. Ron Paul 2012.

I was a democrat ...

...now I'm registered "Decline to State." I refuse to be a part of the broken, corrupt two-party system any more. When it's time to vote, the registrar sends me a postcard asking me which ballot I want. I will order up the Repub ballot, vote for Dr. Paul (write-in if necessary), and vote Libertarian candidates on every other office.

I've been a registered

I've been a registered Republican for 30 years, before that was a registered Democrat.

Was registered

Libertarian Party in California for 30 years, and was active in LP politics running for US House Of Representatives twice. Abandoned LP in 2007 because it had been taken over by neoconservative, xenophobic, warmongers. I registered as a Republican to vote for Ron Paul in 2008 CA primary.

There still may be some hope for the LP if they can just get rid of that megalomaniac Wayne Allyn Root. If they can't actually run a libertarian for President, and must resort to running neocons, they are dead as far as I am concerned.
