Independents tend to be free thinkers...

To be clear on this issue, let me say that I think that all people (barring the mentally handicapped) have been given godlike capacity for thought. (Ye are gods, and children of the most high.) It's just that some choose not to exercise it. Whether by age, circumstance, laziness, not caring, or otherwise, for these folks it's just easier to adopt the status quo. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, Jesus said something similar in the parable of the sower.

I do think that independents are free thinkers and as such, probably do end up here. Contrast that with the Democratic Party that promises the "average" citizen free everything from cradle to grave. Who do you think they will end up with?

Note to the Democrats that have switched- You are now above the "average". Grats!
