because the Republican Party has a bad name

It takes a long time to get rid of that stigma. Might be better to start fresh with a new name.

Though, whatever party you run under in a Democratic area (Libertarian, Republican, Democrat, or some new Freedom party) the idea is to be socially liberal and fiscally conservative. Gee they sound like a Democrat but they actually want to actually balance the budget. I think I will vote for them.

We have 2 Independent senators now-- Vermont and Maine. I think that is so cool.
