This thread is a terrific idea – no discussion, no reasoning, just labels. Sometimes there are more threads like this than we realize.

Democrat, except about Israel. Then I’m very right-wing.
Don’t follow politics, they are all the same.
Anyone agree to break the rules now? I really want to comment.
Our country would be a lot better place without liberals
There is no significant difference between Republicans and Democrats.
There are some good people on both sides and a lot of bad ones. Each side has their own values: some values on one side conflict with Torah values more than the values on the other side depending on the issue at hand. The government is what it is. Power corrupts- lib. or con. alike. We m”H have our gedolim, trust them- not the government.
In some states you can’t register with a party — you just register to vote and that’s it.
It’s unfortunate that in the US, there is no party that is left-leaning on economic issues but right-leaning on social or moral issues. All the religious parties in Israel are like that.
Regardless, I think Jews make a big mistake by identifying too much with a single political party, both because (given our political climate) this leads to arrogance and looking down on people who believe differently, and because it causes people to absorb anti-Torah ideologies such as those of Ayn Rand or secular humanism.
I’m not registered for any party. In the U.S. I usually vote Libertarian. Here I usually vote Yahadut HaTorah.
yytz: I didn’t know that.
As a Libertarian I am somewhat familiar with Ayn Rand though I am no expert by any means. Which of her writings are Anti-Torah? Being against government largess doesn’t equal stinginess. Assistance through private means is preferable to the welfare state.

Wolfman, see the recent threads on Jonathan Swift and Atlas Shrugged.
In Democratic strongholds like most of NYC, you basically throw away your right to choose your representatives unless you’re a registered Democrat. The winner of the Democratic primary is almost guaranteed to win the general election. You can’t vote in the Democratic primary unless you’re a registered Democrat.
To yehudayona: You gotta get out more. Democrats in the last 5 mayoral elections have lost. Your statement was conventional wisdom not so long ago, but times change. And conventional wisdom is vastly over-rated.
To nfgo3: Can’t you follow the rules – just post your party registration, no discussion, no reasoning, no facts.
