If you describe yourself as an “independent” voter, please state three ways in which your political beliefs differ strongly from the published platform of both the Democratic and Republican party, at either the state (your state, that is) or national level. (Award yourself a gold star if you can do this without having to look up the platforms in order to do so.)
Stipulation: you must actually use the term “independent” as your primary political self-designation. For the purposes of this question, neither libertarian, green, communist, socialist, fascist noranarchist is considered to be a synonym for “independent.”
Extra credit question: are you actually registered as independent/unaffiliated, or are you registered with a party and if so which one and why?
