"An independent voter register as an unaffiliated voter in the United States, is a voter of a democratic country who does not align him- or herself with a political party. An Independent is variously defined as a voter who votes for candidates and issues rather than on the basis of a political ideology or partisanship; a voter who does not have long-standing loyalty to, or identification with, a political party; a voter who does not usually vote for the same political party from election to election; or a voter who self-describes as an independent."
This is pretty much how I align myself in life too.... voting for the issues I personally believe in as opposed to the party. I hate the idea of aligning myself to a group anyway. Fuck group mentality horseshit, I'm just an outlaw baby.
