Political parties' main goal is to perpetuate themselves and their office holders, not resolve issues or rationally manage government. Voting by party rather than evaluating individual issues and candidates results in accepting rhetoric as fact and electing candidates with the "right" banner, even when you may disagree with many of their positions. The power of parties also causes candidates to espouse and support positions contrary to their own beliefs. Becoming an Independent, in both registration and voting, causes you to analyze the details of issues more objectively and to select better public servants. Labels don't matter; governing does.

"Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right." ― H.L. Mencken
