Nobody tells you how to vote.
Nobody pressures you for a donation.
Your vote is pure, not influenced by party.
Your thinking stays pure, not "for the sake of the party".
You remain untethered to a party candidate who becomes foul.
Independent does not mean "weak".
It is not necessarily moderate. Independents can be very forceful. We have a full array of issues from which to choose.
So Independent does not mean "Blue Dog" Democrat.
It does not mean RINO.
It need not mean compromising.
