Should you abandon your political party when it no longer sticks to your ideals?

  • Yes, you must be true to your ideals.

    Yes, I think a person should abandon their political party when it no longer sticks to that person's ideals. A political party is supposed to be based on certain beliefs and behaviors that traditionally do not change over time. Since our current political parties have drifted from their original intent, I think we should register our disapproval by abandoning them.

  • It seems like the logical thing to do

    Of course, I do not think one party fits my ideals totally. That is why I would never claim to be Democrat or Republican. I have heard the green party is making a big push in some countries, but I am not sure what that party entails. I always claim myself as an Independent. If a party did not fit my beliefs for the most part, I would not belong to it.

  • The two party system doesn't serve people well.

    A two party system is failing our country. A style of government formed of coalition groups would be more effective and less susceptible to gridlock in congress. People should be excited to leave their current parties and try out new ideologies and organizations. I think Socialist and nativist parties will spring from people who think the GOP isn't conservative enough or the Democrats aren't liberal enough.

  • Yes, you should.

    When a political party does not match your views, beliefs and ideals, then you should no longer support it. Instead, seek out a party that better matches your viewpoint, or become independent if you are unable to find a party. Staying true to yourself is more important than sticking with a political party.
