If you are tired of dirty politicians, you could be a Libertarian!
Modern politics has become a zero sum game. You can be a Democrat, and vote for an agenda that is becoming increasingly socialistic in nature. You can be a Republican, and vote for an agenda that is intrusive in the lives of the citizenry in areas concerning privacy, personal rights and the general right to say no to demands placed upon the people by the government.
You can vote as an independent. But not only is the vote in a pool too small to elect your candidate, it steals that one vote from the guy running in one of the two dominate parties that is closest to your viewpoint.
Many people in this country will vote for one or the other of the two main parties, but have viewpoints that are more in the camp of a Libertarian view. If you support laws which increase your right to do as you want to, as long as it does not hurt anyone else, you might be a Libertarian. If you also believe that other people should be able to do what they want to as long as they do not hurt anyone, and you do not believe that you or anyone else has the right to tell them what to do, you are most likely a Libertarian!
