    I have noticed an abundance of republicans on this forum.
    That wouldnt be a problem if they werent of the crazy teabagger variety.

    And they seem to assume anyone who disagrees with them is a liberal democrat.

    I would just like to say I am a Federalist. Look it up.

    This is not a shot at all the republicans because im sure there are more rational ones then loony toons but...

    You know.

    Anyway The point of this thread is to separate the crazy bastards from the rest.

    So if you are indeed a republican fell free to post a couple of your thought on various hot button or keystone topics.

    The Federalist party hasn't existed in almost 200 years. Are you here via time travel?

    I don't either, which is part of why I quit being a Republican a few years ago.

    Imo, there should be no parties, and no Congressional caucuses either.

    There never really was a Federalist Party, there were the folks who supported ratification of the Constitution (Federalists), and folks who didnt support it (Anti-Federalists). The Federalists morphed into the Whigs (roughly the modern day Republicans), and the anti-Federalists morphed into the Democratic-Republicans (modern day Democrats). Though I agree with the sentiment of your post, I must admit I'm a tad confused when you call yourself a capital-F Federalist. Could you elaborate more?

    That wouldnt be a problem if they weren't of the crazy moonbat variety.

    And they seem to assume anyone who disagrees with them is a conservative republican.

    I would just like to say I am an independent. Look it up.

    This is not a shot at all the democrats because I'm sure there are more rational ones then loony toons but...

    In response to HG's query:

    I've been a registered Democrat for a long time. On occasion, I've voted for Independents, Greens, Libertarians and some Republicans. But mostly Democrats.

    As far as having views that run lockstep to some party line, I don't. I make my decisions based on my evaluation of particular situations. Sometimes I part ways with the prevailing tide. For example:

    -- I am strongly for increasing our border security. I favor an impenetrable physical border with a rational immigration policy.

    -- I don't have a knee-jerk approval of public funding for social programs. My approval of said funding is on a case-by-case basis. Balanced budgets are a wonderful thing, too.

    And as a side note, I know a lot of registered Republicans who are fine, upstanding people with whom I am prone to raise a glass, exchange child-caring favors without hesitation, and enjoy mutual joking at each other's expense.

    It just means that my thoughts about the country are more in accord with the old school federalists than anything

    And didnt the Democrats and republicans switch sides at some point? dont remember when that class was a while ago.

    Cue.

    If there's just a nihilist and not nihilists, you can't queue him or her.

    And what you said made sense...

    You remind me of what the Dems used to be.
