    I wanted to make up a poll that is more international in scope. Regretfully, I haven't heard from Canada or the Continent. When they respond with any information, there will be a Party Poll 2. [​IMG]

    I draw your attention to the most important feature of this poll: the I am not . . . option. Would that poll writers use this option more often. [​IMG]

    I bumped this so the pool would get more responders. I did not set it up for a debate. Though I would appreciate any party infromation from our Canadian members or members from the continent. (Yes, Mioque, that means you).

    Well Squire, what I am hoping for is some members to join us from New Zealand, it seems odd that out of the 11000+ Baptists that are registered here that there is not one Kiwi!

    UK Independence Party.

    It's quite simple, really. The EU is making more and more of our laws (up to 70% at the moment!!!), and whilst we're part of the EU everything the EU says, goes.

    So really there's little point having a parliament or even voting whilst we're still members of the EU. Since UKIP is the only party fielding lots of candidates that actually WANTS to leave the EU, it's quite easy.

    And finally, as for the few powers our country DOES have, the three main parties are all in agreement that we should use them to be extremely socially liberal (the Lib Dems are the worst here, then Labour and then Conservative).

    So vote UKIP and when we leave the EU we can actually have a meaningful discussion about the other issues.

    Constitution! [​IMG] Although I am kind of Libertarian too. I think the Monster Raving Loony Party sounds funny. (No offense to anyone). [​IMG]

    Though I live in and a Citizen of the good ole USA voted "I am not a voter in the USA.

    I am registered with the (CLICK ON) CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF NEW YORK
    You should have also listed (1) Independent (or in the case of NY - Not enrolled) as well as (2) not registered and (3) Other

    I tried to include parties with a national membership which the CPNY does not have. And this is a Party Poll. So if you are not registered to a particular party, just check the box you did to see the results.
