    Well, when it comes to voting in the primaries you really need to be in one of the larger political parties. I'm a registered Republican because of that. Though I'm rather Independant/Conservative. I joined a larger party so that I might "effect" more.

    Yeah it's weird, I'd never heard of those parties before until coming on here! I thought it was a 3-party system over in the US (with Libertarians).

    There are a lot of people for whom the major political parties do NOT represent the majority of their views, and it is actually counterproductive for them to vote for the one that is "closer." Look at small-government conservatives in the United States. They usually feel the Republican Party is their "home," but they'd be getting the exact opposite of what they want, especially the last ten years or so.

    The Libertarian Party regularly gets about 1% of the vote in presidential elections. They, the Green Party, and the Constitution Party are the only third parties of any note, and they still don't win elections at the federal level. There is a Republican Liberty Caucus amongst the GOP, though, of libertarian-leaning Republicans.
