Which Party?

I really have become more independent politically the more nonsense I see on the news. Today I figured that I should research, what party am I really?

I looked up Libertarian Party first and found;

A lot of what they say makes sense, we should take care of ourselves and the government shouldn't be involved in our care. But, then I started to think about how some of what I read in this platform was contradicted in other places.

Next I looked up Democratic Party and found;

I have to admit I agree with so much more here, especially:

"Democrats stand for an abiding faith in the judgment of hardworking American families, and a commitment to helping the excluded, the disenfranchised and the poor strengthen our nation by earning themselves a piece of the American Dream. We remember that our country was sculpted by immigrants and slaves, their children and grandchildren. Even today, it is our diversity above all else that provides us with our enduring strength."

Lastly I looked up information about the Republican Party. This proved to be a bit harder because there was information for each state and their Republican Party, also there seemed to be new information each year, making it a little confusing. The website I found the most helpful was from 2008, and the more I looked through it the more confusing it was for me;

I feel like I should do more research, but I guess you put all these together and you get Independent. I guess I have turned more person than party.
