There are those that have made comments here and elsewhere, doubting my claim to be an independent centrist. Not that I care what anyone thinks, mind you, but I have taken an online test that pinpoints my score, based on that particular test's results. Here is the graph where my pinpoint is located.
You can take the test for yourself here. It's not scientific, but almost every test that I have taken similar to this, shows me near the area where this model shows me to be.
Too many people think that to be independent you must reject all things from both parties. That thinking is known as black and white thinking. With no vision of the gray areas, they look at one party as all good and another as all bad, with no in between. This is termed "splitting" in the psychiatric world and is a common trait found in what is known as, borderline personality disorder.
Being a centrist is more complex than the little box they try to put one in. I wrote a piece a couple of years ago that explains a centrist in better detail. To those that don't get it, I recommend reading it.
