I do not vote for parties. I vote for individuals who have convinced me that they are capable of doing the job they're trying to get after doing as much research as I can. If I cannot find sufficient information on a candidate, that candidate does not get my vote.

Here's a flowchart:

                                                 /   Yes?  Which political party did you vote for 
                                                /    in the last two presidential elections?
Do you claim to be a Moderate? -----------------
                                                \    No?    Nothing is required from you... move along.

No need to apologize.

My working hypothesis is that most people who claim to be moderates end up voting for Democrats anyway, why not just identify as Democrat, why cling to the Moderate identifier?

Which I guess will be my follow-up post...

Why? Because I'm stuck in a two party system. I take this bad one or that bad one and i take the lesser of two evils. Mitt was batshit stupid and then ... Obama. Either way i was screwed. But Obama was less bad than Mitt. It could have been swapped and i would have voted for Mitt if things were different. I guess i'm Moderate like you stated.

moderate is a thin line between two parties, and people's ideologies aren't line-shaped. I don't think there is really such a thing as "moderate" because parts of people's beliefs will spill into either side to various degrees on various issues.

Rand Paul supporter?

EDIT: How would you change the electoral process to fix your perceived problems?

I don't vote because voting is a waste of time.
