Republican / Democrat

I recently changed my voter's registration card from Democrat to Independent.  I never really thought about it until my woman brought it up but the more I thought about it the more it made sense.  Why affiliate yourself with a group that you may or may not agree with.  I may agree with a certain candidate but the party as a whole I may not see eye to eye with.  What if a Democratic candidate comes along and says "all people with brown eyes pay x amount in taxes. All people with green eyes pay x amount in taxes."  Are you gonna go with it just because you are affiliated with that party?  I think not.  My example may have been extreme but the point was given I believe.
