Submission + - A Political Party for the Grown-Up Geek?

lythander writes: A quandary for the modern geek: which political party to affiliate with, or none at all? I live in a very blue state, and am registered blue on the theory that since mostly blues will be sent to office, voting in the (closed — i.e. blue-only) primaries matters most. I sit firmly in the middle and/or outer edges of politics depending on the topic. I view people who are strongly blue or red as decidedly foolish and/or narrow-minded, and feel they should think for themselves. I have considered libertariansism, independence, green, and not-affiliated, which seems to only serve to remove me from a large chunk of the political process. Ans of course, there is no registered American pirate party (yet!) I do vote, and feel that the only way to work for change is to work within the system (I am no Matthew Sobol,)but from which direction? I'm not a politician, just a geek with a wife, kids, and a typical sub-urban life. Oh, and chickens. Does that matter?
