    Once, I was a communist, now I'm a liberal.

    As the man said. "If you're not a liberal when you're young, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative when you're older, you have no head."



    I myself have shifted position on a few things - for example, Abortion.

    When I was young I considered myself a Republican, and when old enough to vote I registered and voted Republican. Then, after some time in the Military I determined that the Republican party was too pro-business to the detriment of everything else and I changed affiliation to the Democratic Party. But I eventually determined that the Democrats advocated social welfare to extremes, and I became a Libertarian. That just means I listen to each candidate of whatever party, vote for the one I agree with most regardless of party, and vote Libertarian otherwise.

    I have yet to find a political affiliation that suits me first. I am told at some issues to be a centrist. But independent sounds nice. Libertarian is too much chaotic. Still thinking about it.

    Started somewhat liberal, swung hard right, and now see multiple points on all sides.
    Stirred, not shaken, with an olive.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    I've always been unaffiliated. Never registered as being one party or another. My views on certain topics have changed, but I'll never buy into a party line or register as one.

    Grew up in a vaguely Republican household, voted Republican. My views were altered by my university experience expanding my mind, seeing things as I never had before [ and incorrectly as far as I can determine in most instances, but it is nice to have had the perspective ], registered Independent, then Democrat for one election...then back to Republican... which is, unfortunately. too weak, watered down, too wishy washy while finding the rationality of conservatism more to my liking... and would proudly consider myself a Tea Party Conservative now... with some intermittent Libertarian views...and with an open mind to evidence, logical supposition and provable fact.

    I've settled on cannibalism. I have to admit it was inspired by watching the GOP routinely eat each other.

    I don't know, I am still a registered GOPer but I haven't voted that way since I voted for Alan Keyes over this dink in the WH we have now.

    Voted Obama and Green in 2008
    Green in 2010
    Libertarian and Green 2012


    Now I should never say never, but..... I'm pretty sure it is safe to say I will NEVER.... never, never, never.....never? NEVER vote for a Democrat again. I did with Dink and I see where that got me.
