    Do you have proof of this? I've never heard this sentiment before, and i keep up with political opinion fairly well, i think. It seems i would have heard this at some point.

    Thanks.

    You know the old saying walks like a duck, quacks like a duck? Well these people know who they are specifically, and that is all that can or needs to be said. You know what they say about first impressions, and I think the honesty we express by selecting our own label goes a long way towards establishing credentials and credibility. This goes for anyone regardless of ideology, to deliberately misrepresent themselves is shameless and should not be accepted practice. I hold them to the same standard I hold to myself, when I joined here I saw I had a choice to make, and I made a decision based upon what most accurately reflects my view.

    Are you saying he's wrong? If Scarecrow Akbar's independent, I'm libertarian... which I'm not.

    As for the approval rating, I can tell you that it's not going to change much at all over the next three years, and it's going to sit at 65-70% disapproval for that time span unless Obama gets abducted by the Rand Institute and replaced with a libertarian clone.

    So no proof then, just your opinion based on personal experiences? That's not much of a sample size. I was hoping for some sort of nonpartisan data from a somewhat reliable source or something like that. Oh well.

    Yes, lets try this. List all the independents.

    How can you be so certain? That sounds too much like religious dogma for me to really pay it much mind. I could just as easily make a statement to the contrary, and it'd be just as meritorious.

    He is talking about the membership at this site. There isn't going to be a nonpartisan analysis of the membership of this site.

    Ah, thanks for the clarification. This was not clear in his post. It seemed like he was talking about the public at large.
