Since we have never met on here formally I guess I should introduce myself. Especially since you just categorized me incorrectly and have the complete wrong impression of me.
I am not a necessarily a Republican, but nor am I a Democrat. I don't really think I can relate to either party at this point. I did the quiz another poster put up in this section and it categorized me as a strong Libertarian.
I served 5 years in the Navy, but all the while voted Democrat because I didn't believe in almost everything Bush stood for and thought he was an idiot. He essentially was a puppet that was put in there to make a lot of money for his friends, at the expense of millions of Iraqi and American lives. darn him.
I do plan on voting for Ron Paul in the upcoming election, even if that means writing him in. I like most of what he speaks about and how he actually outlines his policies and how they will work. Romney doesn't really seem to have any outline to his policies, just criticizing Obama for the last four years. However, he does have valid reasons to criticize Obama. His track record is bad, his promises have gone unfulfilled, and his policies going forward don't appear promising.
I don't watch Fox News, or almost any news for that matter. I don't even have cable right now. I stream sports from the internet for that fix and get my news mostly from the BBC and a few internet sources. None of them being Fox, CNN, MSNBC, or any of the mainstream news sources one would expect.
So I would appreciate you not categorizing or stereotyping me. Save that garbage for people like Esplanade. Or at least if you are going to do it, get it right.
Nice to meet you, have a great week.
And change that lame behind avatar photo, it makes you seem like a douche bag.
