|Introduction||I've been a Republican most of my life, but the Republican Party is no longer what it used to be. Or, perhaps, it's exactly what it used to be but I just didn't see it before and now do.
In any case, I will never be a Republican again. They now openly stand for everything I oppose (namely, empire abroad and police-state tyranny here at home) and against everything I hold dear (namely, our republic, our Constitution, its Bill of Rights, and fundamental, internationally recognized standards of human decency).
Not that the Democrats are any better.
So, I'm an independent now. A free radical, so to speak, able to move towards whichever party or candidate best represents me in any given election.
Here's my complete presidential voting history (just to give you an idea of where I'm coming from politically):
Bush (a big mistake)
Obama (a bigger mistake)
