Not a Democrat

At least by design.

I just wanted to clarify that should it ever come up. I used to consider myself an independent until “independent” turned into sort of meaning “I’m a Republican but I’m too embarrassed to admit it” or alternatively, “It’s two days before the election and I’m still too clueless to pick a side.”

I do tend to vote with the Democrats, not by design, but by necessity. There used to be Republicans that I would have happily voted for (and did), but the nation has marched so far to the right, that “moderate” is the left wing of the Democratic party.

No really, that we can even argue things like habeas corpus and torture means the needle is pinned all the way to the right of the “crazy-o-meter”.
