You are about 3 feet to the right, but perhaps because Pio is 37 miles to the right you see yourself as centrist.
    If anything, I've come closer to the centre than I was previously. I don't intend on giving up the views I have any time soon (we know how likely that is), but I think one big difference is that I can actually hop out and see the bird's eye view. How does a position affect ALL parties involved, not just me, or an end user? Obviously my biggest motivational topics are protecting the individual liberties of American citizens, protecting free enterprise and the practice by American citizens thereof, and assuring the responsibility by American citizens of holding those privileges. In my opinion, Obama doesn't believe in any of those (and if he does, the execution sucks). Romney may believe in #2, but I seriously question his belief in #1 and #3, which is why I don't want to vote for him, either. To me, the libertarian candidate Gary Johnson believes in all three, which is why he gets my vote.

    I think that works both ways. Lefties think mod righties are off their rockers as well.

    for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The left is not blameless. They spit on the returning soldiers, they told the communists where our troops were in the Vietnam War, they saw pink where conservatives saw red, they wanted God out of the public square. I could go on, just as you can go on with the perceived excesses of the right.

    If you were conservative and saw this happening to this country, you want to put the brakes on the "reforms". If your dander was up, you'd want to fight back. And because the left is, in your opinion, changing what is fundamental to be the USA, you possibly got angry. Change may be necessary, but let's talk about it, get a consensus, and implement. But don't ram it down our collective throats.

    Everyone is in a hurry to implement "change". Why rush? If it's good, then it will happen. Maybe not tomorrow, but a few years from now. If it "seemed to be a good idea at the time, but not anymore," then it will die a natural death before anything happens

    So now that one side has gone aways over there, and the other side and gone way over here, the DMZ is not a safe place to be. The left and the right have fundamental disagreements on the role of the federal government. This is what, I hope, this election is about. The electorate will make their decision and we'll see what happens.

    Maybe what we need here is for His Racistness to create a special commission to investigate what's wrong with conservatives, and why the left (including, of course, the MSM) uses words like "far," "extreme," "hard" and "ultra" to describe them. But for some odd reason, similar verbiage is rarely used to describe liberals. There are other matters the commission could investigate as well.

    Given the senstive mission of this commissin, I'd recommend Henry Waxman, Gerry Nadler and Ron Dellums as co-chairs. Fair, blanced, and above all centrist.
    Shoot Old PO'd, no need for some pricey gubmint commission. I can tell you what's wrong with conservatives anytime you'd like! Consider it a public service from your liberal friend...

    "I'm not a "liberal moonbat," I just play one on USCHO." "Slightly" left of center? That's funny.

    Hey, maybe he's Benjamin Netanyahu for all I know. But he regularly badgers me with liberal viewpoints, so I figure he's a liberal. Pretty simple concept really. Or should be.

    Maybe you're secretly Nancy Pelosi? Couldn't tell that from your posting, but how would I know if you were just cleverly disguising the fact?

    I only assess you by what you say on here and interact with me on, and in those cases you always (to the best of my recollection) stake out quite liberal positions and support politicians who push those positions. Show me otherwise. I'm not some newb you can dupe. I've seen your postings for a good many years. It's not becoming to pretend your something you're not. I'll lay off though. It's obvious I hit a nerve.

Just like whenever you see a Scooby post you just assume what it says you do the same to me which is why we all catch you on your bs "observations" all the time. You assume I am some tax and spend liberal out to socialize everything and pay for nothing. That would be true if I didnt want to cut pretty much everything under the sun. (Military, Department of Ed, Homeland Security) Also I want massive Welfare Reform, Tort Reform up the yin yang, Social Security reform amongst a bunch of other spending cuts. I also want everyone above the poverty level to start paying their share as well not just take it all from the rich.

    All of these things I have said multiple times in the past year, and you are either illiterate or willfully blind...either way I dont care you arent worth the effort. (your ability to "discuss" things went away long ago) You go on living in your ****ed off little world scared that the big bad boogey man is gonna get ya. You and Old Pio can have a blast talking about the good ole days when women werent allowed to have an opinion and the ****ed Commies were everywhere!! The rest of us in the real world will do just fine without ya.

    The smile in the post was to make you feel better since me and my Commie, Liberal, ACLU Loving, Socialist, Israel Hating Atheists are coming to destroy your major and kick your carolers in the balls next Christmas.

    (dont bother responding, you are added to the Ignore list right next to 5mn_Major, Old Pio and that creepy St. Cloud Fan who liked underaged girls...HOORAY!!)
    Another gutless libstain. Thorazine. . .stat!

    Hey, if the shoe fits, which it does for you, go ahead and wear it. Can't imagine anyone would try to find their self-worth on a message board with a bunch of folks arguing politics, but this world is full of strange and surprising things.

    I'd expect such an analysis from someone far down the ruler on the liberal side of things. I've never seen (that I recall), Handy present arguments in favor of conservative views, but have seen him time and again argue at great length in favor of liberal perspectives. I can't pretend that I see something different than what I see.
