Remember? I'm a libertarian now

Almost two months ago, after being fed up with the democrats stupid "GOP Lite" plan and losing to Bush AGAIN, I sent in the change of affiliation form to my county's board of elections. (I still haven't got my new card yet, but I called two days ago and they said they just started processing and mine should be processed by next week.)

Why did I change? Two reasons.

1. I was browsing their website and I agreed with at least 80% of their issues. Crime, drug prohibition, privacy, freedom of speech, the internet, gun laws, and welfare to name a few. The one that I'm not thrilled about is their stance on social security, but hey, you can't win 'em all. If you are a democrat, you should really go look at their stances. You may be surprised.

2. Again, I am fed up with the democratic party's "GOP lite" defense. If that party knew what was good for them they'd be more aggressive. Howard Dean understood, but the Daschel and Gephardt wing of the party just ignored him. Fuck Daschel. Except not literally, that's kinda gross. Eww, dirty politician sex.

IMPLICATIONS

1. I cannot vote democrat in the primary. Big whoop. I don't care. I trust the democrats in my county to pick the best man... or woman. Whatever.
2. I may still very well vote democratic in the regular elections, depending on who's running of course. I'm not going to turn into some nut who throws his vote away every damn election. Or maybe I will. Fuck you, it's my choice.

Sorry about that last line. You know I love each and every one of you.

update: took the quiz, so you know kinda how i stand

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 100%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 60%.


another update
here's a plethora of info on libertarianism.

yet another update
here is another quiz I took and I got 67, which makes me a medium-core libertarian.
You are a medium-core libertarian, probably self-consciously so. Your friends probably encourage you to quit talking about your views so much.

  1. Traitor! No, not really. But the libertarians (at least the social libertarians, the fiscal ones can go fuck themselves) have their hearts in the right place. They, to me, are a lot like the far lefties who want lollipops and ponies. But I'll replace your vote in MDs Dem primaries, so no big loss.
