“I either have to vote my conscience on issues like the war in Iraq and moral economic concerns while being deeply troubled by issues like the rights of the unborn OR I vote my conscience on abortion and certain aspects of gay rights while being deeply troubled by issues like pre-emptive war and what I see as a decidedly unbiblical favoritism toward the rich and powerful.” (>>)

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand welcome to why i’m an independent. i loathe politics…
This isn’t a question of affiliation, its a matter of both sides being totally corrupt. What a world
we live in…
I took a quiz that told me I was a democrat, but I tell people that I don’t assign myself to any party. Because, as you put it so well, Josh, everywhere you turn there is corruption. I hate all sides. I hide in the shadowy corners of God’s grace until I see a reason to fight for what I think is right. And it can go either way.
I guess I just think that any true patriot votes the issue and not the party line. That said, if Al Franken runs for Senate in
Minnesota, I might be moving.
I just found this reprint of my question on another forum. Nice to know that no matter how alone I feel in this, I’m not really.
Anyone else have any insight into how they navigate this?
