9. I'm far to the left of most here.

If anything, a Social Justice Catholic and a radical ecologist. If don't succeed in living up to my ideals in "real life" (I still drive a car, for example) I can still surely seek a path in politics that leads toward my Utopia.

I'll strongly support Obama because he's an extraordinarily competent leader whose goals lie somewhat in the direction of my own.

Romney and Ryan make my skin crawl, the same sick feeling I got witnessing Bush and Cheney. I think Ralph Nader played a part in Bush-Cheney horror too, maybe not so much as the corrupt election officials and the Supreme Court did, but Nader certainly contributed to the suppression of the Democratic Party vote. The Democratic and Republican Parties are not the same.

And yep, I'm "Pro-life" too, but it's not mine to make that choice for anyone else. I think there's something terribly wrong, yes even sinful, about the people who protest in front of Planned Parenthood, obstruct Planned Parenthood's funding and the funding of institutions like it, or think people like Pharmacists should be able to decide for themselves not to supply a town with contraceptives or "morning after" pills.

I'm flying my Rainbow flag here at DU at least until gay marriage is federal law. Marriage is a civil right.

If you can't tolerate people telling you that you are rude when you have been rude, if you can dish it out but you can't take it, well then no, this is not the place for you.

I've enjoyed quite a few angry outbursts in the years I've been here, and I've taken some heat for my positions and sometimes my strong language. But I'm still here.
