27. okay, you voted libertarian, so that's different

no one pissed in my oatmeal.

I'm just noting the irony of your position. obviously this bothers you because it interrupts your narrative of the reasons it's good to support conservatives - who happen to have a "D" after their names -- and you try to pretend it's somehow different b/c you voted for the right wing libertarian party?!?!?


and then you have the nerve to try to play some sympathy card - that no one can note how ridiculous it is for a former republican and/or libertarian to have anything to say to liberals about voting - because you lost a loved one. -- others here have had family tragedies too. but most don't try to use them as a way to deflect criticism about their lack of insight into the reality of American political life.

that you do speaks volumes.

as I said, you need to go do some outreach among republicans - that's your audience - not those who have known what you seem to have been unable to see for decades... and maybe still cannot see...
