I consider myself a Moderate Democrat. I will put the country first before the party if I feel the party is hurting the country. I am liberal on some issues but not all. I weigh the options and it isn’t about sitting on the fence but really delving into the issues at hand and not “toeing the party line” which I refuse to do.
I think some liberal views are a tad skewed (I don’t believe in total social liberal policies, if you spend, spend wisely, and I don’t believe in everyone owning guns nor could I stand it when Bush was in charge…gag me)…there has to be a limit on things and as an American feel I am fortunate to be able to express my views.
As far as the current administration is concerned it was hard for me to accept the $3.6 trillion budget resolution. I understand our country didn’t get this way overnight…the economy simply sucks and I see it slowly recovering but still that will take time. Just use it wisely and not just bailing out companies whose business practices (hmmmm GM anyone?) are questionable and greedy.
