I was re-reading the mission and objectives of this sight today and had to stifle a chuckle when I read the description my wonderfully argumentative friend DHS used for me. In his words I “claim” to be an independent. So the record is straight; I “am” an independent who has recently changed my status from Democrat. It shouldn’t surprise you that I lean to the conservative side in a heavy way, but I do not completely embrace the policies or doctrines of the two available political parties, and we all know that you have to declare something when you register. I chose what described me best.
With that said, I will try to explain myself. I realize it is long, so I will ask for your forgiveness and indulgence now. I have a lot to say . . .
