Both offer state representation and promotion of NASA in the senate, which is super important to me. I guess Nelson gets my vote solely on the grounds of his stem cell and gay rights stances.

As for Alan Grayson in the House, he gets my vote because he is, in all practical purposes, a very Libertarian oriented Democrat. Very big on ending wasteful spending, anti-war spending, etc. He's by no means a Libertarian, but he certainly has a lot of economic qualities of one, and many that I like.

I'm not a Libertarian by party. I hold no party affiliation, and I decide on who I vote for by standing the candidates up one next to the other and comparing what I like more.
Ahh, okay, got it. If you don't mind me asking, do you generally agree with libertarians economically (but are somewhat ambivalent), or something else?

I guess so, yeah. So as you imagine, someone like Ron Paul is the ultimate ideologist for a Libertarian. I love Ron Paul as an ideologist, but not necessarily as a realist.

However, if you take a look at someone like Gary Johnson, he's much more of a realist. There's balances, there's not full consistency with ideology (rightfully so), etc. I would say that the mega-Ron Paul craze aside for Libertarians, I'm much more in line with Gary Johnson than I am with Ron Paul.

I'm familiar with Grayson, and like what I've heard him say. So even though I can't vote for him, I send along support for him winning.

Also, Cori's post . I kind of want you to say that to those idiot politiicans' faces.

*Sighs*

Yes, because none of the men who've run things throughout the centuries have EVER fucked anything up, right?

I'm just checking our calendar-it is still 2012, right? Haven't been sucked into a weird time warp or anything?
