Once again, I am not a Republican. I am not a Democrat. I stand for myself. I am a fiscal conservative who believes in programs for helping children and the elderly and in gay rights, and the rights of people to live their lives as they choose as long as it does not harm others. (Oops, where does that put me...oh dear...wheels are turning.). I don't fit into a convenient box. I am not affiliated with any party. I support the party that supports liberty, individual freedom and the rights of humans to be sovereign over their lives.In the American Revolution, I would have been a revolutionary. I don't believe in big government. I believe in capitalism as a means to help the less fortunate without the government taxing us for free-spending programs that are gouging our economy (like Acorn.) Capitalism that works to generate jobs for everyone and caps on huge, obscene salaries for CEO's and less taxes for the middle class. Britain is disintegrating, I am hoping the US doesn't go the same way. (And from a former McGovern liberal---yes, this is a huge turnaround.) In the UK, if I could vote, I would be voting Conservative and a lot of that reason is that it was Lord Ancram who finally interceded for me with the Home Office to get my resident visa after waiting for over two long years. It was maddening and another point against one of the most self-serving, incompetent and big spending governments in history and that would be the current Labour government.. I am still campaigning for Cameron, despite the fact that I am not an official Brit (yet).
I support Cameron because he is least likely (keeping my fingers crossed) to lead this country into perdition. That is not a "hip-hip-hooray" endorsement, but it's a start.
In the end, the big planet is coming to collide with Earth...so who cares who wins the race? We need to think about heading for the hills. Last one there is a.......uh......whatever is not offensive to any group either real or imagined. (I live in Britain, so I have to be careful of what I say.)
