I voted for McCain and (retro ouch) for Palin. What give you the impression you seem to be expressing about the opinions held here?

There’s a small group from the far-right listed above. I typically agree with about 80-85% of the Republican platform. If I agreed with any more I’d question my sanity. Conversely, I agree with less than 20% of the Democrat platform. So I’m on the right. However, I don’t let a small group of radicals/fanatics/racists influence me just because they’re on the same side of the political spectrum. If Charles Manson said he voted Republican, I wouldn’t refuse to vote. The left has their own baggage as well.
