I am registured Democrat, but that is just because I was pushed to far away by Republicans. I tend to think of myself as more Independent. I tend to see myself as socially very liberal and economically moderate. I try to take the skeptical approach which tends to land me in the middle of a lot of issues.
For example, I believe in global warming, but I am against organic farming, locally grown farming, some of the biofuels and some reclycling efforts because I see them as bad for the enviornment. I am very strong on free speech, separation of chuch and state, and government butting out of my business (but not the Libertarian extreme).
But out of all the political discussions I have been in, the most heated one was that I am ok with shopping at Wal Mart.
