You just described all the politicians in Washington, Democrat or republican. I do not use the terms liberal and conservative. I voted this year for the lesser of 2 evils. Not so much FOR Romney but AGAINST Obama. I am leaning more right, and this is definitely not how I was for 49 of my voting years. Only reason for this is because I disagree with the left's platform lst election and this election. Neither party defines their plan for the next 4 years, so we just coast into oblivion as a nation??? Unless it furthers their cause, no one really cares about us peons and what is best for our nation.
