It strikes me as interesting that some folks on this forum see my posts supporting Obama this election, and right off I am labeled an extreme left-wing socialist Marxist Stalinist Leninist, Che Guevarra-t-shirt wearing pinko, lazy pothead hippie, etc., etc. But I guess this is, after all, a gun forum. Among my friends, I'm viewed as leaning conservative. I'm probably the only one of them that carries a gun everywhere; a lifetime NRA member; that believes in capital punishment; that dislikes social welfare of any sort because I think unearned wealth corrupts the soul [I think Alaska's annual PFD payment is absurd and socialism defined]; that believes Islam is a serious threat; that thinks our government is a thousand times too big; and that would limit the role of said government in general to protecting our national borders and, when needed, our natural environment. I believe in personal responsibility; I just don't think that just because someone calls themselves a "self-made man" (whatever that means), makes them better than someone who went to college. (As if those two are somehow incompatible). I just happen to also like strong environmental controls because I spend most of my time outdoors and have seen what "business interests" tend to do to nature. Also, I'm agnostic. I guess I am, after all, an extreme librul.
