Sorry for the relative brevity of my original posting but I am at work. To expound a bit, if you called me a conservative, I would not necessarily agree but I would take it as a compliment. If you called me a Republican, I would take it as an insult. That might be too idealistic of a viewpoint but there it is.

I am fiscally conservative in that I think our govt is too bloated but I am no longer a budget hawk. This change is from witnessing our govt and others function over the years and especially the time a few years ago when our bond rating was downgraded and yet people around the world bought more US bonds.

I could go on a lot more but it's back to the salt mines for me.
