Ex-Republican, newly Independent/non-affiliated conservative, currently trending moderate. In other words, I'm lost in the political jungle. I'm not as far right as I once was. The move began when I finally came to the conclusion the Iraq war was not a just war, gradually began to realize the GOP was full of empty rhetoric, and continued when I stopped listening to talk radio and became more willing to take my fingers out of my ears and hear both sides of the issues - and found out that conservatives don't always have all the answers even if I really, really wanted them to have all the answers. So that's why I'm here: in pursuit of truth where it may be found, understanding that it's not always where I thought it would be. It may not be here either. Time will tell.
