Except for some debate experience in school, I have not been all that political. I vote, I like to think I am a good citizen, and I am an independent voter. I have been called a fiscal conservative because I believe in getting a buck's worth of bang for every buck spent. I have been called a socialist because I supported healthcare for all for free. I do not like political labels, but I think 'independent' or 'citizen' is best for me. I believe in giving the less fortunate a helping hand when needed, but I think some people need to be motivated toward hard work, (There ain't no free lunch). By motivated, I mean tough love if necessary. This will probably offend members of both political parties, but I picked the user name 'Stainmaster' because it seems we 'independents/citizens' end up paying the bill, and cleaning up the mess of every half-baked idea political parties promote. I am angry about the Wall Street bail out, as well as the influence of unchecked organized labor.
