vote libertarian

you've got conservatives all wrong

I'd just like to say a few words about politics, religion, the president, the Christian Right, the midwest, Christians in general, and judgment.

I watched SNL last night and there was more crap about how the christian right elected bush and we're all victims of this mass conspiracy sponsored by people who want a church-run state. I'm sick of it. Living in a "red" state, I know a lot of Bush voters. In fact, nearly everyone I know, with the exception of people I know from a certain political group, voted for Bush. And yes, in Kansas, I've run into a couple real stereotypical right-wing Christians... for "the Bible", also for guns and the death penalty, those types (they're very... interesting). But this faction makes up about three of the people I personally know, leading me to believe that the Average Bush Voter is not the extremist moron that every SNL writer in New York likes to think s/he is.

Here are some things I'd like to say about the Average Bush Voter, based on my personal experience: Collapse )
