Luigi, no problem we can all get a little quick with the wit on these blogs - just so you know-

I dislike foreign entanglements by this country - especially when we start to try to impose American values on the rest of the world - that is not to say there is anything wrong with our values - it is to say they are ours - this neo-con idea that we can by force just go in and implant American democracy - well that's just liberal. Actually I don't much care for labels either.

As to social issuesI tend to be Libertarian - I do not consider it to be any of the governements business when it comes to moral issues - one would think by now we would know that you cannot legislate morality.

And I'm a fiscal conservative but I do believe it is part of governments responsibility to soften the sharper edges of rampant capitalism, that it has a function to protect the common welfare, and the function of national defense.

Short sweet - but I think you can gather I am pretty much all over the place - said I didn't like labels.

Submitting....
