Identity Crisis

Why do people think I'm some sort of liberal left wing nut job? Now someone else has referred to this blog as being "Democrat."

Does favoring a less intrusive federal government make me a Democrat? Is hoping for a balanced budget somehow un-Republican? How about wishing for leaders who don't pander to fringe groups that seek to impose the Bible on the entire country? Hoping for a government that leaves life & death medical decisions to trained medical professionals? Yearning for a President who is mentally capable of understanding the vast bodies of scientific evidence supporting evolution? Expecting that our nation's leaders will defend this country and not lead us into unnecessary wars based on falsehoods, fabrications and ignored intelligence?

If that's what it means to be a Democrat, then so be it.
