Thats essentially how I've been. After my 15 minutes as a Red, I was a
staunch Young Republican up until age 23 or so, even met George, Neil,
and Dubya Bush, Al Haig, William Colby, John Sununu, Judd Gregg and Bob
Smith. I was then libertarian with republican sentiments, and am leaning
more toward anarcho-capitalism now. I must say that for any of you guys
looking for hot intelligent hetero women, the GOP is the place to go. I
met more fine fine women at GOP wingdings than just about anywhere.
