This is supposed to be
A land of freedom
Where the individual
Can be true
To themselves
And follow
Their own heart
And conscience
Without fear
Of retaliation;
Then why is it
As part
Of a political minority
I can not speak out
And express myself
For fear
Of backlash,
Of being ridiculed,
And of being
I am conservative
On some things,
Liberal on others,
So I consider myself
A political moderate,
But rather than acceptance
It's rather like
Being damned
If I do
And damned
If I don't!

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 5/10/2012
A lot of the issues are extreme and have little to do with the center of America. It's your right not to belong to any particular cause or party. The best thing you can do is to avoid the arguments and vote your conscience. Anyone who votes a straight ticket is an idiot. We need to encourage good people to run for office and not just those that will milk either side for the money.

Another God damned independent,

Seems we are losing more and more of them everyday ... God help us! Sad!
