    you but I have the same basic story.  I was always socially libertarian and I still consider myself fiscally conservative.  I was pumped for the Republican revolution in 1994, wanted Bill impeached and eventually volunteered for an organization (Economic Security 2000) that wanted to partially privatize SS.

    Anyway, I would have voted for Obama in 2008 but I couldn't for logistical reasons.  I may return to the Republicans when they return to sanity and reality.  Until then I will be casting my votes for the Dems starting tomorrow.

    It sounds like both of us were pretty hard core and finally saw the light (like Kos himself).  Hopefully others will follow but with the media cocoon that each side wraps ourselves in it is going to be increasingly hard to get people of good faith to see the light.
