Hmph... I *am* a conservative, religiously speaking (i.e. I don't support stem cell research, and I was happy when they illegalized late-term abortions), but, I like the more active role of government and programs the dem. party offers. I would like to think that I am easy to talk to and I do not berate others with my beliefs...however, I will not change those beliefs and morals just because they are currently politically incorrect.
Because of this I usually end up straddling the fence and voting by-candidate and not by-party. At present, I don't like ANY of the candidates that are running... and NO, I wasn't hoping that Huckabee would get the nomination (just because you are/were a preacher doesn't make you qualified to be president).
I knew that rush limbaugh was far right (politically) but I think he is not as hard right religion-wise as he is in terms of hard-core republican policies.
