Am I a real "swing voter?"

I've always shied away from the "lesser of two evils" argument in voting, and gone my own way.  More often than not, that has been a libertarian.

The country needs libertarian ideals of non-aggression, fiscal restraint, individual freedom and responsibility, more than ever before.

Neither Loudoun County nor Virginia are going to be electing any Libertarians in partisan races this year.

The Republicans have appalled, repulsed, and frightened me more than they ever have before in my life.

They have, quite literally, gone too far.

In the LWV voter guide, my only independent ("Green") choice for Senate calls first for fiscal restraint and a balanced budget...and then proposes in quick succession three expensive initiatives.

So, for the first time I might vote for a Democrat.  My only problem with voting for a Democrat is that I was foolish enough to ask the question:  "How could he be worse than what we have right now?"  Never ask a question if you aren't prepared to at least contemplate the answer.
