And you don't think I can point to right wingers who think I'm a leftist? It happens here all the time with people like BEP, Sportsshrink, and billay calling me socialist or RINO or whatever. Does that somehow make me a moderate? I don't think so. I'm a conservative who is skeptical of big government and, based on what I've seen from your posts, you're a liberal who embraces it. It doesn't matter that we both have a streak of pragmatism or that we both have some issues on which we'd disagree with others in our camp.
