A Democan

I’ve been a registered Democrat since the first time I voted. At least eighty percent of the candidates I vote for are Democrats. But I also believe in smaller government and I think maybe we should put a fence around the country. Does that make me a Democan? Or a Republicrat?

I hate the labels too. If being a Liberal means I think that the government should spend some of our tax dollars helping people who can’t help themselves, then call me a Liberal. If being a Conservative means I think that the government should let able-bodied people fend for themselves and not live off our tax dollars, then call me a Conservative. Maybe I’m a Liberative. Or a Conservatal.

Aren’t we all a little of everything?
