An important element of seeing through my eyes politically speaking, is to consider this; I consider myself living proof to many sides of life through extreme experiences with all the wrong people. I would often use unitelligent judgement through fifteen of the most crucial years of my life and now have "hindsight goggles" and we all learn, infant to elderly, hindsight is 20/20. During that time, I have made a transformation from extreme "practicing" liberal, to extreme "practicing" conservative within that timeframe. Before determining your political stance read the following definitions, and forget everything anyone every impressed upon you to believe. Only then will you be honest with yourself in the voting booth. After all, voting is the highest honor and greatest duty one has to his country and if one is not allowed to vote, he is a citizen nowhere.
