I'll always be a Republican, much in the same way that I'll always be a dumb 'ole Iowa farmboy. It's the way I grew up; it's where I came from. No matter how far I've moved on from that time- and I'd say it's probably the same for anyone- your roots leave their mark on you.
The Motley Moose was founded as a moderate, inclusive, progressive place to discuss politics and the path of our country. With a unique voices from other places like MyDD, DailyKos, LittleGreenFootballs, etc, something that can't be found anywhere else on the internet. But even so, the general audience on this site skews heavily to the left.
So what brings me here? Why do I hang around?
