He was with the Florida branch but left over problems he had with Bush/Cheney.
I'm not saying I'm with him 100%. I don't believe you are 100% with Obama. Maybe you are. But I'm not 100% in agreement with ANYBODY but myself.
As I said, I talked at length with my friend running for Congress. He has had MANY long plane rides with Chuck and obviously had plenty of long talks with him. I was convinced that Baldwin has his "personal" beliefs and his "public" beliefs. To clarify, he is a pastor and obviously has his religion at the center of his life. But he knows that's not everyone's view and isn't about to change the First Amendment.
On nearly everything else, I agreed with his views, certainly leaps and bounds more than the two "mainstream" candidates.
I felt a little bad due to all the work I had done on behalf of Ron Paul, but since he didn't win the nomination, and he had endorsed Chuck, I voted my conscience.
I find hard core Libertarians are usually skirting the line of anarchy. That's why I can't get on board with them. We have a new state party called "The Moderate Party" that is trying to gain ground. I've been thinking of getting on board with them. In general, I describe myself as socially liberal and fiscally conservative. What party does that put me in?
