    What are C&V owners politically

    How would you classify yourself politically?
    Proverbs 6:6-11 - 6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. 9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? 10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

    politics are like poetry and underwear.
    Useful in the right forum, but otherwise something you should share only with your SO & grandmother.

    Does anyone think Velocity Deep V's would look dumb on a (fully-geared) Miyata 912? (I need to reliably support 240lbs, not a hipster here.)

    I like updated equipment on older frames, especially rims. So I don't think deep V's look dumb.
    So does that make me a liberal or a communist?

    The Jungle. Don't give me too much credit here, I probably butchered the quote horribly.

    I am dead-center on an American scale*, which arguably makes me somewhat conservative among citizens of first-world countries. I am surprised and disappointed to see so few self-identified moderates in this poll, because I contend that we centrists comprise a 47% plurality, i.e., a near-majority, of American voters. If we could get our act together and stop being divided among independents, Democrats, and Republicans, we could take back control of this country from the two overly polarized major parties.

    How about some of you actually checking...

    http://www.politicalcompass.org/

    I run a private forum for a group of friends from back in the 70's. We used to hang out in our high school days.

    For the group, everyone who took the test was in the lower left quadrant (liberal). Two of us were very close to the center point between the quadrants, which earned us the label of "flaming moderates" in the gang.

    So, I went with moderate.

    I'm the kind of guy who both the Christian Coalition and Move On would hate with a vengeance.

    I'm a life member of the NRA who supports gay marriage; wants the government to deal with national defense, regulate interstate commerce, and virtually nothing else; wants a flat income tax collected on April 15th with no withholding so the taxpayer can actually see what the government is taking from him (as well as forcing him to actually save the money prior to payment - nothing like a little fiscal discipline to make a better life); is an absolute hater of anything politically correct (years ago I quit quitting smoking because it started to become mandatory); and as long as my sex life consists of (fill in the number depending on my mood at the moment) consenting adults, will brook absolutely no restrictions as to whatever practices I care to indulge in this weekend. Oh yeah, I'm also a patch wearing outlaw biker. And am an absolute believer in personal responsibility for whatever actions I've been indulging in - none of this lawyer crap.

    I guess that makes me a libertarian in principal - except that the libertarians disgust me with their ineffectiveness. You don't run a candidate for president until you've won a lot of local elections for dog catcher and country commissioner positions.

    Little Darwin - took the political compass test and am in the lower left quadrant as well. Me, your friends and Gandhi. I will assume Gandhi was an avid biker, cycling through India while leading the masses.
