Yeah that's right.

I drive a fuel-efficient Hybrid, and I even ride my bike when the weather is nice. I believe in helping the environment and reducing our dependance on oil, so that means I must be supporting the Democrat ticket.

I think all this stereo-typing is dumb. These Politics topics promote stereo-typing and name-calling too much.

Truth is, I'm Independent, I'm undecided who I'll vote for, but I'm leaning somewhat for Obama right now. There, 'nuff said. Who's going to be the 1st to bash me or question my decision???????

Two posts with this same theme? Are you attention starved or something?

And I drive a Pontiac Vibe and support McCain.

So, what is the point of this thread?

This cracks me up... The stereotype is not that someone who drives a hybrid must be a democrat, but rather that someone who drives a hybrid and actually rides a bike now and then is a real smug SOB (very well evidenced by the smug emoticon) who actually believes in his/her own proactivity and that if everyone was more like them (which is apparently to say "utterly ignorant of the world around them") this world would be a better place.

"These Politics" have nothing to do with it.

What does independent mean? I think it actually means that you are not affiliated with any political party, but it seems to be understood by homlish as "I'm a free thinker." That's great, but overwhelmingly ignorant and, dare I say, dumb. If you haven't made up your mind at this point, you're a participant in the largest popularity contest the world has to offer. Pull your head out of your ass and vote for Nader.

Democrats are all talk when it come's to the environment (I'm not getting into Al Gore's hypocrasy)

The center of their political machine (Chicago) and home of Obama, doesn't even have a recycling program. (it's interesting to note republican areas/counties near chicago have had recycling programs for over 20 years)

So you hate SUVs, who cares. It's when you start to hate the driver of an SUV is when you're probably a Democrat.

JK, don't hate, drive what you like and we will too.
