I blame my San Francisco hillbilly upbringing

Decended from self-reliant gun toting goldminers, but infused with the socially accepting views of my home town.

I have always remained openminded and not entrenched in any political idealogy. I planned to one day research all the issues and make up my mind. So at 40 (yes, I've been an uninformed voter for far too long), Ron Paul's anti-war message brought me into the liberty fold and opened my eyes to so much more. I always voted democrat (except for voting for Perot, twice, because I believe in fiscal responsibility), because the republicans weren't fiscally responsible either, and seemed like hateful bigots to me. Ron Paul cleared up a lot of things for me. I have fully embraced his extremely fair style of conservatism.
