I guess it makes sense that people are Republican, or support a Conservative (Tory) party. Obviously they exist (George W did get re-elected after all, and let's not even get into the fact that I live in a Tory riding now). But I never expected these people to want to travel Europe. If they're American, live in a Republican state, are Republicans, hate a lot of liberal things (eloquent huh? Yes, things, for example, gay marriage, abortions, etc.) I would never expect them to venture further than their backyard. To want to see and explore all things Europe. It just seems strange to me. I guess I expect all travellers/backpackers to be liberal in their world views and to support the same things I support. I know this sounds naive and stupid, but I dunno, I just assume it's true. Clearly it's not.

I also find is soooooo strange that I can love and revere an author who is STRONGLY Republican. Who makes me laugh and laugh and I rush out to buy her books on the day of release (except for her newest, since they're not published in the UK yet, so I have to wait until I go home in August to get it). Huh. Yeah, it's weird.

Obviously political leanings do not define a person completely. I know that. I'm not saying we should judge everyone because of their political views, I hope people don't judge me because of mine. I don't know what I'm trying to say...I'm rambling I know.

Alright, I'm done now. I must go and prepare some food!
