My politics can be described as leftist, progressive, and very liberal.  I voted for Nader in 2004, and voted for the Natural Law Party in 2000.  I didn't vote the other day because I am registered to vote in Inwood (northwest Manhattan), although I now reside in Murray Hill (Midtown East).  Regardless, it didn't matter since I knew that the Democrats would take almost everything in New York.
