I find that usually people are stuck to the political side they have chosen. Is it possible to change sides? What might be inspiring to one to go from republican to libertarian? Extreme left to the extreme right?

I'm in the same boat with you - this sounds exactly like our story.
It doesn't matter who you vote for, you always end up with some damn politician.
I used to lean toward Democrats for "looking out for the little guys," but then I found that, in practice, it ends up hurting the little guys and more. Compassion never comes from the group -- the collective. Just look at Communist Russia

"Both sides?" Demopublicans = Republicrats (both wings of the Corporate Party). A more open debate happens October 23, 8pm CDT
I supported Obama, too, because of his silver-tongued rhetoric. But found him to be more of the same and accelerating toward nightmarish debt and destruction of America and Constitutional liberties.
I believe the US presidents dance to the tune of those in real power. They seem to have had their hands tied for many years now. As the prime ministers of EU contries to those in power here.
It's amazing how moving to a new country can change one's view of the world. I found the same when I lived in Wales for several years.
I used to lean Democratic, but now I'm Libertarian, because environment was getting screwed by Demopublicans and Republicrats alike -- both branches of the Corporate Party.
At present I don't believe someone outside the 2 party system will win unfortunately, so I cast my vote for the lesser of two evils.
