When I was younger I was a left wing Democrat. Gary Hart was my guy. McGovern even.Hell, I voted FOR Bill Clinton in his first term. So, yeah, I was coo-coo-left.
Ever since that Clinton vote, I lived a right wing Republican life. I voted FOR Bush twice.
Well, I don’t consider myself either of those labels. In fact, I dislike all labels. They divide society.
People are inherently lazy and it is easier to pull a political package off the self and buy it, lock stock and barrel. That is so much easier than thinking for oneself.
Many times I am asked about a particular social issue and my best answer is, “I don’t know.”
The Internet is filled with left wing sites twisting facts their way. And right wing sites twisting facts their way. I now no longer trust anyone. Period.
Where is the rational view? Where is honesty?
Not available on this planet these days, if it ever was.
Just my 2 cents. Your mileage could vary.
