You know what? I'm tired of fighting about politics.


I'm sick of it. I just want to have my beliefs, and live my life. Of course, that's precisely why I became a libertarian, but whatever.

I don't want to shove my beliefs down others' throats. Really, I don't. I just wish that what other people thought didn't affect me. Frankly, my fellow Americans scare the hell out of me. And not just the Bushites. There's a whole crapload of liberal-progressives that have just as puritan of an agenda, and all the moral high ground they need to whip the country into Stalinist shape. Downright fricking scary.

I guess the best thing that could happen might be if the two extreme wings could just kill each other off, leaving moderates in the middle. What we really need is a newfound distrust of the state, but I'll settle for a simple civil war.

But seriously, I think the answer to this for me is to politick locally. I have all the respect in the world for Libertarians who work the national circuit every four years with no hope of victory, but I just don't think I can handle it. I can barely handle state politics. Maybe I just need to find someplace I like - someplace where I actually can see myself caring what others think.

Bah, I'm tired. Or as the say here in Tappahannock, "tard".
