Am I Really, Libertarian, Or Will I Find The Right Keyword?
(NWR) – I’ve never been much of a political person, generally, nor an activist of any measurable sort, but in some manner, gradually; through no conscious effort which I can attribute it to, I now believe that after nearly fifty years of my drawing breath on this whacked out planet, that if I had to classify how I have come to lean, politically, I would call myself a Libertarian. If indeed, one’s being Libertarian is actually being political? I curiously look forward to any feedback in this regard, if anyone would care to indulge?
Not sure why, but I find it significant somehow, that if I am exposed too heavily or for too long a period of time to either right-wing or left-wing political philosophy; either by means of a television set, radio or internet connection, I invariably end-up so frustrated and disgusted by the prospects that loom before me, that I am prone to the rigors of temporary insanity.
Be it a Sean Hannity – or a Rachel Maddow, either, bi-polar, episode of one or the other, in large enough doses, manages only to turn my stomach over. Even a mere internet news aggregator such as Matt Drudge is eventually capable of pissing me off royally, despite his not publishing so much as a single interesting paragraph of his own (think I can safely exclude the ghost written Drudge Manifesto, simply upon the universality of its reviews). His link titles alone, suffice. Yet, for the sake of an art which the man evidently lacks, I am nevertheless obliged; nearly everyday of the week, to sift through the Sludge Report (couldn’t resist using a familiar tactic to him) that he compiles, for something to inspire me, because I tend to write more prolifically when I’m seeing red. Alas, I suppose, being one of this fellow’s 33 million visitors per day, I suspect my own web site story link won’t be aggregating in Drudgeville anytime soon. Unless, of course, its this very article, due to its merely mentioning his existence, and that it just may wind up getting around somehow. Wish me luck, if you would, that the silly fellow chooses to Google’s himself again today. If just 1% of this human parasite’s die-hard patrons clicked on some link of mine, I would virtually enjoy an surge of 300,000 page visits. Outlandish, isn’t it? Perhaps, Drudge, shies away from linking news analysts or opinion writers, preferring his own mercifully somewhat clever (some of the time), political inferences – so as not to be upstaged?
