Rights beyond government oversight

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for June 23, 2024)

I often say politics makes people stupid. I've tried to think of a nicer way to say this, but there isn't one.

I don't tie this to any specific political party, but observe it applies to all of them, through the effect they have on everyone who identifies with the rest...
I couldn't do this without your support.


  1. “If you need to be governed to act like a good person, you aren’t a good person. Politics won’t help.”

    How very true. A person who acts in accordance with right behavior and justice because their own ethic and personal conscience requires it of them is a good person because they are sell-governed. Those who are obedient to an outside dictate inconsistent with their own belief aren’t ‘good’ people, just good slaves.

    1. ...and they'll nearly lose their minds if you point out that they are acting like slaves.
