Politics is a cancer

It's clear I'm no fan of the political Right or Left. Whichever side is molesting me the most at the current moment gets the majority of my wrath. 

Recently that's mainly been the w0kesters of the Left, but not exclusively. The Right makes a noble effort to be the enemies of liberty, too-- they don't want to cede that ground to the Left too easily.

I'm not too thrilled with political Libertarians when they scold me for being too extreme; to tone it down so Libertarians can win elections. (They give me entirely too much credit.) I get this reaction most often from my newspaper columns.

The common thread in all of this is politics.

When people embrace politics and want to use this tactic to control others through legislation and social manipulation it pits them against everything I value. They don't realize they are the problem; not those who aren't following them off the cliff into the pit of authoritarianism.

If you want to support what I do, you will. If not, you won't.
Thank you.
