say HEY.... mister RAY.... what be happinin’...TODAY??
now that the poetic part is over, your statement proves to me that you are no longer a conservative.... welcome to the dark side young jedi... you are now a small l libertarian.... come over to the dark side and complete your training... :)
Don’t think I’m a libertarian; I went through that phase, before I got married, where Ayn Rand was queen and I would be selfish, etc. Then I got married and understood just how crazy Rand was...
Nowadays, just like my time allocation, my political goals are prioritized. I’d LIKE to inflict my values on others, but I’d settle for taking away the tools that allow other to inflict their values on me. That way I have still have an option to set an example or to vote with my feet and find a community that I can enjoy (which is where I am...).
