Thanks to Tam at View from the Porch, we have Kit's perspective on the current political scene:
...I used to write about politics all the time. That was back when I thought my “side” could win.” I still keep up with the issues, but I’ve come to the same realization that Jayman has - America does not want what I want out of government. America loves big government. They don’t care about taxes and punishing producers and the non-scalability of things like health care and school systems. America wants Big Brother to make them feel safe. America wants Nanny Government to give them money, food, health care, and whatever else America thinks it’s entitled to loot, courtesy of the producers...
That’s what America wants, because they’ve spent years building up an immunity to authoritarian government-is-my-One-True-God slavery. This isn’t a place for freedom lovers any more, and I will likely be in the minority for the rest of my life. My vote isn’t going to count (in national elections at least) for anything except a depressing whisper of protest, probably ever again...
Read the whole thing. We've added each lady to the blogroll, so drop by and get their take as the show proceeds.
Foor for thought: how do freedom-lovers adjust to long-term minority status, especially when the opfor will not simply leave them alone?
