Goodbye To All That.

Here’s why one guy decided to join, and now more recently, leave the Libertarian party. I became a card-carrying Libertarian in the early 90’s, while I was finishing my first stint in college (and yes, they DID actually send you a laminated card for your wallet). I took a test one day that determined my political leanings were of the Libertarian / Conservative sort. And like Mr. Green, also a fine outstanding drunk, I too changed to Republican for the 2000 election, but for a different reason – I wanted a smaller government candidate, and G. W. Bush sounded better than the others. Boy, did I get bamboozled! Maybe I was as drunk as Mr. Green a.k.a. “The VadkaPundit” was when he became a Republican, but either we’ve both changed our stripes, or our stripes no longer fit in with the political landscape. I can’t call this period a political hangover, but I can say the current state of politics leaves me feeling a bit queasy and dissatisfied. I am at the same point in life as Mr. Green, were nothing anybody is saying in the political landscape is sounding like anything I can support. And like Mr. Green, I am on the verge of going it alone and becoming an Independent.
