On political ideology

I don’t write about politics too often anymore; it is, to be diplomatically understated, a volatile subject, and I felt beaten down by a few folks when I made any post that took a stance they disagreed with, no matter how politely I attempted to put it. This led to me getting, well, less polite toward the end of the 2004 election cycle, followed by me taking a break from political commentary completely. By and large I haven’t returned to it.

But here are thoughts on why I'm (mostly) a Democrat, and what kind of politician I'd really like to see. Not very ranty, but not without strongly held opinion.Collapse )
