Freedom or safety, which do I prefer? It depends.
I registered to vote for the very first time as a member of the Libertarian Party several decades ago while attending ASU when I came across a table near the MU offering voter registration. I chose the Libertarian Party mainly out of disappointment in the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. Both appeared to be lacking any inspiring positions and failed to inspire hope. I asked the Deputy Registrar running the table for a recommendation for the party preference box on the form. He told me I could put anything in the box but that he thought that Libertarians would be as good a choice as any. I felt that any choice was worth a chance. I thought, “Why not? It can’t possibly be worse than the other two choices I was offered.”
The first question I imagine a person might ponder upon coming across this blog is to ask “Why?” Personally I prefer to comment on existing blogs. During my leisure hours I try to add a little bit of insightful commentary where it might help the next reader with some little nugget of fact or opinion that might aid in understanding the many interesting places, people and situation that happen here on planet Earth. I live in Phoenix Arizona and focus on commenting on the goings on of people here in my little corner of Earth.
I am a clean commenter so I am not 100% certain as to why AZ Blue Meanie and the Powers That Be at Blog for Arizona have banned me from offering comments at their blog considering I agree with many of the posts 50% of the time.
