Instead of focusing my anger at liberals, I started losing patience with the Republican Party. Liberals, however much I might dislike them, were who they were. Republicans were supposed to be something better and they had failed.
That’s exactly what I feel but on the opposite side. I see no point in ranting against Republicans. They are who they are, and I never felt like one of them. What do I care if they are fucked up beyond all reason?
But we! We were supposed to be different! Better! At least a little bit! We aren’t supposed to be in thrall to a tea-party-style bunch of raving lunatics who are howling at the moon and telling us we are crazy if we don’t join them. I had an opportunity to catch up on my DVRed Tucker and saw clips from the conference of the Democratic Socialists. The clips featured grown men throwing fits about how loud chatter triggered their anxieties. Spoiled rich brats competing in who’s the biggest snowflake. And these are the people who now rule us. Every Dem candidate is toadying up to them, the disgrace!
Izgad’s profound (and very understandable) disappointment with his party led him towards libertarianism. (Or something he calls anarcho-capitalism). Where should I go, though? Libertarianism is definitely not for me, although I respect some libertarians. (Not Charles Koch. I hate that bastard.) I keep thinking that the bad moment will pass, Biden will stop trying to figure out the number of genders, Warren will quit making an idiot out of herself with the pronouns, and Bernie will go back to being against the Koch brothers’ agenda. But it keeps getting worse.
