My blog posts so far have been pretty straightforward ramblings against things I do/don't like, with a lot of standard libertarian gunk. Now I'll finally get a little more personal.
As strange as this might sound..the more I think about it, the more I think I'm a leftist in a libertarian's body. Although my political views are not leftist, it would probably make more sense if they were.
Confused yet? Allow me to explain.
First of all, I am very strongly right-brained (which is somewhat unusual for my sex and political orientation). I am very much into anything involving art or 'creativity,' and pretty damn dismal at anything involving numbers or graphs. I am also (this is surprising, even to me) pretty emotional and have difficulty expressing intense feelings without 'breaking down.'
OK--I admit it, I love Whole Foods, and enjoy a lot of organic stuff, especially foreign and exotic beverages. I'm not religious or into guns.
I love foreign and controversial films, but can't stand sports--playing or watching them. I'm not into video games or computer games either. I think "cars" and a number of other masculine fascinations are pretty boring. I live in a far left-wing city.
I could go on and on...there is plenty I was going to write that I can't even remember here. The point is, I meet the profile of a leftist in quite a few ways, but am not one (at least not on economics).
Not sure why I had to make a post about it...just kind of off, huh? I noticed all of this not too long ago and have been pondering it lately for some reason. What does it all mean, dammit!?
