I guess you could say that I recently came out of the closet. I had been a party line Republican because the alternative, killing babies and taking all my money, is not attractive. But Republicans and still taking all my money and then wasting it still so over the past 3-5 years, I have trended more towards independence from the two party system.
I slowly turned Libertarian. Was I born a Libertarian and just now realized it? Hard to say. I've always been a bit rebellious and annoying, like many hard core libertarians. But I questioned my orientation when I realized that the public school system is doomed to failure because parents and trying to use it to raise their kids instead of doing the job them self. That opened my eyes to a whole new world. Not everything is D or R but there is a L. Libertarian.
And I'm not alone. There are lots of people just like me. That share my frustration with the nosy Democrats trying to legislate everything to death or the useless Republicans wasting money while pretending to be against waste. At least the Democrats tell you they are going to waste your money on more programs and crap. You know what you get with the Clintons and Kennedys of the world.
So I found another good article from someone I did not expect to be a Libertarian. Dave Barry. Not only can he voice opinions with class, or at least a kind of class, but he also is funny, which makes reading that article very easy. Go ahead. Don't be ashamed. I promise you won't feel dirty afterwords.
