The Dawn of Zen

Saturday, 20 May 2017

When I was a liberal, nothing changed except for the worse.
When I was an anarchist, nothing changed except for the worse.
When I was a Libertarian, nothing changed except for the worse.
When I was a Conservative, nothing changed except for the worse.
When I was a Trump Voter, nothing changed except for the worse.

No matter who’s in charge, taxes go up.
No matter who’s in charge, prices go up.
No matter who’s in charge, freedom fades.
No matter who’s in charge, the bad guys win.

God is in control.
Satan is in control.
You are not in control.

It’s always been this way
Will always be this way

So relax and get those dishes
done.

A Democrat or a Republican? Larry Elder answers

Wednesday, 23 January 2008

Mr. Elder does a great job summarizing the differences between the two parties, and they are vast. Far from being clones, the two major parties differ not only in policy but in their approach and conclusions about life and how to go about it.

I often dwell on bitterness and complain about how life sucks and is unfair, sometimes even with flare and elegance, but my core beliefs remain conservative.

For me, conservatism answers much of the chaos of life; because its values evolved over centuries of trial and error, it should not be dismissed as readily as liberals wish it to be.

And now, without further Apu: A Democrat or a Republican?
