it is a fine question indeed asked by my friend time- he's good like that. :) i really don't know. i am one of those people who is passionate about common sense and fairness and neither are a prerequisite for being a politician. i guess i want the impossible- which is why i get frustrated. in my head- i know that people as a whole- and politicians in particular- act in their own best interests. i know that they won't do what they are allegedly elected to do- carry out the business for the people. i guess i am looking for someone running for office that will do their job in spite of the corporatocracy- and i know it isn't going to happen. why do i get behind causes? i don't know. i guess i am also a sucker for the underdog- and i jump in to fight for them without really knowing which fire i am trying to put out. i believe in standing up for each other and standing together- and sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't.
i guess i still blog and i still rant here out of a sense of solidarity with other bloggers- as a way to communicate with each other and maybe in the grander scheme of things- make a difference. in the grander scheme of things- there really isn't any reason for me to type on this keyboard- other than a sense of belonging to a community of like minded folks; folks who make me think; folks who are there for support and for sharing. i guess perhaps that's what i am looking for. the rest is just window dressing.
