Oh, this is going to get me in trouble. The Goat Dancers will twirl and leap and turn flips.
First off, this blog is a sideline. I am not defecting, or quitting, or retiring, or WTF else gets thrown at me. It’s simply an experiment I am trying to see if anything can be done with it to the advantage of the Northwest Republic. Are we clear on this?
Please refrain from pelting me with e-mails screaming about how I am betraying the very gods themselves by soiling my keyboard fingers in System politics, and think about what I have been saying on Radio Free Northwest and elsewhere. Yes, yes, I know, we are all supposed to keep on hiding in our little cyber-caves while we continue to preach to our tiny little audiences of two dozen people, but I think it’s time we started trying to force our way at least onto the periphery of actual politics. We can continue to be “pure” or we can at least try to accomplish something. I’ve decided it needs to be Door Number Two.
Also, let’s take all adverse comments about Republicans as read, shall we? I am well aware of their multifarious faults and will in fact be commenting on those facts extensively on the blog.
I’m kind of curious: how many of you actually get this and understand what I am trying to do here, even if you don’t necessarily agree with it?
