The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Ideologue of Ideologues

In light of his refusal to raise taxes to pay for Hurricane Katrina relief, it is gradually (or quickly, depending on your perspective and involvement in the issue) becoming clearer how George W. Bush intends to conduct his Presidency: cut taxes, no matter what; never raise taxes, no matter what; wage war in Iraq, no matter what; run up deficits, no matter what it does to our country or to future generations.

Talk about ideologues, President Bush seems determined to conduct his Presidency according to a certain rigid ideology, one that he believes is good, but that I find particularly irresponsible. But hey, who am I to say? History will judge, and the American people will judge in the elections next year.

Our country is seriously out of whack. It’s time we swung a little back toward the left, just a little. A lot of people agree.
