This is making less sense to me as time goes by

Blogging was once fun, bordering on an obsession that I did all the time. Now I do a few searches a week, in a continuing effort to let people know that self-defense works, domestic violence affects everyone, etc.

But when I realized that the Dems were going to win this round, politics lost a lot of interest. What little time I spend on it I feel should be spent writing to my reps. But I don't think anything will stop the reintroduction of another weapons ban. Probably the first of many. Together with everything else we will see in the next 4 years.

Living in the Socialist Republic of America doesn't appeal to me, but when large scale socialism is ushered in by a Republican President - ostensibly a conservative Republican - I don't see much hope for freedom in America. I mean if the Republicans are going to act like big-government, big-spending Democrats, I guess it makes sense that people would vote for Democrats.

(Side to note to all old, gray Republicans: You may think you would make a good President, but between Bob Dole and John McCain, I think we have proved that you won't be elected. So don't run in the primary. Find a young up-and-coming colleague and support them. It doesn't matter though, the Republicans are in the hands of the religious right, and that also turns off a lot of voters - me included.)

So I don't know where to go from here. I may keep up a low-level of blogging, but I'm not sure why. I will stay here because of family commitments, but I will leave eventually. Small Caribbean island anchorage. Keep moving.
