"Politics" or "I'll just say it."

I find I generally disagree with the majority of my flist when it comes to politics.  I enjoy talking politics...LOVE it... but I like them in a live setting and generally from people that I already have a good rappoir with.  My best friend and I are capable of talking politics for hours, his from his side and me from mine and we generally manage to do it without shouting or resorting to name calling.  We've known each other for years and we're willing to actually listen to each other and concede points. 

On LJ though I generally figure LJs are like people's lockers.  Many times I'll read and roll my eyes but rarely say anything. They are theirs and most of the time they don't want a debate...they want confirmation.  So when someone posts about how much they miss Bill Clinton or how the Right Wing Machine is already stealing votes, or how Michael Steele is an Uncle Tom who is a lawn jockey for the right, who am I to harsh the buzz, man.

When I want political insight and discussion there are plenty of political blogs I go to. 

But you know...people are entitled to their opinions.  And here's mine. 

I'm going to really tick people off and write about how I think in time Bush is going to be viewed as one of the greater presidents in US history and one of the great leaders of the world and did what he thought was right in the face of severe public criticism instead of appeasing and passing the problem on to future generations like their predecessors.  And when they were in office they were haaaated.  People thought they were going to end the world as they knew it for causing war, not appeasing their enemies, not just getting along... leaders like Truman and Churchill and Lincoln.

Just because you're not popular doesn't mean you're wrong.

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?
