Johnny Rumble:
Breaks the Politcal Silence

To say that I am a political anything is a bit of a stretch. My dis-love for politics can actually be traced right back to my earliest days pre-school. Without all the back story, the teachers learned that I am incredibly hard-headed with a completely unwavering sense of what is right and what is wrong. I have always been this way. Because of this, the view that all politics is inherently bad, inherently evil, and completely self-serving became my own.

However, I do know where I tend to be on the political spectrum. I am an anarchist, but not in the traditional sense of the word. I like the idea of government. Of fresh government. Untainted by the years of corruption and bigotry. I view anarchy, not as THE system of government, but as the carrier for change in the system. I full accept that true anarchy can never be realized. People will always have their set of moral values that they will hold to. As for choosing a certain political view out of the choices offered, I am all of them. There are some issues where I can agree with conservatives (strong military and strong drug interdiction policies), liberals (conservationism), socialism (limited healthcare, National energy), and libertarianism (Legalization of marijuana, little to no government oversight into personal lives).

Frankly, High school jaded me to politics and I just stopped caring about what's going on in Washington anymore. I've started to live my life how I want to, with little regard for the rules that others impose upon me and will continue to do so until I either go to jail or die.
