THE MOVEMENT BUILDS
Granted, homosexuals are free to enjoy themselves (and others as the case may be), but is LJ really a conservative? Gasp! In truth, during this site's creation, it was the intent of the Founders to spend plenty of time bashing so-called libertarians and other assorted right-wing weirdos. I think we provide a healthy dose of that diet for our readers, PLUS we easily out-flank all contenders on the freedom front. Most libertarians infesting the internet are libertarians for the same reason kids colored their hair or wore trench coats at your public high school--to rebel against other ridiculous groups and get attention. (Actually, in So Cal recently, I've noticed a new trend in the attention-whore department: girls carrying their little pet dogs around in handbags. Some even decorate their pets with jewelry. This is usually and indication of two things: a) that only a dog appreciates your personality and b) you didn't get to play enough with a Barbie Doll as a child, or, worse, you have the same intellectual capacity as a child. Grow up and get a life.)
I must confess. I am really a conservative. In order to be the most sanely radical, one must embrace a "permanent ideal."
