So I was reading some article about the Southpark creators the other day in some old magazine and I saw a quote from one (I forgot which) that pretty much sums up how I feel about politics...
(Regarding the concept "Southpark Republican":)
"Yeah, we have seen that. What we're sick of—and it's getting even worse—is: you either like Michael Moore or you wanna fuckin' go overseas and shoot Iraqis. There can't be a middle ground
. Basically, if you think Michael Moore's full of shit, then you are a super-Christian right-wing whatever. And we're both just pretty middle-ground guys. We find just as many things to rip on on the left as we do on the right. People on the far left and the far right are the same exact person to us."
Moreover, this quote almost nails me exactly right now in my life(also from the same interview):
"I hate conservatives, but I really fucking hate liberals."
I know I'll probably get shit for it but that's how I feel..right in the middle. My friends are primarily liberal who seem to have good ideas but don't know shit about what to do with them except complain and my family is conservative where ideas/values seem limited but they know how to "carry them out."
I feel like I like some of the plans/ideas/values my friends talk about but they annoy me because I don't think they see the whole picture (I'm not saying I do either but they don't even want to think of the other possibilities), but then I feel like my parents (and rest of my family) have the seemingly right economical standpoint (we do fairly well) but don't really think about their actions...
So here I am stuck in the middle (no not libertarian-middle) and starting to care less about both the more I hear about it, ESPECIALLY in media, music, movies, ect...it's everywhere
ON EDIT: So I just got back from seeing "V for Vendetta" (which was overall pretty corny forgettable movie, an excuse for "The Matrix" to return except with knives) but my friends raved saying "Man it fits into pefectly with what's going on right now too!" I'm telling you it drives me right up the fucking wall...
