Return to Riga a February 25, 2004 article by OP-ED COLUMNIST WILLIAM SAFIRE is worth a read for all those political bloggers out there who are doing a lot of blogging and politicizing but who perhaps do not quite understand what freedom means. This article helps put things in the right direction. Freedom from oppression is a freedom which is generally greatly underestimated by those who have been lucky enough to live without oppression.

Hillary Clinton's Gandhi joke is making waves, see Clinton's Gandhi joke.
It just goes to show what politics is all about. Never call a spade a spade.
My family used to run a gas station too.
It is probably a way to success similar to being a dishwasher.
You learn the value of things.
And it is a color-free job.

New York Timies Op-Ed columnist Nicholas D. Kristof, with whom we almost always disagree - but not here - in "There They Go Again" writes about the Presidential election:
"If the Democrats are serious about governing, they should remember the words of one of their nominees, Adlai Stevenson. After one of his typically brilliant campaign speeches, someone shouted out to Stevenson from the crowd that he had the votes of all thinking Americans.
Stevenson shouted back, saying that wasn't enough: 'I need a majority!' "

Another political survey - via Anthony Wells.
I have taken the survey now at
giving again the following very centrist results:
1 left/right +1.5729 (+0.0947)
2 pragmatism +1.1335 (+0.0682)
which puts me nearly at the center of the grid between left and right, though a bit to the right
and equally distanced on the point of pragmatic vs. idealistic, though a bit more toward pragmatic.
In other words, the results of this test confirm the other two political tests taken, both of which give almost identical results.

In order to assess my opinions on this blog, based on my scores on the following tests, I am a centrist.
I scored as a political centrist at the "World's Smallest Political Quiz"
where a centrist is defined as:
"Centrists favor selective government intervention and emphasize practical solutions to current problems. They tend to keep an open mind on new issues. Many centrists feel that government serves as a check on excessive liberty."
This corresponds to my political views quite well. It is always difficult to know how I will vote. It depends on the issue.
On the Political Compass test I had a dot placed identical to the political position of Tony Blair
which was also close to centrist.
This also explains why I define my political party as "non-partisan".
