    Default Departure

    I started to read American periodicals and newspapers in the Eisenhower era.
    I was in my early teens. I followed American events to the end of the Nixon days.
    I was a moderate Conservative. A Republican.
    I thought Eisenhower, and especially Nixon, had a sound fiscal policy.
    Today my sympathy is with the Left.
    I changed? I have not moved anywhere.
    Politics follows the consensus:
    The appellative is a misnomer.

    You left the Right because the Left is right?

    I could say the same. I'm by philosophy a Goldwater Republican. Which today, I suppose, makes me an ever so slightly left-leaning centrist. I didn't leave the Republicans. They hitched a ride with the Ralph Reeds, Pat Buchanans and Dick Cheneys of the world and left ME.

    Marlene left, too.
    Left is right for me. I am left handed.

    Yes.
    Consensus on the other hand is found in love. Politics is only the art of the possible.
    Give in. Drop out. Make love. Read Rousseau.

    My doctor forbade me to talk or even think about Ralph. I get these migraine attacks.
    Pat followed in the footsteps of King Leopold in Africa. Diamonds are forever.
    Dick is a shooter, too.
    He does not shoot straight.
