The title of this blog used to apply to me, in that I was an outrager. I was 'mad as hell and I wasn't going to take it anymore' when I first got involved in politics. I was taking out my anger on any and all incumbent office holders. They were, after all, the ones who got us into this mess in the first place, right? Not entirely, and before you dismiss me and call me a RINO, let me explain.
I think that I have a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to office holders of any sort and I've done my share of anti-incumbent voting, BUT WITH REASON! I think that if anyone is anti-anything whether it be anti-incumbent or anti-big government, they should have a reason for it, not just to be contrary or spiteful.
Something that I'll give a nod to my good friend, Felicia Cravens on is her new project, Chaos Theory. She came out with a short video, called Outragers Anonymous (hence the title of this blog) whereby it depicts those mad as hell folks, who might not even know they're doing it! Those who constantly complain and make the office holders their enemy and where tea partiers and activists alike may have found common ground in the beginning of the movement. That only gets you so far.
What'll get you farther, you ask? Working on the problem, that's what! I could go down the list of things to actually DO, but I've done that before. I know that I'm personally doing what I can to influence voters and legislators alike, and it takes more than raging! Remember, the first step to recovery is admitting there's a problem!
