Around the age of 30, I started on my path towards becoming a political junkie and ultimately a political addict. It was thirty years ago is when I canceled my subscription to The Village Voice and replaced it with The Limbaugh Letter.
I admit my addiction and that I have become powerless to control my online life which has become unmanageable.*
Truth has become relative and any intellectual disagreement is often labeled as hate and/or some type of phobia.
I’ve grown weary of the hate. It is time for me to go “Cold turkey.”
There are lots of things I can say as I consider taking one, last hit of my drug, but will hold my tongue.
I am done and I ask for you all to be my accountability partners and call me out if I stumble on this path of online, political sobriety.
Be careful what you wish for America. You just might get it.
*Please know I am not making fun of the first step as it has been part of my life for close to 17 years.
