Badnarik '04

Remember to vote for Michael Badnarik for president

I like feedback, and so I set the "post comments" setting to anyone, so anyone can post a comment without having to register. It helps me write to the people who read my blog.

But don't troll or flame, I want intelligent comments.

And don't forget to vote, especially if you are voting third party.

A random rant

I don't look at numbers when I think about what I believe. Just because a given belief has more followers, doesn't mean it's right. I look at all sides, and then figure out what I believe, regardless of whether or not other people believe it. I think we would all be better off if we all did this.

With that said, I endorse Michael Badnarik for President of the United States. He stands for true freedom, and small government.

Remember, take everything anyone says with a grain of salt.

Internet Browsers

For all of you still using IE, you should switch to Firefox
a open source, cross platform browser. It is also extensible. I have extensions on my browser to allow me to control my music player from the browser, one that displays local weather conditions, one that randomly renames my browser, and one that blocks ads among others. It has popup blocking built in, and is not vunerable to spyware installation via ActiveX.

Seriously, check it out.

People like to conform too much. When you think about it, conformity is really just accepting an idea that is given to you, often by a social group of some sort. Stuff like how to dress, act, think, what to buy, what music to listen to, and other stuff like that.

The problem is, once you start conforming in a few areas of life, others naturally follow. When everyone starts dressing the same, they are more likely to think the same. When people begin to conform to a certain way of thinking, it naturally precludes new ways of thinking. By definition, this effectively prevents truly new ideas from surfacing.

The massive amount of conformity in our society is holding us back, and must be reduced.

Read that last sentence again, trust me.

There is good news, though. When people begin conciously examining a few areas of their life to determine whether they are conforming, or are truly being themselves, it naturally spreads to all areas of their life. Many people trick themselves into thinking conformity is who they are, though. One must take a step back, and ask themselves "Do I really act in a way that is consistent with what I truly and most fundamentally believe?"

Sleep deprivation makes me sound more intelligent to myself.
