Here's Why I Avoid GroupThink Places-Man Banned From DailyKOS for Edwards comments

11 August 2008 at 3:29:13 PM

I quit going to kos a long time ago. Even did a podcast about why Kos doesn't Speak for Me after I realized a whole lot of people in the media seemed to divvy up people into categories that implied "If you're the Left, You Must be a Kos person". AS IF! It is entirely possible to have a left  or populist philosophy without being a KOS groupie. This guy had some comments he wanted to say about Edwards and why he avoided facing the media after being caught running for the elevator, and was banned.

For a very short time, I was a part of another groupthink type gang, but I quit after discovering that there was a private ugly side to the group, and that they expected their members to pimp posts according to one person's recommendations. I'm not a fan of pimping, more particularly in cases where a post doesn't become popular naturally but because of pleading emails to Go Pimp That Post, etc. (Yeah, I did another podcast a couple of years ago on that, too. )

To me, the purpose of me having this blog is to be able to speak my mind, whatever the political expression. Sometimes I notice, as with the Trans Texas Corridor, that my opinion is also the same as a lot of Republicans and Independents. That just shows me that there are issues that defy being put into idealogical party buckets, but are common to us all.
