Z-man discusses the bubble-land of the elites.
I don't know how Z would categorize me politically. On paper, though, pretty much pure bubble-dweller from birth, and thoroughly elite and privileged even if it doesn't always feel like it. However, lots of reality snuck through my bubble because I wanted it. Part Dirt, part Cloud. Most of the time I have some dirt under my fingernails. I ended up sort-of Goldwater-Reagan-ish.
Politically, I expect little good to come from government and only hope that they do minimal harm. In that, usually disappointed. I have little-to-no respect for politicians, and can not understand political fandom any more than I can related to sports fandom. I have no operational concept of social Progress. I am not a Trump supporter, whatever that means, but I'll vote for him. I will vote for him because I think he would do less harm than his opponent. In the end, that consideration sweeps aside most other considerations.
Am I a Swamp Thing? I do love swamps and marshes...but I live in a pleasant neighborhood and I visit interesting places.
