Am I the only one?

No. I'm not the only one. Sometimes it feels like I might be -- but we are not alone, despite the best efforts of those who sit atop the heights of pop culture, media, and government to make it seem that way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnNJv5yNZjE Not a country music fan, but I am a fan of that...

The conservative one, more or less, although if I call myself anything, I'd say I'm more like a constitutionalist libertarian. (Socially liberal/economically conservative, all that.)
