Q&A Friday #6: Have Your Ever Thought About Running For Office
Question: “Any thought of ever running for office yourself?” — Bull_Moose
Answer: When I was in college, I toyed with the idea of running for office one day. But, even then when I wasn’t all that serious about politics, I decided that I’d rather be a campaign manager than a candidate. To be honest, I don’t have much interest in doing either today.
Politics requires making too many bad choices you don’t believe in for political purposes, figuratively prostituting yourself to people who can give you money or help your campaign, and constantly holding your tongue when you’d rather just say what you think.
Instead, I’d rather do exactly what I’m doing: build an audience for RWN, take it full-time eventually, and do my best to promote conservative ideas that I think are good for the country. Long term, I think I can make a bigger difference doing that and will enjoy it more.
