Wednesday Sept 12 Primo argues with someone who won't vote for him

Primo: I wasted some time today. I started arguing with someone who isn't going to vote for me.

Me: About what?

Primo: Gay marriage. And then government.

Me: What about government?

Primo: She said that the US is the best country because our government derives its power from God - that our country was founded on biblical principles.

Me: What did you say?

Primo: I said that our government gets its power from the consent of the governed.

Me: Ah. You're learning.

Primo: What do you mean?

Me: You think that the people work for the government, not the other way around.

Primo: That's not true!

Me: You used to think that it was up to government to say it was OK to do something and that everything that wasn't defined as OK was bad until I convinced you that no, everything was OK unless it was illegal.


  1. I'm just shocked that Primo admitted that he wasted some time! All this door knocking must mean he gets to meet a lot of nutcases.What is his strongest selling point? Is he a convincing speaker? I'm trying to paint a picture of him in my mind.(Like all the best crazy fantasists do!)

    1. Primo is sometimes not a very pragmatic person. I am ruthless with my time and don't want to waste it in the "what should be" world, but Primo has a permanent entry visa.
