In my circles, I found myself being the only conscientious voice of objection to us invading Iraq on the premise that there may be ‘weapons of mass destruction’. Looking back that marked my turn toward libertarianism. However, it wasn’t until Common Core started reaching my conscious awareness in my early homeschooling days, that I began my exodus from the red and blue in earnest.
