Sure. For me, it is not good enough to do as my neighbor does simply because he does it.

(although I frequently do unexamined and base things)

Well, see..I'm not doing it JUST because my neighbor (or father in this case) does.

That's part of the reason, sure. But, like all{1} humans, I enjoy being part of a tribe. As is wont in the modern human animal, I'm a member of multiple tribes. "Yankee's Fans" is one of them; and because of who I am, I entangle myself emotionally with the rise and fall of those tribes (for instance, I was quite upset when Mike had that crappy week. I haven't seen that man in a decade.)

Present me with an argument and I'll second-guess it, as I just did. You could've started with whatever you wanted :)

I have tribal and phyle associations as well, and I wouldn't lose them. However, saliently for the upcoming election, I don't wish to tie my emotional health to an outcome beyond my control. Guess that point is poorly-received, or you see it as a loss of engagement or enjoyment or of a natural state. Anyway, I'm done. Thanks for the discussion.
