"Where do you get your political commentary from right now? Like, maybe list your top 5 YouTube channels, and Twitter accounts?"

I have no subscriptions to any news sources. Only non news interests. I can't help thinking you're trying to put me in a category that resembles someone against 'the left'. But especially if I consider the American 2 party system of party loyalty, I most definitely would consider myself a Democrat. And over time, my voting has been fluid from one end of the spectrum to the other, usually effected by what I believe is most appropriate at the time. Like for instance, after the 2008 depression, I leaned the farthest left I've ever leaned, mostly because I felt more open to the reckless spending of more liberal governments after I witnessed the rich get so much richer with no consequences. But in good times economically, I can shift to a more conservative lean, of course depending on the many political factors of that time as well.

Based on the sources I read and watch, I can't be categorized. I am equally disgusted by coverage from either side when it begins to feel myopic in any way. I can't watch Fox news without laughing at how ignorant that audience must be, and within minutes I fantasize about confronting Tucker C in a dark alley. But I can't swallow hole much of what CNN wants me to feel and believe, although I don't watch traditional cable tv anymore, so those are just loose guidelines of my disposition.

I do like Jordan Peterson, and I did like Jon Stewart's attitude. Name a conservative talking head and I'll likely tell you I'm unimpressed. I gather topics of discussion from any source with a suspicion and if I'm particularly interested, I go wide on my sources, (hard to list them). I tend not to trust domestic sources on international matters.

I formulate my opinions independently and I refuse to rely on any 'team' association. If I feel like I'm getting too much info from one source, I am immediately worried I'm losing my objectivity. I defend myself aggressively from the Internets attempts to quantify my perspectives. I feel free from manipulation from these efforts.

I have mostly liberal friends, and most of my conservative friends bore me politically as predictable. I have some 'far left' friends whom I am amused by, and never trust their opinions on anything, because I smell the agenda's a mile away, when they're not just clinging to a club membership and acting out of fear of losing inclusion, but I can say that about many conservative friends as well.

yada yada. Is all this reasonable as a response for you?
