About me

Gender MALE

Occupation Semi-retired CPT, CES
Location Northeast, United States
Introduction A man of varying interest who spent much of my life trying to excel at that which I did not love but rather at what I felt I would make more money doing. A mistake as it turned out, one probably made by many. But what the heck, it paid the bills and gave me a good life. Writing, music, and ballroom dancing are my hobbies, dancing I rarely get a chance to do anymore because of time and ailments. But hey, we all get older. My passions? Philosophy, politics and the quaint notion that we all deserve to be free of oppressive government. My strongest beliefs? That government should be limited, that individuals are more important than the collective, that capitalism is the most effective way to motivate people and create wealth, and that liberty carries with it a great responsibility. Many people today seem unwilling or unable to recognize this. My burning desire? To maintain a website/blog with the goal of helping to shift the political discourse in America back to a more reasoned and nuanced tone. and away from the divisive and bigoted rhetoric of the present age under the Trump administration.
