Introduction I'm a young economist who, like many of you, was forsaken by a corrupt and broken system. Having been immersed in the world of politics and research, I ventured down the rabbit hole to answer the eternal question... Why? Why, and how, did our country turn into what it is today. What I found disgusted me, and I had to do something, even something as simple as this stupid blog. I am not a Democrat, a Republican, a Tea-Partier, a Libertarian, a Socialist, Anarchist, Communist, or Capitalist… but I do think they ALL have good ideas, and they all have bad ideas too. I believe in balance and compromise, and in personal responsibility and morality. I might post some things that will offend you, or ask you challenge yourself or your beliefs. You might call me a conspiracy theorist, because yes, I do question authority, and I do believe that while the government is necessary and is capable of doing a lot of great things for its citizens, I also believe it (like anything) can be corrupt, secretive, deceitful, and self-serving. So come with me on a ride into truth. You'll never look at the world the same way again.
