hey gang i'm theorist. i enjoy talking politics and just happened to find this board by chance when searching on google. i'm a middle aged male who decided to go back to college and get my masters degree in communication. i graduate in december. if all goes well i intend to go on and get the big degree. i am a conservative republican but you will find i am very pragmatic. i have a strong devotion to conservative ideology but i don't ever think my opinions are the right opinions. i respect the opinions of others and expect others to respect mine. nonetheless, don't hold back because i like a good debate. in addition, i am a drummer. i have been playing music for many years. i have a local band with a group of guys that i have known since grade school. we bump heads often since they do not share my political views. i am the only conservative in the band. anyway, it's nice to be here and meet all of you. looks like a big board with lots of members.
