Hello everyone. I've been off the grid of online political forums (not this one) since the early Obama years, and I decided to jump back in, when I can. Life takes up a lot more time now than it did 6-7 years ago. A wife, couple young kids and a career in management in the auto manufacturing industry will do that. I drift towards discussions involving economics and international politics, given my education background, as well as some military topics, given my time in the Army. To give an idea of where I fall politically, I've usually been supportive of people in the mold of Paul Wellstone. Not too many of them around, sadly. Hopefully I'll be able to find some good discussion.
