    Greetings, while I am not new to discussions on internet message boards, this is my first account on a purely political/current affairs forum. In RL I recently graduated from college this past December with a BA in Criminal Justice, minor in Political Science, and will be attending law school this upcoming fall. As far as my political leanings are concerned I am generally right of center on the vast majority of issues. On the economy I believe in low taxes and applying a Substantial Due Process test to all proposed regulations of businesses & commerce. On foreign affairs I have become an advocate for an approach to analysis & policy formulation that embodies the core concepts of realpolitik. I believe in a generally strict & originalist interpretation of the articles of the Constitution, but I understand the value in a "living document" approach to the interpretation of the amendments of the Constitution.

    There is obviously more I could say, but for now I'll hold off. I look forward to discussing the issues and hope that we can have lively debate on these boards.

    Thanks

    Welcome Garinold.
    Be prepared for some good debate, some lousy debate, name calling, and my all time favorite, labeling.

    Garinold,

    I need to know two things about you:

    1. Are you white?
    2. Are you Roman Catholic?


    Your answers to these important questions will determine your future dealings with Father Yukon

    Welcome aboard my friend! From a 3L in Law School graduating in Dec, I say good luck. I just hope for your sake the trend of astonishingly growing cost of law school reverses. When I started out it was $800 a credit hours only a few years later it is close to $1,300. Take just $1,300 x 90 credit hours and you have a hell of an expensive education!

    Sounds like you're going to be a great addition to this monkey house, Garinold.

    We need more right-leaning thinkers here.

    Welcome Garinold. I note with interest that your online name is an anagram of organ lid.
    Is it cold where you come from?:eusa_whistle:

    To answer a few questions;
    Yukon
    - My father is Caucasian & my mother Hispanic so I guess I'm a hybred
    - As far as my religion goes I would have to consider my self a Christian-Existentialist

    It is cold half the year where I live.

    Welcome to the boards.

    I have no idea why you were able to have those core beliefs after many years of being spoon fed the progressive's agenda.

    They will say this: Our schools are failing, we need to spend more money on education. (translation) we need more progressive teachers and books. :lol:
