After being greeted by the cast of the muppet show and after a few friendly suggestions, I'm introducing myself on the intro-page. I'm conservative when it's necessary & liberal when necessary. I'm not hot or cold, black nor white. Yes I have opinions, but what I mean is I'm not an absolutist. I'm for strong but small gov't, strong military, 2nd amendment, gay rights, environment. My brother is gay. I'm a war vet. I'm pursuing a degree to one day use in the alternative industry. That's where I sit in a nutshell. Was suspended from a tea party forum today for basically not blindly backing Romney like they asked everyone to do & for essentially having an independent thought process. I like to think I've been accused of having a brain. I think it's funny and showed my fiancee what it was that got me suspended & she said, well, what makes you think any other political forum will let you think for yourself. I told her, well, I'm more hopeful than I should be. This particular fish pool likes brevity, so I kept it to pop-up book format rather than a novel, LOL! See ya out there!
