    Sooo... I'm not going to shock anyone with this introduction. My name is Sadie, I'm from Maryland, and I'm a registered Democrat (you don't say).
    I work in international development consulting in the DC area. I guess I'm originally from HoCo but lived most of my life in MoCo (Montgomery County if you're not familiar with the DMV.)

    I'm a millennial of the DC metro area, politically active, and a strong liberal. I somewhat volunteered for Jamie Raskin campaign. I've been known to listen to NPR while driving a Prius to a Bethesda Wholefoods to pick up fair-trade coffee and organic kale. The only MoCo thing I'm missing is a Mercedes with a Hillary sticker and a crab decal. (I voted for Bernie anyway).

    That all being said, I look forward to posting here and I hope that it's a community of diverse opinions and void of trolls. I rarely get the opportunity to hear opposing views in my line of work/neck of the woods, and when I do, it's usually either trolling, verbatim repetition of slogans, or thoughts generated out of complete nihilism. I am looking for well thought-out arguments from all sides and serious discussion of actual policy (although I do see sections where we can have a bit of fun :)) so conservatives,please bring me your A-game!

    I am much more receptive (though rarely swayed) by fiscal conservative, small government arguments. Social conservatism, in which the government regulates morality, is a foreign concept to me.

    So there you go.

    By whom have you been known?

    Welcome aboard Sadie!

    Remember:
    • Jake isn't really a Republican
    • Tigerred slips in and out of character
    • There's still a 50/50 chance Hillary drops out before November
