I'm an individual of eclectic tastes, strong convictions, deep faith, but none of them what anyone would say are "mainstream". I dance to my own tune, staying silent as long as things are going well, being vocal when they don't, and taking over when others can't.
I believe in personal responsibility and accountability. There ain't no such thing as a free lunch, but at the same time, you have to lend a hand up to some who through no fault of their own lands on hard times.
I'm politically a militant moderate in that I loathe the left and despise the right for the simple fact neither knows how to run the country - as is evidenced by our current economic plight. I believe the left wing is incompetent because they can't seem to implement a plan without it costing more than the budget allows. I believe the right wing is evil, because it always benefits the wealthy, usually to the detriment of everyone and everything else.
I am religiously non-Christian, defend my right to my religion, and fight against the imposition of other religions upon me in ANY "moralistic" way. My convictions tell me not to spread my religion and my sensibilities force me to tell you to keep yours to yourself, too.
I am biased and opinionated, but I base my opinions on facts and consider them well grounded. I'm always open to new facts and will change my opinions and biases accordingly, as should any rational, thinking human being. But if you assail my opinions, you had better have facts that support your position that are as well researched as mine.
I'm not an easy person to get to know. I'm slow to trust, and my respect has to be earned. I am unimpressed by titles. I am more likely to be impressed by actual accomplishments.
I believe at the heart of it, we're all human and basically want the same things: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The only trick is to determine exactly how one goes about getting those things.
