I’m a social liberal and fiscal conservative. I don’t like any politicians I can think of currently, believing most are more interested in retaining their positions than in truly benefiting our nation and its people. Those who truly believe they’re doing good are usually those who think they know better than the average person, and thus are somehow “deserving” of being the ruling class.

I believe people must take responsibility for their actions, whether it be buying a house, making a statement or oath, living above their means, lying, voting, or whatever else they do. Don’t go crying that someone else misled you, or you didn’t mean it, or you were very young … all those may be true, but they don’t absolve.

Let’s see…

I’m not a girly-girl.  I hate pink, don’t like shopping, and have never understood the concept of “cute shoes”.  Give me a set of scrubs, or jeans and a polo shirt, and I’m a happy camper.  I ride a Honda Goldwing motorcycle, drive a Jeep, and don’t have a lot of problem switching from a .380 to a 9mm to a .45.

I’m a gun-rights activist of the grass-roots variety.  I own several handguns and hope never to have to use one in self-defense.  If I do, I’m ready.

I’m a veteran of the US Air Force, having spent 22 years in that institution, and believe it is truly an institution.  Not a good one, not a bad one, just an institution.  I wish it and its people had the character of the Marine Corps or the Army.

More as I think of it.

  1. I want to write you in on tomorrow’s ballot for VA’s 36th district. What name do I write-in?

  2. Todd, I didn’t see your response soon enough. I apologize.

    I may actually run next time. Still considering.

  3. 🙂
