How do you identify yourself politically? Please be as specific as possible, preferably avoiding a single word identifier.

I am a devout believer in the Individual. I believe that, given the freedom to do so, mixed in with drive and passion, an Individual can accomplish amazing feats. I believe that Government should play a roll in our lives...but a very limited roll. I believe that we should take care of each other, but not by mandate. I believe that our Constitution is the most unique and inspired in history. I believe that we are fortunate and blessed to be able to take part in this Grand Experiment that is America. I believe in you...in us. I believe in the Bill Of Rights. I believe in the power of the spoken and written word, and I believe in the transformational power of IDEAS. I believe in compassion. I believe that Love is stronger than all of the misery, hate, spite and pain that the world can muster. I believe that shining light on darkness is a duty that we all share. I believe in TRUTH, no matter how uncomfortable. Speak it...live it. Peace.

How did you hear about this Meetup group?

My friend, Drew, came up with the idea.

Are you willing to engage in rational and respectful debate with members whose political views may not agree with yours?

Absolutely. I wouldn't expect anything less.

Do you understand that anyone who disrespects or belittles another member will be removed from the group, regardless of political affiliation?

I would hope so. We're trying to fix real life problems, right? No time for drama!

Introduction

I am an educated, well read, complex and multi tiered individual. I'm fascinated by a wide array of topics, and I love to discuss said topics. Oh, and I like monkeys and sloppy garage rock.
