Do you consider yourself liberal/progressive (as in left-of-center politically)? If not, why do you want to join this group?

I have always been liberal with some conservative values. However, things that been going on in our country has moved me to be very distrustful of the far right and hs moved me to the 75th percentile on the Left.

Are you a Baby Boomer (born 1946 through 1964, roughly), or nearly a baby boomer, or at least fond of baby boomers?

I was born in 1945. I have always considered myself to be a baby boomer. Being a History Major, I greatly disput your arbitrary years that you set for a "Baby Boomer" How is that for a first discussion. lol. I could give you a historical treatise on the dirivation of the term "Baby Boomer" and show how your years are not accurate. If you truly on the Liberal side then I would be a full fledged member of your group. I don't want to be a BABY about this but, I WANT IN. PS As you can see i do have a sense of humor.

Favorite places/activities/events you would like to see scheduled?

I can't think of anything in particular right now, but am open to ideas.

Are you active with any charitable, civic, or political groups or activities?

I believe our Freedom, Rights and Liberty are dependent upon Open Minded People freely sharing their ideas and opinions. I also believe in the cycle of history. The United State has seen these same challenges we have today in the past. We have always been able to overcome them. I pray with a group like yours we may be able to make a ripple that may become a wave. Look forward to meeting open minded people. Jim

Do you care to add something?
