The American character already contains several dynamic opposites. It is the job of each generation to choose a balance point in many issues. I enjoy debate, which I find most useful to me when I discover my original position has been changed.
Becoming one of the "adults in the room". To quote an attribute often ascribed to one of my software technology heroes; Bill Joy, co-founder of SUN Microsystems, a quiet, humble, living genius and geek god.
Social progressive, fiscal conservative, Ralph Nader supporter with an increasing tendency toward local small government libertarianism. I guess in a word; open-minded, solutions based.
semi-retired Embedded Computer Systems designer/programmer living in Seattle. Involved in several progressive political organizations though respectful of the life experience and views of all citizens involved in civic discourse.
A good group with diverse backgrounds and opinions.
