Can you agree to conducting yourself in respectful and civil manner as you engage in thoughtful dialogue across political divides in search of win-win solutions to the issues we all care about?

Absolutely. Even with the people I disagree with, I think it's absolutely important to maintain respect and openness to other people's ideas and views on positions. I think it's important to stick to facts and logical arguments when talking about political issues. I believe that's what's missing in politics, on both sides of the aisle.

What does transpartisan mean to you?

It means, to me, focusing on the core problems of society and politics instead of getting lost on peripheral issues. It means putting aside some differences in order to talk about and devise solutions that matter to everyone.

What most closely identifies your political point of view?

I'm a libertarian or classical liberal. I care a lot about social issues as well, and I'm interested in locating the sources of social problems such as poverty so that we can figure out where our current approach has failed.

What is your primary website, social network or blog?
