Hello!

By the title, you can tell I’m of the hated generation of millennials. Depending on your point of view, I could be a voice that makes you believe that we’re not all that bad or I might just give you one more reason to believe we are all┬áthe scourge of humankind. It’s all up to you. I’m under no illusions, I don’t think that people are waiting with baited-breath for what I might have to say. Really, this is like a pressure release valve for me. I read things and listen to different podcasts and I realized there are a lot of assumptions made about my generation, not without foundation, but I don’t believe anyone should be painted with a broad brush. I think stretching back into the stone age the previous generation has always criticized the upcoming generation. Unfortunately, my peer-group has provided a lot of fodder for criticism, but I’d like to remind the critics: you raised us!

I have a full time job working in a quasi-government agency and I’m a college student. I felt that, I’ve just been categorized. You might be surprised. I do not identify myself with the Left pop culture politics that seems to characterize my peers. My family is kind of strange and might explain why I have my views today. My dad was a Republican and my mom was a Democrat when they were first married. My mom changed over time and now identifies as a Libertarian and my dad is somewhere between Republican and Libertarian. My grandparents are all Democrat. On one side you have Pacific Northwest Democrat and on the other you have Southern Democrat. Why does this matter? Well, from all this I’ve heard just about every side of the arguments during Thanksgiving. Now, I consider myself a “Conservitarian” I’m a cross between Libertarian and Conservative, leaning more toward Libertarian. I’m tired of this bi-partisan idea, I don’t want to identify myself by a party that seems to be a thousand years old. I want to identify myself with principles that are timeless. That to me is the only viable option and that’s what this blog is about. You can love me or hate me, and you know what? I’m okay with that I actually believe in the radical idea of freedom.

    • Thank you that’s kind! Of course I’m using a little hyperbole. I enjoy flexing my satire muscles from time to time. I never want to come across as hateful, but I believe opinions must be laced with steel or else they’re as constructive as jello. Happy reading hope you enjoy!
