    Time To Meet New People

    Things are really heating up in the tenor of modern political discourse. As such Iíve felt compelled to set out, and see if that passion is a product of the times, or a product of the place where Iíve experienced it. So a break from my old haunt is in order as I set out to experience new places, and meet new people. I look forward to seeing what this place has to offer. And if Iím lucky, perhaps Iíll even have something to offer this place.

    Well... I’m a registered Republican from the Heart of Dixie. I’m originalist in my view of the Constitution, and very keen on defending the 2A. In fact I’m more interested in restoring the 2A, than I am on the continuation of its current bastardized, interpretation. While this has often times resulted in the butting of heads with fellow proponents of the 2A; I find that it’s worth any “hard feelings” either one of us may experience.
    Additionally my stance on the Republican Party is also sometimes met with criticism from my fellow party members, but hey... A little healthy infighting can be a good thing now and then. Being a conservative I disdain this “train-like” behavior that the Democrat/Republican dynamic has taken on over the years. The way I see it; the Democrats are the engine, and the Republicans are the caboose of a left bound train, and Conservatism seems to be the hobo who fell off the back many miles ago.

    Bastion? Did kids want to pick fights with you in grade school?

    Cool...welcome. Everyone here has their own private chip on their shoulder. You gotta sort that out. So...feel free to pick a fight. Pretend you are in Portland.
