So who am I, and why am I a Republican, and how am I a Heretic?
Well, who I am is not that important. I’m just a guy who works in hospitality management and follows politics. I work a lot, so I don’t post too often anymore, but I’m making an effort to post more in-depth content on a more regular basis. Other than that, if you want to know anything about me, just ask. Be warned, though: expect nerd humor and Firefly references. And I will use profanity on occasion.
Why am I a Republican? Because the GOP’s current message of limited government speaks to me. And frankly, because the aristocratic agenda of the Democrat Party is far, far more threatening to me.
Why am I a Heretic? A few reasons. I am essentially libertarian in my politics (or “South Park Conservative,” if you will), so I deviate from standard GOP positions somewhat. I could care less if two guys want to get married, and I think that drugs should be legalized. I’m also Pagan. That’s right, as in idol worshiping polytheist. So some of the more religiously centered rhetoric of the GOP may not appeal to me as much.
But I agree with far more Republican positions than Democratic positions. Limited government. Strong national defense. Free market economics. Family values and religious devotion (although not in ways many Republican might appreciate). So for now I side with the GOP.
