    I Love Politics

    Even though I'm pretty young I have always loved watching the news about what's going on in parliament and stuff like that. Lots of kids my age think I'm weird and that it's not cool being smart so they try to undermine me but I don't think that's true at all . All I really want...

    Really considering a run

    for the state legislature next year. The 18 year old in West Virginia that ran and won last year is an inspiration. Got a few months to go over logistics and stuff :)

    Politics = Opinions

    Opinions are for everyone. I hate hypocrites who think what they like, yet dont want others to think what they like, due to their own views. Surely everything is acceptable if you are not hurting others? That would be involving them in your business. People are different. They...

    Politics In a Presidential Election

    Yet again, Ralph Nader has thrown his loserish, if not idealistic hat into the proverbial presidential ring. How many forays into the race does this make? I'm pretty sure he's been running for the oval office since the Civil War, but who's counting? This begs my...

    Not So Much A Love But A Fascination.

    I like the way things have been working here in the good old USA.  It's like a system of checks and balances. Left, right, liberals and conservatives.....In a nut shell, we're just two sides of the same coin. Two wings on the same bird, as I've heard it put.  However recently...

    Who Pays For Your Freedom.

    The conservatives may be right on this one. Freedom is most definitely not free. It comes with a price tag in dollars and in lives of those who protect or fight to expand our freedoms.  My first idea of freedom, when I was young, was all about being able to do what I want every...
