    Hey there everyone!

    Not sure where, exactly, I fit on the political spectrum.

    I'm seriously laissez-faire oriented where business/economics is concerned and strongly oriented toward individual liberty/rights with personal responsibility and strong but very limited government(especially strong where national security/defense, individual liberty and property rights are concerned).

    The above tends to get me labeled as a "conservative", but on many issues, such as LGBT rights, women's rights, same-sex marriage, legalized drugs/gambling/prostitution, etc., all of which I support, my individual liberty/rights stance tends to get me labeled a "liberal".

    I also get called a "libertarian" fairly often, which in many ways is pretty close; except that unlike most mainstream libertarians, I'm not an isolationist; and in fact I think we absolutely SHOULD be the world's policeman; both because if we don't, the world power vacuum will be filled by the likes of Russia and China, and because I think that role has been and remains tremendously beneficial to US and world security and US and world economic well being.

    So there you have it. "LibConertarian", perhaps?

    You, you get points based on the name alone. Awesome stuff there. Keeping rocking it.

    We seem to agree on several things actually. I am very much for personal liberty and rights and don't think that one person has a right to tell another how to live.

    I know introductions are always rough but we're glad to have you here. I don't think you got to worry about the white hand either.
