I am a 30 year startup CEO that leans right of center and votes Republican 98% of the time. I agree with about 85% of what the Republican and Tea Party stand for. I love the 2nd Amendment, guns, personal freedom, limited government yada yada yada. I’m definitely not a zealot, mostly keep my opinions to myself unless provoked. I have liberal friends, conservative friends, independent friends and we all get along as long as I keep my mouth shut.
Very little of what is going on in the government of the US makes sense to me, some of it frightens me, and the general direction the country seems to be taking scares me. I dislike entitlements but definitely support helping the truly needy, I would just prefer we make them prove it somehow. I believe in working hard for what you want, really hate public handouts and government deficit spending.
We have dug ourselves into a hole and can’t seem to stop digging. Some of the solutions seem simple to me, but I have been around long enough to know that all things are simple until people get involved. I also know that if the federal government is involved, it will get fucked up, cost WAY more than anyone could have ever thought and case unintended consequences that boggle the mind. To those who might disagree with this, other than crafting a kick-ass constitution, what haven’t we fucked up?
This blog is my vent. Having this probably keeps the people around me safer.
