I’m what used to be called a ‘Taft’ Republican: minimal government interference with our daily lives, protect domestic industry and maintain a strong national defense while staying out of foreign conflicts. I detest the globalist/internationalist take over of our political system. Neo-con Republicans and Trotskyite leftists have destroyed our two political parties.
I read Common Dreams along with The Intercept, Counter Punch and Op-Ed news to gain a Leftist/Progressive perspective on issues. This allows me to craft my arguments and counter arguments without getting blind-sided in a discussion. I believe in civil discourse rather than name-calling.
