Thanks to Tabula Rasa, here's an explanation of my Rico-me.
I chose No Caesar for poetic and illustrative reasons. No Caesar because I am opposed to the thinking that says the strong man/ruling class know best, that such "wise men" should take care of everyone else. I have seen up close the sausage-making that goes into "experts' " efforts and know that a healthy scepticism of their pronouncements is prudent.
For all its imperfections, inefficiencies, and picayune distractions a democratic republic of limited government by an engaged citizenry is the least-bad form of government devised by man. It is fairest to the individual, while raising the most people the highest out of the slime and slog of poverty and despair that (unfortunately) is the natural state of too much of mankind, for too much of history.
Also, Caesar dressing is really caloric and I have to lose weight.
The "I Am Breitbart" avatar picture is my meager homage to a great man who was cut down too soon. His scowl also fits with my unfortunate, too-often tendency toward dour, seriousness in pronouncements on political matters.
