Libertarian, Jill-of-All-Trades, Capitalist, Bibliophile, Skeptic, and Science advocate.
I grew up in a Goldwater Republican household. My parents still have bumper-stickers and pins that say, "Goldwater in '64 or Big Brother in 20 More" and "AuH2o". My first presidential vote went to Ronald Reagan, and I stayed faithful to the GOP, until the mid 1980's. (Converting my then boyfriend into a conservative Republican!) Around the time my sons were born, I began to split my ticket, still mostly GOP, but some Libertarian. As the GOP increasingly became steeped in statism and fiscally irresponsible, I finally made the leap to full-fledged Libertarian.
Came to Ricochet looking for like-minded people. Thought the GOP and conservatives could use some help turning back the tide. But, I've discovered that conservatives don't want that help. Thus, this is not the "right" place for me.
So long, and thanks for all the fish....
