"Equality, rightly understood as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences; wrongly
understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism." - Barry Goldwater
I am not a republican, nor am I a democrat. I do not seek anarchy
nor do support totalitarianism. I do not argue opinions, and I do not
believe everything that is presented as fact. I believe in logic, but I will not condemn another person for their feelings. I hate no one. I like all
genres of music. I will taste any type of food at least once and I will
learn about any culture, religion, people and ideology I do not know about. I have had relationships with women from all races and religions, and
friends from all over the world.
There is not one movie or book that I do not appreciate, no matter how bad it is, because I can see the amount of hardwork that was put into it. I do
not agree with everything or everyone I see, nor do I pretend to. But, I respect everyone's opinions and won't try to change their minds as I would
not want anyone to do that to me. I feel as though that this is one of the biggest problems in the world today. Everyone (not including you) is so
quick to judge, argue and try to assimilate everyone else to be just like them, that we can't even allow our selves to have differences in opinions
and life styles without fighting, killing, name calling and hatred, even when someone else's beliefs or opinions don't even directly affect someone
I believe in the pursuit of happiness. I feel as though these two quotes are some of the most important things I have ever read, and try to live my
life by them.
"Everything in moderation, including moderation."
"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue."
I do not drink, nor do I do smoke or do drugs. I have no problem with anybody who does, to each his own. I believe in that phrase, almost 100
I am generally a pretty happy guy, due to my beliefs and the way I feel and conduct myself, there are very few times in which I find my self angry.
For the most part on a day to day basis, I have no reason to be angry. Though, I do get disappointed. I feel myself disappointed in the fact so many
people are so angry all the time and little things set people off like a switch. I don't mean big things, I mean things like arguing over which video
game console is better, or which political affiliation trumps over who. But, even with the disappointment, I wouldn't try to argue with them or even
stop talking to them. I am sure I have opinions people don't agree with, but I would hope that they would not stop talking to me because of them.
I don't like the edit button. I will probably never use it, I feel as though if you say something you should stick by it, spelling mistakes and all
. I have been on this site since aprox. 2005. I like pretty much a little bit of everything, I can't think of one specific topic that doesn't
I don't shove my religious or political views down someone else's throat. If we end up discussing it, I still won't become overbearing, nor will I
argue, because the truth is nobody knows what is "right" and what is "wrong". We are all just people on this planet trying to make our way.
I help people as much as I can through small little gestures of kindness. Strangers or family, it doesn't matter. I don't hate police, they are
people too. I don't agree with all laws.
I don't like the fact people have such a small group of "friends" throughout life. I don't like the fact we are around tons of people everyday,
but are at the same time so secluded from them. I often walk up to strangers to make friends. When watching movies I always think about what everyone
elses life is like who isn't the main character. I love riding the bus and train For this very reason. I feel as though we as people are making the
world smaller and smaller by technology, but at the same time are becoming so much farther and farther apart.
I believe in taking action when you feel injustice, but doing it in a way that will get you the results you seek. Planning things out logically is
only half the process, I feel as though many people want change but never do what needs to be done until its too late.
I personally am split between two ideologies concerning our physical body. One part of me thinks we should take care of our body 100 percent and keep
it in good shape, while another part of me thinks it's just personally choice and that in the end it won't matter. Though I think of those two at
times, I keep my body in shape.
My primary point of this introduction, is to show how different people truly are. We are not just one thing that can be boxed and categorized into
different departments that describe us. I try not to judge a book by it's cover, ever, and I feel as though I am fairly good at it. We live in a
brutal and chaotic world, do not mistake my kindness and civility for naivety, and do not mistake my patience for the inability to take action. I have
been cut, burned, drowned and beat but I will not change what I believe in, nor would I expect you to either. While it may seem that I do not have
strong feelings for certain topics, I do. I will just present it in a "take it or leave it" sort of way. There are injustices in the world, and
those are the things I am concerned about changing, not the mind of someone who is already set in their ways.
Haha, reading through this it seems as though I have written a manifesto setting my self up for a conspiracy theorists dating service. I just love to
write, I find it calming. As you can see I tend to babble on, you will learn more about me soon. So for now, thanks for reading and I can't wait to
interact with you guys further!
