I am reformed former member of the New Left (1970-1973) who has returned to my conservative/libertarian roots (I was an avid Goldwater supporter in Junior High School and a Reagan supporter in 1968). In the 70's I became a Libertarian (with some disagreements with the Party). I am very-strong pro-gun, pro-life and think that the Culture War will be very difficult to win. I support the Constitution and believe that it is a document that needs to be followed strictly and not treated as a "living document".

The last several years have pushed me into a more traditionally Conservative stance. Because of my troubled (New Left) past I know these Clintoons as well as I know the the back of my hand.

I have lived on the Maine/NH border (two different towns) for 22 years with my wife and two sons. Before that I lived and worked in London, England for a year (before Thatcher), you don't know how bad socialism is until you live under it. We recently sold our home and went on a road trip to look for a place in the South to live. We are renting in Charleston, SC for the time being. I am a huge Red Sox and Celtics fan and really miss them down here.

I have been bullish on the stock market and the economy from 1985 until the end of the 1990's. I am currently expecting a huge decline in the stock market and the housing market (still waiting, I thought it would happen before 2003). President Bush cannot do anything about this, it is the unalterable outcome of the deflation of a "bubble" created by Clinton and the Federal Reserve. My economics are heavily influenced by the Austrian School (especially Rothbard) and I support abolishing fiat money and remonetizing gold and silver.

I am Bullish on America, although I think that we have to work hard to get back to our Constitutional principles.
