Age: 28
Gender: Male
Race/ethnicity: White (Scots-Irish)
Religion: Protestant/Methodist
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 120
Location: NC Piedmont
Where you were born: NC Piedmont
Occupation: Graduate student, advisory services
Political figure you most admire: Huey Long or Helen Keller (most definitely no one prominent today or in the past 35-40 years)
Favorite President: Andrew Jackson
Political Orientation: Vehemently opposed to both bankster parties - including "independent" politicians who caucus with said parties (e.g., Sanders); even reluctant toward minor parties - including Greens - who still perpetuate the myth that taxes "pay" for spending. Non-negotiable policies: permanent WPA to guarantee full employment, Medicare for All, federally capitalized state banks, bailout underwater homeowners, dissolve the TBTF banks because "regulating" them is kabuki and a fool's errand (clue stick: regulatory capture), Congress selected by lottery (makes campaign finance reform(TM) moot), and dissolve the Fed/return the power "to coin money and regulate the value thereof" to Congress (per Article I, Section 8, Clause 5). Especially furious for being sucked into the Dem veal pin for so long, as they are able to get away with more egregious upward wealth transfer and imperialism than their Repub "opponents" could ever get away with, meanwhile using identity "politics" are their carte blanche. TL;DR: Big-spending, limited power, public purpose government (why people try to collapse these three dimensions into one "left"-"right" axis is beyond me...)
Favorite Musician(s): George Strait, Eric Church, Josh Turner, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, Alabama, Dwight Yoakam, Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Brice, ... , almost anything country!
