Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope it will be both informative and resourceful to you as I share my thoughts covering all things political, and some things not.
Now, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a 23 year-old college graduate of the University of Washington, where I received my degree in political science. Yes, you read that right. They actually admitted and gave a diploma to a Conservative at the UW. Shocking, I know.
In all seriousness though, being the only outspoken Conservative in some of my classes wasn’t easy, but to not stand up for Conservative values and principles would have meant wasting a huge opportunity to make an impact there.
Outside of the classroom, one of the ways I was able to infiltrate the Liberal ranks was by getting a position with the UW’s daily newspaper for a quarter. I was the bi-weekly Conservative opinion columnist, and went head-to-head with a Liberal and a Moderate in a feature called “Left, Right, and Center.” My columns usually garnered the most amount of hate mail, with my favorite quote coming from a Liberal after I wrote a column on enhanced interrogation techniques and torture. He wrote, “I hope you regret writing this. I’m confident that you’re going to hell (if such a place exists).” Ah, liberal tolerance….
Well, there’s a little bit about me and my background. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to send me an email!
