I was born a poor Black Child... Nah, just kidding, I'm White but grew up poor. Born in 1960. My Father worked as a dairy farmer, my Mother didn't work. I'm the youngest of 4 boys. In 1970 my Father had a heart attack and was disabled and could no longer work. My Mother picked up a job picking mushrooms (no shit) part time because she still had to care for my Father, Brothers and me. We got Gov. Assistance, food stamps, no cash benefits. That was back when you had to go to the welfare office to pick up your food stamps, then go to the distribution center for your Gub'ment cheese. (2 lb block) and powdered milk, canned shredded chicken and pork. I realized years later that my mother was an awesome cook because the meals she was able to pull out of that shit were amazing. Because we were on welfare we got lunch tokens for school lunch. Being 10 years old and wearing hand me downs was bad enough but then they called you out into the hall to receive your token, and every kid in class knew who the welfare kid was. I got into a lot of fights. This lasted until I quit school at 16 and my Parents signed off for me to enlist. I left 3 months later when I turned 17. And although those years were pretty bad, I look back and am thankful that we had what we had. 
Politically, I'm a Conservative. Small Government and personal responsibility is high on my list.  That being said, I realize, through my own experiences that Government assistance is important and that people who need it should have access to it. What I don't approve of is generations on assistance. Kids, teaching their kids, teaching their kids how to scam the system. The system itself, makes it difficult to get off of assistance. We need reform.
I voted for Trump. He wasn't my first choice, I was leaning toward Johnson and being a Vet, couldn't vote for that lying whore of a dog Clinton and Sanders was to far left. Johnson was a flake. Unprepared in the debates. Clueless. Stein? Nah. That Left Trump. Hey, I voted for Reagan so...
I'm am pleasantly surprised at trump. He is pretty much upholding his campaign promises despite the push back for the RINOs and the deceitful media.
I expect to vote for him again in the upcoming Presidential Election. Democrats have no one.

Oh yeah, I'm married and have three girls. 32, 20 and 18. I also own several handguns and am licensed for concealed carry. My oldest carries also and so will my two youngest when they turn 21. They will not become victims.
I also like cats, I have one. His name is Stoopid. I Kayak fish, mostly salt water, Striper, Flounder, Black Sea Bass and Tautog. Long walks on the beach and holding hands, quiet moonlight dinners and snuggling.

I'm a 35 year old white male (German/Italian/English). I'm a traditional Libertarian, though I haven't always been a Libertarian, I used to be a conservative in the 90's.  Well I was a conservative as far as the definition describes and not what it is today. I'm not a lover of the left/democrat philosophy and up until our current president I'm no lover of the Republicans neither.  I'm not a very compassionate person towards people who can do things but won't for any reason.  I've been interested in politics since I was 21 and have voted in every election since I was 18, however I don't normally vote in local elections.

As far as education goes I have a BS in Architecture and an MBA from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!)with a concentration is Human Resources.  I work as an Architect at a large company and actually enjoy it.  I've lived in Michigan my entire life with the exception of my military service where I lived in Washington and Oklahoma. I have a wife and no kids but she's expecting our fist child soon.

I am heavily into sports, Hockey, Football (American), snowboarding, hunting and fishing. I love snowboarding since I was about 18 though I don't do half as many tricks as I used to. I used to be on this site quite a bit but now my work only allows me a few posts a day.  I've been hunting since I was 13 and been fishing all of my life.

My turn ons are puppies, kittens and walks on the beach
Turn offs: liberals, Birkenstock sandals and vegetarians




Where did you go mate?

I was reading random posts from way back and I ended up reading a bunch of your political posts.

What do you think of politics today?

Waiting for the newbies, like you, to post about yourself.

I am in a minority on the shroomery, as I frequently defend the opposing side when they have a point about something or when my side make believes something about them.  People here get very confused by that and think it means I prefer the other side.

Lets to a small negromancy with this post:

Male
29 years Old
Spanish, part castillian, part basque and part andalusie that for some reason is the part blonde with blue eyes.
Studied Mechanical engineering, ended up as a software developer.
However i spent most of my teenage years having problems with authority, now that i earn enough is different i guess.
I prefer to avoid labels, but since everyone is labeling themselves:
I am kinda far-left oriented more into the anarchist side that the socialist one.

Socialism and Communism is evil and the scum of the earth. Anarchists are completely against all things socialist or communist.

First political experience - aged 6 - conned into letterbox delivery of Australian Labour Party How to Vote flyers by grand father.

Home state of Qld, known as The Police State.

Was in high school in the 70's during the reign of the corrupt Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen

Took Citizenship Education as a subject due to influence from Left Wing Socialist teacher(who also gave us the use of a shed for our band to practice in).

Saw dad on strike many times. He a Life Member - Electrical Trade Union.

Found my own electrical trade apprenticeship after finishing Year 10.

Saw massive change in electrical industry, worked West Aus, Northern Territory, Queensland in construction field.

Held shop steward position on construction sites, mainly for safety reasons, sort your own fucking pay problems out.

Walked out the gate on strike many times and marched to various government offices and been as obnoxious as required by organisers.

Became disillusioned when drug testing took the fun out things.

Retrained again into Renewable Energy field.

First court appearance 15. Have taken police on in court, and won, twice. Have represented myself in court. Have been mistaken as solicitor by solicitor.

Am now masquerading as a business owner.

Still playing guitar badly.

Wish I had tripped on shrooms earlier in life.

born in the UK, immigrant parents father from Netherlands and Mother from Turkey, currently studying in college. I think maybe names/labels are not such a good thing but maybe they are convenient in this case so, i guess i could be called anarchist communalist idealist. I think revolutions are always called too late and by then it is already too late. My turkish background leads me to be quite into kurdish communism but I don't believe in the eventual dissolution of power. Socialism although less idealistic is simply a convenience escape to what is necessary. I think regulation is no means to solve any problems. Regulation shouldn't be necessary there shouldn't have been an opportunity in the first place for corporations to become so expansive, which is the reason why 'regulation' was invented. People talk about separation of powers as if they balance things out now that is abused powers learn to take shots from each other and will find infinite ingenious ways to exploit each other for them eventually leading to a champion. We are well on our way to finding out who the champion will be and we are narrowed down to only to less than a hundred competitors likely of winning at this stage. We have come to the point where there is no more rooms on the final battling ground of the giants, and hopefully by then all our problems will be solved by war.

35, Male, Utah.

Republican Mormon until 2008.

Ex-Mormon liberal until about 2015.

Centrist/Libertarian since then. Socially liberal and fiscally conservative.

The reason I left the left was because I realized they're as religious as religious people are, just without the religion. In our modern climate, the political left is the party of censorship, cancel culture, heretics, heresy, dogma, heathens and apostates, etc...

I never thought I'd see the day where the party of censorship wasn't religious republicans but liberal leftists, but here we are.

My biggest platform is anti censorship and the exposure of what is truthful and real. Psychedelics help bring me here.

Yoroshiku.
