Chicago, IL, United States
Atheist, Democratic Socialist, Navy Veteran, Aspiring Socio-Economist & Student of Life.
Born in the Chicago area in 1985. Lived in St. Louis from 1996 to 2004. I served in the U.S. Navy from 2004 to 2010. I went to film school at Full Sail University in Orlando, FL. Worked in the freelance film industry in Louisiana 2012-2015. Moved to Atlanta, GA in 2015; but ultimately decided to pursue a new career in Economics and Public Policy. I’m now in school earning a degree.
I am an avowed atheist. I feel that all theists should be respected and afforded the same dignity as anyone else. However, if one does not afford me that same consideration I can and will retort without compunction.
I am a social democrat. I'm not a communist or a fascist.
We need a system of government where money and party politics are not prioritized over the consensus of the electorate.
The modern Republican Party is an embarrassment and a disgrace.
Libertarianism is a half-baked idea that sounds like a great on paper but, once you get into the details, doesn't provide the tools to realistically maintain a society based on universal individual rights, social and economic justice, and basic human equality.
Our Democratic Party is far too conservative.
Our Constitution needs a structural overhaul.
Feel free to ask me about any of this, or about anything else!
