I have been many things to many people. A husband and provider, a son, brother, father and grandfather. A union and environmental organization leader, a sportsman, a player and referee. An employee, fellow worker, teacher and student. Today I am mostly a student. Who I might end up being to you, we can find out over time.
I am energetic, passionate, and libertarian in my outlook. I can be intensly political, but mostly conserning personal freedoms. I truely beieve that we should all live and let live. I am not niave enough to think that is always possible and so there must always be some basic rules, but they should be a limited as reasomably possible to allow the greatest freedom of choice.
I believe in enlightened self interest. That everyone has the right to freedom of thoughts and actions and only when their actions have tangible negative effects on other should they be restrained, and then as lightly as possible to control the negative consequences.
I believe that we can all make our own decisions but we must be willing to accept and live with the results.
