With that being said I should begin with admitting that I am intelligent- or at least that is what everyone keeps telling me so I'm gonna roll with it. I went to college at a small Catholic liberal arts college called the University of Dallas. There I studied political philosophy; political philosophy? Politics is activity of the polis, or the complete human association which is capable of providing for the daily and non-daily needs of humanity. Political philosophy is the study of all such human activities found in the context of the polis. That includes justice, the best political regime, the soul, the best way to live life, etc. As a liberal arts university I was required to take classes in literature (Greek literature through the modern novel), science (one life, one physical), math, art, foreign language (German in which I minored), philosophy (ethical, metaphysical), history (two American, two Western Civilization), economics, theology (Catholic) and of course politics. That being said, I am most likely able to talk about almost anything.
While I don't make a business out political philosophy it is still a deep interest of mine and I still read extensively. My favorite philosophers include Plato, Aristotle, Thomas Hobbes, Dante, Machiavelli and John Locke.
Despite my interest in political philosophy, my first love is and always will be history. I have been to take my love of history and turn it into something I have learned to love: writing. I am published author of American Indian history and I am currently finishing up a book on the Civil War in the Indian Territory.
I am also an educator. I teach pretty much every Saturday at my job- a children's, history, art museum. I educate on subjects like government, history and science. I have a deep respect for what teachers do. I don't believe education is a true major in college and have very little respect for those who majored in education. I also have strong convictions on how to reform our education system including, but not limited to, ending this way of thinking that suggests every child has a "right" to go to college.
I find it pointless to flirt with someone and as a result have a hard time meeting women. I want to get to know the real person, not someone you're trying to be because you think I will like you that way. If you can't have a serious conversation from the start then we will probably not work out.
