About me

I am an idealist, a romantic, and a dreamer, who is increasingly skeptical that his ideals can be clung to, that his romantic notions will be shared, and that his dreams can be realized.
=============================
--Beliefs--
I am left-of-center, politically speaking. I am deeply interested in politics, primarily American and European, and philosophy, particularly the disciplines of ethics and political theory. Some of the major policies I support include:
- Negative Income Tax
- Single Payer Healthcare
- Animal Rights
- Strong Gun Control
- Living Wage
- Legalizing Prostitution
- Legalizing all Drugs
- Gay Marriage
- Hefty Estate Tax
- Progressive Taxation
- Guaranteed Housing
- Guaranteed Food Security
- Voluntary Euthanasia in terminal Cases
- Robust Term Limits
--Books--
I am a certified Science Fiction and Fantasy nerd. Some of my favorite books and series include: Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Dresden Files, The Thrawn Trilogy, Naomi, The Joys of Motherhood, Pride and Prejudice, The Awakening, and The Kite Runner.
--TV--
I enjoy Game of Thrones, RuPaul's Drag Race, M*A*S*H, Law and Order, Criminal Minds, The Office (US), Avatar: The Last Airbender, Last of the Summer Wine, Star Wars Rebels, The Rachel Maddow Show, and Star Trek (in this order: DS9, TNG, TOS, ENT, TAS, and VOY).
--Movies--
I love The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit trilogy, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek: First Contact, Avatar, Castaway on the Moon, Hatari, D-Day, The Fiddler on the Roof, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Star Wars (in this order: ROJ, NH, ESB, R1, SOL, PM, RS, TLJ, AC, FA).
--Other--
I like EDM, Jazz, and Funk, but I'm not picky so long as the music isn't punk, metal, or invective-laden rap. My favorite colors are grey and purple. I am an avid dog-lover, and my own dog is absolutely the cutest. That's me in a nutshell.
