Thank you. I'm glad you took my comments well. I would enjoy further discussion with you as well.
I don't mind if someone considers themselves to be to the left politically. There is still plenty of opportunity to find common ground. My own political opinions have become more eclectic, in recent years as I have learned to see more political ideas and their affiliations as historical accidents, I've come to rely less on grand systems and logical cohesion, and have learned to differentiate civil society from the market. But I still consider myself primarily libertarian, and will defend this often misunderstood underdog when I have to.
I just realized that you're in OH. I was born in Akron and have lived in Cleveland, Canton, Cuyahoga Falls and now I'm in Columbus. If you ever come down here for anything let me know, ok? There are several members here, mostly college girls :)! I may be 51, but I still like to party with new friends.
