I'm a long-time political activist who also writes. I've worked on campaigns in both Georgia and Texas. In addition, I'm an elected official within the Republican Party.
I am a conservative with a strong libertarian bent. I believe that all decisions, including political decisions, must be based on some moral standard or code. Even the choice to be a utilitarian is a moral choice. For that reason, I consider myself a conservative because I believe the best basis for those decisions are Judeo-Christian values in the Western tradition.
I also believe that for society to be moral, it must give citizens opportunities to make personal choices: good or evil. For that reason, I do not want a society that forces morality on people. People who follow the law out of fear are not necessarily moral or immoral; they are forced to be amoral. I want people to be moral, but because they choose to be so, not because they are forced to be so.
I'm a Republican because it is the closest political organization to my beliefs, not because I like the name. I enjoy political strategy, but despise personal politics and people who are dishonest with the people. I don't apologize for being opinionated, but I'd rather build a bridge than burn one.
