Who is I? Simple. I is me.

I am mentally ill. I have suffered from depression for more than thirty years, and I am still standing. I have good days and I have bad days and I have in between days. But I am still here.

Politically, I am neither Progressive nor Liberal, nor am I someone that most die-hard, devout conservative types would consider to be one of them. I am something else, for lack of a better term. I do have something of a libertarian bent, mostly because when I think of issues I generally tend to think of them in terms of civil liberties.

I believe in frank, civil discussion. I do not believe in attacking a person because I don’t agree with their arguments, nor do I believe in trolling or making threats simply because someone holds beliefs or lives a lifestyle that I don’t agree with. This world is enough of a cesspool as it is without the likes of us making things worse.

Mostly, I believe in rational thought.
