Hello to all, you may or may not have heard me mentioned on this blog before. I am Eugene's oldest son Travis. My dad has asked for some contributors to this blog, so I thought I would take some time and try and get a few of my thoughts out on the web, although in time he may regret allowing me to do this.
A little background on me, I am 27 years old, spent 4 years in the Marine Corps and am now working in IT as a systems administrator for a financial institution in southwest Missouri. I am divorced and remarried and have 2 wonderful children.
I used to consider myself a Republican, but recently I have begun to rethink my party alignment due to the general hypocrisy and broken state of the party, their inability to maintain conservative values, and my general disagreement with them on many social issues. I did vote for one "Barack Hussein Obama" as you will often hear him referred to on this blog, but have been generally disappointed with his performance thus far. Where does this leave me? I would say it leaves me with millions of other Americans. Disappointed in the 2 party system after watching power voted to one party or another with the same outcome; nothing changed for the better and complete disregard for the will of the people. I think it is time for a real change in this country and am hoping we have some politicians who can do it come the next election.
Consider this an introductory post. I intend to post some things on this blog that may be contrary to the beliefs of its creator, I hope you will at least take the time to read and consider them.
