Years ago I was in a mechanized infantry unit. I loved it on many levels, except correspondence courses while covered in mud and oil wasn’t something I was willing to do. Professors who lied about the U.S. military on a daily basis prompted me to look into conservatism, and economists like Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell brought me home.
I believe hard work, honesty, optimism, and perseverance are a recipe for success. I believe seeing yourself as a victim creates a self-fulfilling prophecy. I believe in God. I’m a USC Trojan with an MA in Political Science from American University.
After graduate school I conducted youth outreach for The Heritage Foundation. I now work as a writer for The Washington Times.
