I am an ordinary American who believes that ordinary Americans are extraordinary people. Ordinary Americans cover a diverse spectrum of political, religious, moral, and ethical perspectives. In my case, I am a committed evangelical Christian who is conservative in both faith and politics. I work with a non-profit organization, and I am an aspiring author. I have lived and worked in different parts of the United States and in a couple of foreign countries. This has enabled me to look at my country from within and without, and broadened my perspective on the place of America within the global community.
I am concerned about the spiritual and political climate in the U.S. I have a deep admiration for science, when it is truly scientific. One of the difficulties that I see in our present day is a tendency to politicize both faith and science. Another is that some segments of science resemble more a religion (it is considered heresy to question certain “scientific” dogmas), than practitioners of the scientific method. I would like to see not only science, but also faith and politics, restored to their rightful places in American life.
On these blog pages, I will be focusing on politics, but will bring up faith and science from time to time, when they intersect with political issues. As the site develops, I will also add some elements of humor/satire. The views expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of those with whom or for whom I work.
The choices we make in life define who we are as individuals and as a nation.
