I'm a free-spirited, constitution-loving, first amendment exercising, second amendment enforcing, US Army Veteran. I'm a logic engine. I think, dream, and talk code. I am known to have a programming problem when I go to sleep and wake up at 2:00am, run to the computer, and fix that problem because I dreamed of a solution - completely serious. When someone enters a debate with me, they had better be prepared because I do not tolerate fallacies and rarely am I caught basing my arguments on one.
I'm a happily married man with four teenagers, two young men, and two young ladies. I was married to my only wife in 2001 while in the United States Army.
As a teenager growing up, my first job was at my uncle's hog farm in Duplin County, North Carolina. I learned the value of hard labor and the value of the American Dollar. It was a valuable life lesson but not my a line of work to my tastes. I then tried retail and finally settled in before I graduated working for DuplinNet as the night tech support manager. I feel in love with computers and realized my career.
Right after graduation I entered the United States Army and selected my MOS 74G. I was then Stationed in Stuttgart, Germany where my unit would be deployed two times to Afghanistan (after 9-11) before I would sustain an injury and have to return home.
After my honorable discharge from the United States Army, I began work with several companies. Inttek, FR&T, and even ExeCom Computers before realizing I had changed and had become intolerant to civilian chaos.
I started my own tech company focused on hiring veterans so that if any were like me, and felt civilian life as sandpaper on an eyeball, they would have a place to call home.
I'm a Christian, but not the common variety. I haven't attended church in over five years and I still consider myself to be a devout Christian. "When you gather in my name, I am there" is what the Bible teaches us. The modern concept of a "Church" or "Congregation" wasn't established until the council of Nicea. Insodoing, I also reject much of the texts that were injected into the Holy Bible during this politically charged time in history including texts that exclude women from being involved and running a Church.
I am a far-right conservative and constitutionalist. I can recite the entire Constitution, even backward, and every Article and Amendment. I'm not a conservative because of what I believe, I'm a conservative because of what I know. For instance: I know that our founding fathers were terrified of a strong, central government, because the first Constitution ratified by the United States, called, "The Articles of Confederation" specifically says so in the preamble. I also know that the idea of "a living and breathing document" was created by the political motivators of the United States that desires a bigger and stronger government. And I also know that Article V in our current Constitution was written for the specific purpose of reigning in an out-of-control strong central government.
With that said, I know that our founding fathers, NEVER INTENDED for our constitution to be "a living and breathing document". Instead, they meant it as-is.
My politics are guided by two famous quotes.
When a people fears a government, there is tyranny. When a government fears a people, there is liberty.
-- Benjamin Franklyn
They who sacrifice one ounce of freedom for one pound of security, deserve and get neither
-- George Washington
