Hello, DU. I am a libertarian. [View all]

I'm not here to troll or disrespect anyone, or to otherwise cause mayhem. Hoenstly, I just want to learn from/about you, and maybe even make some more friends along the way. In my short time here, I've noticed we have much in common, including (but not limited to) stances on:

-ending the War on Drugs
-ending costly foreign wars
-addressing the epidemic of police brutality
-preventing NSA and other unconstitutional surveillance
-stopping/preventing crony capitalism
-overall disgust with the Republican party

Even as a self-proclaimed libertarian, I do find myself supporting Democrats from time to time. Dennis Kucinich is probably my favorite Democrat ever; his foreign policy views are common-sense, and we need more people like him. Cory Booker is another Democrat who I greatly respect due to his drug sentencing reform efforts. These are the sensible, across-the-isle types who give me hope for America.

I hope you will find that I'm not just another selfish, naive ideologue. I'm just a guy who wants to learn more about other points of view. Despite our differences, I will show nothing but respect to you all, and I look forward to future dialogue with you.
