About Me

“Dynamic” is a fair start…

dynamic

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio before moving to Silicon Valley in 2011 and The Bronx in 2013, where I remain today. (Update, July 2016: Moved to Minnesota for work. Will be here for around 3 years. Hope to move back to Cleveland after.)

I’m a conservatarian introvert who for 38 years has navigated life like an extrovert while quietly compelled by near-constant observation and thought. The time came as encouraged by those I trust most, foremost my wonderful wife, to start writing about some of it.

Having watched my legally blind-since-birth mom raise 5 kids without letting us get a handicap pass for the family car let alone cutting any other corners en route to becoming the “productive members of society” she demanded of us, I became inspired by the merit of individual liberty as exemplified in her shining, no excuses example.

Having watched others many years my elder mercilessly mock my apolitical mom and dad’s incidentally conservative values, I became aware at a very young age of the left’s capacity for artful, hurtful and ultimately misguided attacks — and well-armed to defend against them.

In the beginning I hated bullies more than I loved politics, but eventually began to see the symbiosis that often exists between them.

My political and social inspiration exists primarily today, in order, as follows…

  1. Advancing liberty and its inherent ‘moral good’
  2. Mitigating the racial and identity-based division and disparity that create so much destruction across the US
  3. Combating Democrats and the institutional left that impede #1 while perpetuating #2

If you disagree with the ideas you find here, then by all means challenge me back. I’d look forward to it. Just remember: Nothing precludes progress more than intellectual dishonesty, so please stay above that fray if you want to engage with me. I do so with near-militant vigilance.

All that remains is to get started, and a good place to do that might be the first-ever-written post, aptly named Love Breeds Accountability.

And for all of you establishment GOP grifters (consultants, advisers, so-called “strategists”), my second-ever-written post is just for you: Conservatives: We Are Our Own Worst Enemy.

Later!

  1. I want to know where you have had your “Love breeds accountability” published. You have done a fantastic job of showing the correlation of “victim mentality” to “becoming a victim”. Though I’m afraid that many with less education are not going to understand one of the major areas…. When you begin showing that identify of “self” becomes secondary to identity with the “victimized group”, some may erroneously think that you are CONFIRMING their plight rather than just stating the steps that such thinking will carry you down to the single-parent home & anger/victimization. I hope I have been somewhat clear in what I just said! lol I loved the article and believe it should receive a lot more attention! Good job!

    • Thanks very much for your positive feedback. I write everything here at LoveBreedsAccountability.com. Some others re-post my pieces on their own sites, but it hasn’t been formally ‘published’ anywhere besides right here where it originates. I started on 9/7/15 with a post called – wait for it – “Love Breeds Accountability” haha. Less than 3 months later there are close to 90 posts. Some are much better than others, but in each is some heavy thinking that I truly believe can help our nation progress and unite if only our more amplified voices on the right (GOP, conservative media, non-profits, etc) would spend less time elevating themselves and each other…and more time considering ideas that come from beyond their insiders-only clique. I will never advertise here and am not interested in making a living doing this. I simply want these fresh ideas to get visibility because I believe they can truly make a positive difference in many individuals’ lives and for our nation in general. And yes, your concern/critique made sense! My stuff is very cerebral and I know many who have the victim mentality will misconstrue my ideas as validation of their own. But it’s their “leaders” I really want to challenge, and push back on…so that they are exposed as frauds, misinformed and/or both. And if I can inspire or inform a few leftists in the grassroots along the way, I’ll take it. But again, my stuff is pretty heavy/cerebral and I also think that’s a big reason it doesn’t register with many on “my side” of the aisle; the right. As noted in one of my posts, I’m here less to preach to already-faithful conservative choirs — and more to challenge the establishment left who oppose us, while hopefully engaging and educating the recreationally-engaged left who don’t know us. Onward! Take care.
