Sometimes I feel like the lone liberal surrounded by conservatives. I know that in Northern Virginia, that's not entirely the case, but it sure seems like most people here just don't understand my views.
I'm a liberal because I am a human and I believe that we're all in this together, and we, as a civilization, will be stronger when we work to support those who cannot support themselves, and allow all people to make the appropriate decisions regarding their own lives and fates. Selfishness, arrogance, and isolationism have no place in this world, and, left unchecked, will have catastrophic results.
Socio-political beliefs aside, I spend my days as a software developer, and spend most of the rest of my time doing something involving music, either playing it myself or going out to concerts. There's more to me than that, but it sure won't fit in this box,
