Freedom of Thought

Growing up with my parents in New Jersey taught me one important lesson. Freedom of thought: the ability to think for yourself, to not automatically accept what you hear, but to question everything until you reach the truth.

I listen to the same news as everyone else in the Texas Panhandle (where I live), but I see things differently than most of my surrounding neighbors and co-workers. I also think about things like where did we come from, what is the universe and the nature of the self. Politically speaking in these parts of the world people tend to be right-wing leaning. I don’t think of myself as a “liberal” or a “democrat.” I think of myself as someone who can think for himself, even if that leads me to vote for Democrats.
