Gender MALE
Industry Law Enforcement or Security
Occupation Deputy Sheriff/EMT
Location Bledsoe County (Chattanooga Area), Tennessee, United States
Introduction I'm a former U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran. Now, I work as a Deputy Sheriff. I have an Associate's in Criminal Justice, and I'm working on a Bachelor's in Theology/Psychology. I'm a fiscally conservative Democrat, turned pro-life, Big "L" libertarian. As of 2/16/16, I'm the former Bledsoe Co, TN District 3 Commissioner (and I've never been happier now that I'm out of the game). I'm a member and/or supporter of the Libertarian Party, Campaign For Liberty, PERC, the Acton Institute, Wild Cat Unionism, the VFW, the National Association for Gun Rights, the Cato Institute, The Carter Center, The Bush Center Human Freedom Initiative, Gary Johnson's Our America Initiative, I'm a strong supporter of the Constitution, especially the 1st and 2nd Amendments. I believe in a strong, but constitutionally defined, national defense and foreign policy. I consider myself socially progressive but, at the federal level, fiscally conservative. I believe that progressiveness works best at the state and local levels. It is time to throw parties aside, and start looking at individual candidates and their stances on the issues.
Interests Episcopalian/Anglican-Catholic, Progressive Christianity, GARY JOHNSON FOR PRESIDENT, the Progressive Libertarian Movement, Reading, Writing, MMA, Scuba Diving, Running(it's a love/hate relationship...hahaha!), American Football (Go Bears baby!!!), BJJ, Rugby...pretty much living life!
