(IRL/OOC)The obligatory political pros and cons (plus personality info for those of you who are incredibly curious)If something is in italics, it means I feel strongly about it.
If I have offended you with my views, that's fine. We all have opinions.
To summarize my views, I am a paleo-conservative or right-wing populist in that I am anti-illegal immigration, anti-interventionism, anti-SJW, anti-globalism, anti-corruption, somewhat socially conservative, and a supporter of the free market. I disagree with some of Trump's views, but I believe his vision for this country is leagues better than Clinton's. I am a firm believer in free speech and am strongly opposed to SJWs and political correctness. As for religion, I am somewhere between a deist and an agnostic. Oh, and I'm a Republican. Shocking, I know, but the Democratic Party is thoroughly corrupted by edgy socialists and SJWs.
I update this list from time to time.
Pros: Donald Trump/Trumpism, secularism, religious freedom, green energy sources (I'm not a "tree hugger", but that oil is going to run out sometime, folks), limited physical child discipline, LGB rights, Israel, gender equality, racial equality, profanity, total decriminalization of narcotics (not for personal "reasons", mind you, but for the immense tax revenue and potential to help get aid for addicts), free speech, low corporation taxes, lower income taxes, reformed sex ed, education reform to make more practical courses like economics and foreign language absolutely required after elementary/middle school, extreme cuts to money being used for welfare/unemployment benefits (plus a reform that would prevent current drug addicts/criminals from ever receiving either of these), term limits on Congress, protectionism/bringing American jobs back home, building the wall, Carson for a cabinet post, Gingrich for VP (such a shame he wasn't picked).
[color=red] Cons: American imperialism, state religion/theocracies, both North and South Korea (in their current states), fascism (in most cases), globalism, the extremely high divorce rate (more of a comment on the state of society than a political view, but eh, I believe that people are way too divorce-happy these days, and it causes costly court cases and tragedy for the children), claiming that violence in the media is making us more violent, feminists, unrestricted capitalism, the UN, Islamism, Palestine and Kosovo, censorship, Erdogan's Turkey, casual sex, al-Saud dynasty/American alliance with Saudi Arabia/Wahhabism, most gun control, Black Lives Matter and similar extremists, affirmative action, Syrian "refugees", Soviet Union, "People's Republic" of China , abortion, claiming that there are more than two genders, otherkin, Tumblr, Obama, Clinton, illegal immigration.[/i]
Sixteen personalities test results: INTJ-T "Architect"
This is what the test had to say about me: "It’s lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types, INTJs know this all too well. INTJs form just two percent of the population, and women of this personality type are especially rare, forming just 0.8% of the population – it is often a challenge for them to find like-minded individuals who are able to keep up with their relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. People with the INTJ personality type are imaginative yet decisive, ambitious yet private, amazingly curious, but they do not squander their energy."
Four humors temperament test results: Melancholic
This is what the test had to say about me: "Your temperament is melancholic. The melancholic temperament is fundamentally introverted and thoughtful. Melancholic people often were perceived as very (or overly) pondering and considerate, getting rather worried when they could not be on time for events. Melancholics can be highly creative in activities such as poetry and art - and can become preoccupied with the tragedy and cruelty in the world. Often they are perfectionists. They are self-reliant and independent; one negative part of being a melancholic is that they can get so involved in what they are doing they forget to think of others."

Also, according to some random internet test, if I was a D&D character, I'd be of the "neutral evil" alignment. Alrighty then...
RIP Jeb!. You (and your turtles) had a good run.
