So a little about myself and my thoughts before I get posting real issues. My area of study has been international relations with an emphasis on the Middle East, so I'm quite knowledgeable about the affairs of the world, but could use work on domestic issues. My biggest concern is being able to create a better society. Within the framework of my political thought, this means being able to formulate a government that serves the interests of the people by taking care of those in need, letting people achieve their potential, and not infringing upon their rights or choices. It means getting society to look at issues in new ways and from there we can achieve begin to move forward.
With this in mind, I will be posting not only an analysis of problems, but probably my own thoughts on a subject. In addition, I will include articles by other people that I will either critique or praise in order to help get somewhere with this blog. Oh and of course, I will be posting political comics and such. I've always found it entertaining that people that poke fun at the problems with our system are often more correct than the rhetoric that politicians engage in. Rather than keeping a veil over our eyes, comics seem to throw the issues right in your face; sure its in a comical manner, but its important to remain detached and keep a positive outlook on things.
