    Greetings all!

    I am neither Republican nor Democrat but I am generally conservative. I find myself leaning more towards Republican ideals but only because democratic liberalism has taken a sharp turn to the left in recent years which leaves us moderates looking rather "right'ish".

    As you get more acquainted with my positions you will realize that I am not interested in quoting others opinions to justify my own. I simply take the facts as they are presented and verify them to the best of my abilities. After applying a healthy dose of common sense, I am usually quite comfortable defending my positions and will do so with vigor.

    However, I am not always correct and will be the first to admit my errors. Learning is growth and I find no shame in growing through my mistakes.

    I look forward to many spirited debates here at House of Politics and would like to take this opportunity to thank all who will take part in them.

    -Castle

    Welcome Castle. Just curious, but does your name come from the Punisher comics? Your avatar looks really familiar.

    Correct.
    I share his name and occasionally his solutions...... ;) Well, in theory anyhow.
    Glad you caught that Dave. Most don't make the connection.

    I was thinking it but I didn't want to sound too much like the comic book nerd that I am.

    Oh dear...right now I'd have to say that the X-Men books are my favorites. I like Deadpool a lot too. I liked Teen Titans during the initial volume three run when Geoff Johns was writing but it's gone way, way downhill since Infinite Crisis.

    I read Civil War and was deeply upset most of the way through - the actual "Civil War" books weren't that heavy but the adjunct books were, especially Frontline. That **** was messed up.

    I follow authors as much as I follow titles...in particular Peter David, Brian Michael Bendis, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Fabian Nicieza, Frank Miller and J. Michael Straczynski.

    In conclusion...yes, I'm a huge comic book nerd.
