Retired banker, once worked as a correctional counselor with felons. Spent 12 years in Army Reserve during Vietnam era. Have been around guns all my life and am a strong Second Amendment supporter. Proud to have raised three conservative children. Experience with felons has left me very biased against correctional system, government programs which encourage development of future felons. Having seen banking from the inside, believe that banks are victims of government policies. Strong believer in capitalism and have helped many entrepreneurs to succeed. Believe that current government regulations and taxes are impeding growth by keeping individuals from going into business. Think minimum wage is a bad idea and that it hurts more than helps the general economy. Have lost faith in Congress, especially Republicans, to do the right thing. Believe that influence of social media is a bad thing as evidenced by flash mobs and addictive personalities. Think our current education system is a dismal failure. Enjoy reading, especially history. Married to a good Christian woman who keeps me sane by reminding me that God is in control and to be thankful for what you have, not to be envious for what you don’t have.
