I am an 20 year old conservative, which these days seems like an oxymoron. I attend a liberal arts college that specializes in music. My musical preferences are in the heavy, dark, complex music that comes with Dream Theater, Tool, Iron Maiden, Symphony X, Lamb of God, among others. But I also listen to Rush, Kansas, Queensryche, Queen, Primus, Led Zeppelin, and Alice in Chains. I’m a drummer, so my mind, given the complex music I listen to is represented by the music I listen to and my thought processes are just as if not more complex than most everything I do. I’m outspoken, but very opinionated. I will not let my voice go unheard, but I’m tolerant of other people’s views, even if they aren’t of mine, because this is America, and someone has to do something right.
“Is the power who is jealous of our prosperity, a proper power to govern us? Whoever says No to this is an independent…” –Thomas Paine, Common Sense
