I stand at one of those political junction points which is not easy to define. It is a position that is driven less by ideology but more about a critical examination of the facts. In a sense I am a rejectionist from both the traditional right and left as I refuse to adhere to a dogma of inflexibility. To many, that I debate, my position is frustrating as it eschews pigeon holing. Just as they have me pegged as a right-winger I provide a multitude of distinctions that separate me from both the conservative and libertarian strata - the two worldviews that appear to define modern rightism. Similarly when chiseled into a leftist framework I stand out like a Cezanne in a Picasso collection.
