..... Long term unemployed Mathematician / Electrical Engineer who writes a centrist blog.
..... By the way, that's real centrism, the independent kind, not the far left or far right variety.
..... Real centrists won't, for example, support or accept indefinite extrajudicial detention,
..... especially after they've offered a promise to abolish it if elected. Ahem.
..... But they might be almost as amused and they are annoyed by the way in which their
..... opposition keeps trying to pretend to be them. This profile will, itself, not be overtly political.
..... I'm here to put colors together, not write essays. However, given the history of the United
..... States over the last few decades, and the crude attempts on the parts of some to co-opt
..... the name of Centrism for their own purposes, there are some things from which I felt the
..... need to distance myself, such as the use of torture, the practice of stealing from the poor
..... to give to the rich, and the insistence that those who question such things ought to be
..... attacked for their lack of patriotism, especially should they have anything unflattering to
..... say about the last refuge of the scoundrels in their midst.
