    TheGirlNextDoor AKA TGND

    I'm a former member of the GOP and now identify myself as a Libertarian. No political party defines me completely, as I would suspect that is the case for most people. I've been a member and moderator at several different political sites. Debate Politics is my favorite, even though I have a ton of people from other sites with same AND differing political views whom I respect a ton, and have maintained contact with quite a few.

    I'm a mother of two teenagers. My son and daughter are both in high school and are very active. My son is adopted and struggles with ADHD and fetal alcohol syndrome. He's a good kid and is very dedicated to baseball and JROTC. My daughter had major surgery in January, 2012 and is stronger than a lot of adults I know. She's an honor roll student and active in girls softball, JROTC and HS marching band. I love them both very much.

    I am also a Residential Program Manager for a couple of group homes for adults with developmental disabilities. It's an extremely stressful, tiring and frustrating job - but it's hands down the most rewarding job I've ever had. My goal for the people I serve is to have them seen for their ABILITY instead of their DISABILITY.

    I am a native Kansan and I root for K-State - NOT KU!

    I'm fair minded but not a pushover. I firmly believe in treating others the way you would want to be treated. I make a habit of being direct and to the point. I don't dance around an issue when I have something to say. I can be aggressive at times, but I don't believe aggressiveness is a bad thing in certain situations.

    I love to talk to different people, so PM me if you'd like to chat.

    Peace.

    *Update* I have now re-joined the Republican party. My hope is that more people like myself, will come back to the GOP to help reform the party to what it once was. I guess you could say I am a RINO.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
