Welcome to Libby’s Letter. I’m Libby.
Libby, if you haven’t figured it out, is short for Liberty. I write with a pen name because I am a mom, a business owner, an American who doesn’t have time for an IRS audit.
I have a degree in journalism. I worked in media for over a decade. I now work in a creative field. I attend a very liberal church. And, I married a Northerner.
I don’t have many conservative friends.
Growing up in an accounting firm, I saw first hand how and from whom the government really takes the money that they “re-distribute.”
I am a conservative.
Before I understood the political spectrum in the United States, I would say I’m socially liberal and fiscally conservative. Today I consider myself Libertarian-ish. Constitutionalist might be a better fit. I live by: live and let live; unless you’re spewing mis-information, then you must die, or maybe just be exposed.
I do not believe that tolerance is a virtue. I believe that understanding is.
I can tolerate just about anything except a hypocrite. Freud might have something to say about that.
Though I have a degree in journalism, I was told by my professors that I was not a good writer. But, screw them. Here we go.
