It was after testimony he gave in which he helped educate a former member of Congress on economics.
A few years ago, I was watching Governor Mitt Romney shoot down the idea that Washington needs to spend in order to stimulate consumption, thus "boosting" the economy, as presented by a former Republican member of Congress. Governor Romney even cautioned against policies that could wreck the currency. I can remember thinking to myself even if I disagree with Romney on a lot of other things, in that one area he was sounding a bit like Ron Paul, and the good and perfect ought not be enemies of one another anyways.
I also believe Congressman Joe Heck is a good man. I even took heat from Sharron Angle for believing Heck is a good man. That Governor Romney would support Heck I believe is commendable. I would say my biggest beef with the Republican Party is everything that happened during the last election. It left me very confused. I was basically thrown overboard by Team Angle for not liking the way Sue was attacked. But then somehow I was bad for not supporting Angle during the general. I would defend Reid, while people nexused with some prominent Republicans would trash him, and somehow I was made to feel like I'm the really bad one. After so long, you start to give up to a certain extent.
But as we near election date 2012, I'm finally here - and I knew I would be here eventually, which is also I guess why at the time I wasn't as careful about holding myself back when I struggled to write the way I wanted to - where I can say I love both Governor Romney and President Obama. For a while, too, after the last election I would think to myself as long as I support President Obama, I'll be okay, taking for granted that people would understand me. So I wasn't as careful about some of my writing because of that, too. Hardcore libertarians for Obama! I can live with any outcome in 2012. I don't believe it's for me to take sides in political contests.
Mark served honorably for four years on active duty in the Marine Corps infantry, and was a Libertarian endorsed candidate for a municipal office in 2002. He re-enlisted in the ARNG in 2006 because he was depressed/at times SI without the military. He has held the NFA Series 3 license (futures and futures options broker) which he did a voluntary withdrawal on because he couldn't in good conscience sell managed futures since firms would do better to hire an in-house trader to trade a proprietary account with a discount broker, which he outlined in his well-written withdrawal request. Since the year 2000, he has spent much of his free time reading the great minds of the Austrian School of economics, such as Murray Rothbard, Henry Hazlitt, Ludwig von Mises, et al.
