My name is Phil and I joined this forum to better understand and relate to more conservative viewpoints. I consider myself somewhat of a free-thinker gulp. Though the term has become somewhat synonymous with “hippiedom”, I consider “freethought” to actually be more about logic, which the word implies, than jumping on anything the far-left throws out there.
It seems logical to understand different perspectives as best as possible, instead of making assumptions about a large group based on the actions of one or two people.
Through interacting here on this forum, I hope to get a more realistic idea of what conservatism is about from real people instead of right and left campaign advertising.
Thanks for welcoming me and sharing your wisdom here on this forum.
