My name is Ethan. I'm twenty years old, and I live in Western Pennsylvania. Though I'm more on the right than the left, I prefer to identify as a capitalist rather than a conservative, mainly because I don't share conservative views on many moral issues, and also because I don't see too many people courageous enough to identify as capitalists. I believe in the value of free speech and free exchange of ideas, which puts me at odds with more people than I would have expected. Perhaps most importantly, I believe that if what you believe is true, then you don't have to be vehement about it. I am skeptical about all ideas, but I'm open to being convinced that anything is true, as long as it can be proven with facts and reasoning, rather than with moral lectures about how evil the other side is. I look forward to talking to more people here.
