I am a freelance grantwriter and unlicensed educator, I am something of a social crusader. I have been active both locally and nationally in various social, economic, and political causes since the late 1980s. And although I am convinced that America stands alone in the annals of world history as a bastion of personal opportunity and equality, it can be so much more, but only if we are willing to think beyond our often blind adherence to dogmatic political ideologies and see our collective needs based on pragmatism. I also blog on and provide commentary on various news items, socioeconomic, & political policies on my primary blog: http://beyond-the-political-spectrum.blogspot.com/ Also on Tumblr http://beyond-the-political-spectrum.tumblr.com/
