Tropers / Jorit

The basics: 25 years of age male resident of Olympia, Washington. Currently pursuing a masters degree in public administration at The Evergreen State College. Fond of lurking on the On-Topic Conversations and Video Games forums here while posting infrequently, when posting often doing so in walls'o'text. I prefer Hamiltonian forms of government (tending towards the authoritarian, good of the state vs. good of the individual), to Jeffersonian (small government). I also work for the federal government (National Marine Fisheries Service), and tend to approach problems from the perspective of the federal level.

I enjoy debate and discussion of a variety of topics, the more challenging the better as those are often the questions we really need to (hopefully) answer, so feel free to PM or argue with me on the forum, I consider it a learning opportunity if nothing else!
