Glad to be here on the forums and finally joined Patreon. I'm a careful guy with OpSec always on my mind. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool paranoid type, so please don't take offense if I play my cards where you can't see 'em. However, my introduction post will be a bit long winded.
Thank you Bear and Mrs Bear for everything you do. Thank you Bear Nation for making this an awesome community.
Those who chat on the YT/Intel Report Live Stream probably know my stance on religion. I have recently begun the path of Native Spirituality, I am exploring Odinism and honoring my ancestors and their gods. It is something I've felt a pull to do most of my life, but only recently have I started this journey.
I espoused an agnostic, anti-religion view because I have seen much harm brought about by organized, main stream "Christians" (note the air quotes.) I do not begrudge anyone their individual beliefs, even if I might speak up about it now and again. I will die to defend your rights to practice as you see fit, so long as you bring no harm unto others in doing so; after all, I am a Constitutionalist.
I am a military brat, and my step-father (recently deceased as some know) was a Viet Nam veteran. I was unable to Serve due to a childhood injury. I shattered the bones of a limb which disqualified me from Service. I tried every which way to enlist, and was eventually told to cease by a Recruiter. I am a die-hard supporter of our Veterans and have family that is active duty. You may hear me speak out against Command and how they've sold out, but please know if you're here, I have your back as best as I can.
Me and mine have been of the prepardeness mindset for decades. Sadly, most of my extended family refused to see the wisdom and benefits - at least until 2020.
On the political spectrum - I am an Isolationist Nationalist. I put this here because it frames most of my thinking. I could not care less about the rest of the world, we have our own problems to get fixed first. I am not a Democrat, nor a Republic. I am a libertarian leaning constitutionalist who recognizes the entire political system is broken.
Love and respect,
