It is with considerable enthusiasm that I introduce myself to the community of Beyond the GOP.com as both a reader and fellow traveler in the defense of a better conservatism, a more humane economy, greater liberty, stronger local and state government, fidelity to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution, and of the pursuit of truth. All that you need to know about me is that I am first and foremost a Christian with an ecumenical background, a father, an academic with considerable exposure to the fields of literary theory, political philosophy, theology, environmental thought, and history, and that I am an American.
