I guess first and foremost, I should give you nice folks a little background into who I am so that my outlook on this subject makes a little more sense. I’m in my mid 30’s (shh…don’t tell anyone). I live in rural Southeast New Mexico, am partnered on a farm and ranch with my father, just started my own welding business, and also work full time at a local peanut mill. I have worked a huge variety of different jobs; I served in the Coast Guard, was an electrician in the oil fields, all the way to being a Sheriff’s Deputy, to a Sergeant at the local Detention Center. Needless to say, I have been accused more than a few times of being a “man’s man.” I love to hunt, fish, ride motorcycles, play guitar, drink a beer, and grill a steak. Do I sound like Tim Allen on Last Man Standing yet? Oh and yes, my political views tend to lean more on the conservative side.
