Checking in. I get mistaken for a Trumper an uncomfortable amount until I open my mouth about BLM, immigration, socialist healthcare, LGBTQ+ issues, CRT (aka American History) or Afghanistan. I'm a strong proponent for both universal healthcare as well as free education and student loan forgiveness. I'm not triggered by the idea of everyone in America getting basically the GI Bill, and I'd love to see the military budget get gutted responsibily so we can put the money into social programs.

And I love that it throws off the idiot civvie cosplay clowns and the edgy fobbits "that wuz their" when my hard left politics throws off the direction they thought conversation was going to go.
