View Full Version : Hello from Oklahoma (sometimes Alaska)

Hello, I go by the screen name "Orthodox Presbyterian", in reference to the first Reformed Church in which I held communicant membership; although my wife and I are presently members of our local Southern Presbyterian church (PCA). But just plain "OP" is fine, too.

I'd consider myself an amateur enthusiast for Calvinist Theology (particularly Political Theonomy), Austrian Economics, History (particularly church and military), strategy wargames for recreation, and the Paul political family. Though I like a lot of Sarah Palin's views, also.

Mrs. OrthodoxPresbyterian is half Mexican, about a quarter Jewish (mainly Sephardic and Mizrahi, by way of her Hispanic heritage), enjoys joining me for the occasional wargame, and is a big fan of Sarah Palin. Though she likes a lot of the Pauls' views, also.

OrthodoxPresbyterian,Junior is... well, he's a baptized Presbyterian. At all of 3 months old, that's about all we can say about him for sure, yet.

I've previously served locally as a Republican Precinct Chairman, but I'm not always a straight-ticket Republican; I have voted Libertarian for President, as a good-faith protest vote, when they've run a Pro-Life candidate (Anti-Abortion is a litmus test issue for me, though). Other than that, though, I've probably voted Republican for the down-ballot races about 95% of the time... may have voted Constitution Party for one race, but I'm usually pretty solidly Republican -- albeit, sometimes, only for lack of better alternatives.

I live in Oklahoma and have actually only been to Alaska twice; once, years ago, when I worked on the salmon and crab fishing boats for about 6 months over the summer, and a couple years ago when I took Mrs. OP on honeymoon in Alaska. Nonetheless, we hope to visit The Great White North from time to time in the years ahead, and both have an especial fondness for Alaska. That is, once a decade-or-so whenever we can get up there to visit.

Best, OP

Hey, OP, and welcome.

Call me Trucker. I am not much like you, lacking, as I do, any sort of pedigree that would expose the existence of roots any longer than one half of one generation.
I am a American mongrel. Little of this; little of that. Who knows? But here I am, and that's the most important point to me.

Look forward to your input and comments.:)

Welcome to CU OP and I hope you enjoy your time here!

We've had some bad experiences with Ron Paul supporters in the past which is why we are a tad wary of them and why I will NOT put up with another RonBot invasion.

Supporting Paul is fine but a repeat of what happened last time will NOT be allowed.

But enjoy yourself and welcome again to CU.

Welcome Presby, great to have another Okie on the board!:D
I'm a Calvinist too, it was bound to happen.

Welcome OP, nice to meet you.

Isn't that a critical element of being American.
You're a product of the 'melting pot'.
Be proud of that always. :cool:

What did the Calvinist say after falling down three flights of stairs?

Well, I'm certainly glad to get THAT out of the way!

I like the Pauls a lot (and while I think Ron is terrific, I'm starting to like Rand even better), but I'll try to ration myself to posting at least one "Non-Ron" article for each "Pro-Ron" article I post. Admittedly, my posts will probably tend to run in a predictable rut of Guns, Capitalism, and Christian Theology articles; but, I suppose those topics will interest at least a few of my fellow Conservatives, and at least that will give me something to talk about besides Ron Paul.
