My real name is Stephanie Chapman. I am 42 years old, a mother of 4 children, a veteran of the United States Army, and have a degree in Veterinary Technology (no I am not a veterinarian). I am an avid book reader, I don't watch mainstream media because I feel it doesn't give a truly open view of what is reported. I am considered a conservative Republican but I am actually not in favor of either side. I approach issues and individuals with an open mind.
I am a Christian- I believe in God and feel that he has directly touched my life.
I defy all normal classifications in life- I have faced and seen things that many people will never endure. I think justice is not something I have ever experienced- I've been to jail for being poor while a man that strangled and shot at me only got probation with no jail time.

Question: I will always ask in a debate why? What information do you base your belief on? If you can support why you believe something opposite of me, I will be more than happy to consider that I am not right.
I do not call names, and will not allow someone to degenerate me. I give respect and if something offends me I will just not respond to it. And it will take a lot to really offend me.

Welcome, glad to see you actively posting on the threads.

BTW what are your typical sources of information, since you're not into the lamestream media?

I generally get information from DailyWire+, Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, and Dr. Jordan Peterson. If I am uncertain about anything when it comes to statistics, I know how to access government websites and legal sites that will take me to the law library. I don't argue points about anything I have no clue about but I will ask questions out of curiosity.

Sounds a little echo chambery.

I subscribe to (pay for) the Economist and the NYT Sundays, but I read online articles from evetything from the WSJ to networks to Forbes, Reuters, the London papers. However, once intrigued by stories written by journalists,I commonly look up the raw stats for myself from the source. Oh and John Oliver.
