David X Johnson
My wife, Andrea, and I have lived in Long Valley for 12 years. We've been happily married 28 years.
I'm a software engineer by trade, although my training is business, finance and economics. I've been employed in the manufacturing, fashion, Wall Street and mobile computing industries.
I'm a libertarian by philosophy, Republican by party. I try to influence the party and its members for the better. I can't say there has been much success there, and mistakes have been made along the way, but one must try nevertheless.
I'm a political philosophy junkie and have read many of the classics from Locke, Rawls, Hobbes, Hume, Mill, Marx, Hayek, Rothbard and Nozick (to name a few), although I'm drawn most to Locke and Nozick.
I'm not particularly religious, but comfortable with those who are (as long as they don't push it on me). I have a healthy skepticism toward organized religion or anyone who claims to have the answers on spiritual matters. How each man approaches his maker is personal and not entirely applicable to another.
Live and let live.
