Bringing rationality to politics

Thanks for stopping by the Moderate Progressive blog! Let me take a few minutes to introduce you to myself, the site, and why I started this blog.

My goal for this blog is simple: cut through the clutter, hype, and disinformation from both sides to uncover the data-driven reality of current events and political issues. I am an engineer by training, so data analysis is kind of my thing. I also absolutely loathe hypocrisy, and will do my best to uncover where politicians are shifting their previous positions to take the convenient stance.

As I mentioned, I am an engineer by training, and have a strong background in data analysis. More than that, I actually kind of enjoy it. I know this makes me strange, and I may tend to be a little wonky, but I will always go to great lengths to make sure the information I post is as accurate and complete as possible.

So how does an engineer get into politics? My mom is a former journalist, so current events have always been a central theme to my life. And politics have always fascinated me, as I have tried to understand why people tend to focus on certain data, and disregard other data. I will try to identify what the conflicting data are actually saying and present that information.

At last, what the heck is a moderate progressive? I initially wanted to take the moniker of rational progressive, but turns out that’s actually a political party. Who knew? So rather than getting confused with that, I took on the moderate progressive. I did so because while I am mostly moderate, I tend to lean slightly left (according to the US spectrum). You can find more details on my positions here, and I will be writing plenty of posts explaining and supporting my positions as I progress through this wild and wonderful world of blogging.
