Some talking head on CNBC, when referring to Ron Paul, called him a “mosquito.” My reaction – if he is a “mosquito”, he is a pretty powerful one. Hence the name.  More about me, with contact information, here:

I am a seminary student at the Sangre de Cristo Seminary – a reformed seminary in Colorado. I previously studied Engineering at the University of Michigan and got an MBA at Wake Forest University. I’ve learned far more from books than in school. I’m particularly in debt to Martin Luther, Ludwig von Mises, and Gordon H. Clark for any thoughts I have.

Mitchell Thompson —> all blogposts

I was born and raised in Northern California where I was homeschooled.  I became a Protestant (Calvinistic) seven years ago. I was also, starting in 2006, a Buchananite conservative until I met Ron Paul during the 2008 elections.  From then on I read everything I could from the Mises Institute and am now satisfied as a Rothbardian libertarian.  I am slowly becoming a more confessional Reformed Baptist. Hoping to get more and more involved on this site. My Twitter handle is @MitchRThompson. I also think I’m witty, but I prolly ain’t. Cheers.
