The purpose of this site is to promote critical thinking about some of the issues I find most important these days. Although the title of this site is "Casey's" critical thinking, I am in no way implying that my thoughts are the last word on a subject. The visitor will find short essays on various topics, which are merely the result of my personal study. Conservatives and liberals alike should find the content useful for one purpose or another (toilet paper comes to mind). The best way to form your own opinion is to examine both sides of an issue for yourself, and I encourage everyone to do so.
