I'm a realist, which means that if there is absolutely no positives in a situation, I won't sit back and say 'oh, it's gonna be alright. Things sort themselves out.' Generally, though, I always try to look on the bright side of life. You could say I'm a cynical optimist.

Extremely cynical.

I don't see how a rational mind can be anything but.

Rational minds generally don't hate one particular group of people, such as NT's.

I'm cynical and optimistic at the same time.

It would take a long time to explain. No one would read a post that long.

I'm cynical but not to the point of believing conspiracy nonsense that a lot of doom and gloom cynics seem to indulge in.

9/11 wasn't an inside job and I don't believe in the New World Order / secret society conspiracies. I don't believe the US government is turning into a "Big Brother" though I think the wire taps were a very bad idea and the US does have a pretty f'd up foreign policy record. Also, global warming isn't good but I don't think it threatens the existence of either the human race or the earth.
