I’m Oliver Willis and since 2000, OliverWillis.com has provided opinions, analysis, rants and humor about politics, pop culture and anything that crosses my mind.
I was born on December 6, 1977 in Silver Spring, MD.
I consider myself an FDR-style Democrat: Strong on national security, progressive on domestic policy.
I voted for Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama (twice!), and Hillary Clinton for President.
I wrote a political satire book called The Deepest State. You should buy it.
What I write here is my own opinion.
I live in Winter Park, FL. I am originally from Silver Spring, MD. I have lived in Maryland, Jamaica, Florida (Lauderdale Lakes, Boca Raton), California (Los Angeles), and Massachusetts (Boston).
