Back Story : I created Acton as a Black Bear because real life friends accused me of showing bear like tendencies. Acton name was created by combining philosophers and thinkers that have real life impact in my life: Lord Acton, Ayn Rand, and Francis Shafer. In Acton’s furry world, Black Bears are a minority and consider Liberal Democrats but Acton befuddled his parents and friends when he became a Conservative Republican after serving in the military. Acton works as a Conservative activist and Conservative talk show host. The later by accident when the host who was interviewing Acton had an on air mental breakdown and held the station hostage until arrested.
