An expression of personal freedom designed to educate people about the meaning and importance of freedom and personal responsibility. Topics will include current events, historical analysis, gun control and firearms rights, education, politics and more. I write in support of freedom lest darkness fall upon our society in the form of dwindling rights, apathy and oppression.
I am a neolibertarian minded individual who feels that freedom and individual rights take precedence over the wants of government. I believe government exists to serve the people and not to protect us from ourselves. I am an advocate for private firearms ownership, smaller government, reduced taxes and freedom to live your life however you choose, providing you do not directly hurt others.

Books I Am Reading
A Feast For Crows This latest installment of Gearge R. R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series isn't quite as gripping as the previous books but is still a pretty good read.
Phantom Book 10 in the Sword of Truth series continues to keep the reader riveted while repeatedly emphasizing the duty and importance of self defense.
Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed A follow up to Guns, Germs, and Steel that explains the geographic, environmental and socio-economic reasons that can cause civilizations and communities to collapse.
There are plenty of reasons to wish a speedy demise for Castro so that poverty stricken Cuba can have a chance at freedom and prosperity. Here's one more reason to add to the list:
According the CNN article in the title link, Forbes listed Castro among the world's wealthiest heads of state, estimating his net worth at $550 million. Not that I mind people getting rich, but this guy is the leader of a nation that claims everything belongs to the people for the benefit of the people. The average Cuban salary is only about $12 per month!
Forbes said the $550 million net worth was based this in part on:
"comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies,"
Castro's government, in perfect socialist style, lashed out at this report:
It called Forbes "an American magazine of decaying credibility."
"The revenues of Cuban state-run companies are used exclusively for the benefit of the people, to whom they belong," the statement said.
The statement went on to say that Cuba is the only Latin American country that fights inequality and has the fairest income distribution in the world.
