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.

If you enjoy reading, you really must get one of these. I carry mine with me all of the time and read at least 5 books per month on it.
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.
The title link is to a story announcing a new and very interesting technology called RedTacton that has the ability to transmit data at speeds of up to 2Mbps via human skin! For those not familiar with data transfer speeds, 2Mbps is about the average speed of a home user's broadband cable or DSL internet connection.The idea behind this is that people carrying electronic devices such as PDAs, cameras, MP3 players, etc. could be exchanged with another device by simply touching it.
And since data can pass from one body to another, you could also exchange electronic business cards by shaking hands, trade music files by dancing cheek to cheek, or swap phone numbers just by kissing.
I think this is actually a really good idea. It is fairly easy and convenient to touch a device or person to trade data, and if the files are small the contact need only take place for a second or three. Current wireless methods such as blue tooth, broadcast data in a radius around the device, often up to 20+ feet away. Broadcasting data over the air means others could intercept it, yet data transferred through your skin means you must be in close contact with the person sending the data. Already people have developed ways to broadcast advertisements to wireless devices, send viruses, steal data, etc. In theory this wouldn't be possible with skin based transmission unless that spammer ran through a crowded room touching as many people as possible, which would at least give you a chance to punch the person sending you unwanted junk mail.
I am really looking forward to seeing this technology develop.
