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.
Opening Monday and trumpeted proudly by city officials is the Midnight Mission - and one of the nation's plushest homeless shelters. The $17 million state-of-the-art facility boasts a full-sized gymnasium, library, playroom, hair salon, education center, and professional kitchen.
What a way to spend tax money! According to the article, the city has more than 6,000 homeless people. I wonder how many more homeless people they will have once word spreads about this facility. Don't get me wrong, I do pity those homeless people that are mentally ill and that were tossed out of institutions due to lack of funding. Unfortunately, a lot of the homeless are people who wholly or partially brought homelessness on themselves, such as by substance abuse, anti-social behavior, etc.
I find it hard to justify millions of dollars of public money for this. To me, this sounds like a case of the government confiscating money via taxes to fund a charity. Individuals should be free to make their own decisions on what causes they wish to donate money to. If a person wants to save the whales, help a battered women's shelter, fund a firearm safety program, aid the American Red Cross or selfishly spend all of their money on themselves, they should have that right. No government entity should be compelling people to support a specific charitable cause.
Charity is a great expression of generosity and is very admirable. This virtue, however, is lost when politicians take other people's money without their consent, and then bestow it upon others.
