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.
But the same judge reversed the order late on Monday, after LG underwent a psychological evaluation.
"Legally speaking, it's not a difficult decision to make. Morally speaking, it's very difficult," the judge said.
"But I'm not here to make the moral decision. I'm here to make the legal decisions," Judge Ronald Alvarez said, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper.
I withdraw my earlier comment that this was an abuse of judicial power. While it is possible that public outrage lead to this reversal, I prefer to give the judge the benefit of the doubt. I was under the impression that the previous ruling delaying the procedure until she underwent a psychological evaluation meant that for all practical purposes she would not be given permission to do a she wished. Quite often, judges and legislators impose hurdles to deny people a particular course of action and I mistakenly thought that was happening in this situation. (Example: It became legal to arm pilots, providing they received training and passed tests, even though such training and testing wasn't readily available for quite some time.) I may have jumped to the wrong conclusion in this case, as she promptly received an evaluation and was authorized to proceed with the abortion if that is still her intent.
