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.

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.

Book 10 in the Sword of Truth series continues to keep the reader riveted while repeatedly emphasizing the duty and importance of self defense.

Jon Stewart on Ted Stevens and the Internet

The title link is to a clip on of Jon Stewart mocking Ted Stevens and government ignorance of the internet. I thought it would be a fun way to wrap up this series on government and technology. (I found the link for this file on the IPAC blog, a non-partisan organization dedicated to preserving information freedom through balanced information policy.)

The reason I wrote this series is that I believe we tech-savvy people have a duty to help protect our nation from ignorant politicians. We know how important technology is, and what a huge impact it can have on our lives. It is vital that we research the people that we vote for and make sure we aren't electing people who think of the telegraph as a new-fangled hi-tech device. If someone is running for office, we can’t afford to just vote for them because they've held that office since before we were born. If a representative makes an ass out of himself while giving a speech about technology (ex: Ted Stevens), write him a scathing letter and then vote him out of office (don't send email as he probably won't know how to use it). We can also help defend against technology-ignorant politicians by discussing major technological issues with other voters. Remember that people who don’t know much about technology are less likely to get their news online, so a conversation might be the only way they learn about important technology issues.
