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.
A bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives this week would designate English as the country's official language and require immigrants to learn English before becoming naturalized citizens.
This is good news! We are a nation, and to exist as a united and functional society we must all be able to communicate with each other. If someone screams "Help!", "Fire!" or "Rape!", everyone in earshot should be able to understand and respond accordingly. If a police officer yells "Freeze!" or "Drop your weapon!" or "Put your hands up!", the person hearing this command should know how to react in order to avoid being shot. If a citizen is selected for jury duty, they should be capable of doing their civic duty, hearing out the case, understanding it fully and then rendering a verdict.
I would take the bill one step further and require people to demonstrate considerable English proficiency before granting them permanent residency/green cards. Permanent residents are by definition people who have the right to spend the rest of their lives here. They will be subject to numerous laws written in English, and will most likely have to work in an English dominant society. Workers should be able to understand customer complaints, requests from colleagues, tax laws, employment laws, etc. Drivers should be able to read traffic signs, parking restrictions, maps and more. How can they do any of this if they don't speak the common language of the land?
My belief that Americans should be able to speak and understand English is not racist. I don't care if the person applying for a green card or citizenship is a blond blue-eyed European, an Asian, Hispanic, Black or whatever. They shouldn't be granted the privilege of permanent residency or citizenship until they can speak our common language well enough to understand and be understood by others.
