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.
A retired member of the U.S. military aged about 70 put suspect Warner Segura in a head lock and broke his clavicle after the 20-year-old and two other men armed with a knife and gun held up their tour bus, Luis Hernandez, the police chief of Limon, 80 miles east of San Jose, said Thursday. Segura was later declared dead, apparently from asphyxiation.
The two other men fled when the 12 senior citizens started defending themselves during the Wednesday attack.
More proof that a good defense can work. I bet that these criminals never expected to face resistance from a group of aging tourists. By fighting back, these brave tourists accomplished all of the following:
Seized control of the situation and put momentum and surprise in their favor
Took away the muggers ability to harm them (the muggers might have decided to hurt a few of the tourists in the process of robbing them had the tourists meekly complied)
Sent a message to criminals everywhere that crime can be a hazardous and undesirable occupation
Sent a message to criminals and good folks alike that seniors are not necessarily easy prey
Removed one thug from the gene pool and presumably saved a number of other people from future victimization.
