My background is in the military and background investigations. I must disclose that all views, statements, and opinions I express on this website or anywhere else are my own, and they do not reflect any representation of the Government (Federal or Local), Department of Defense, or any military branch of service. Good, now that that is out of the way, I can tell you our country has problems. As you and I have obviously been aware of unless you have been living in North Korea for the past 10 years, in which case I am deeply sorry for your loss, our great country is in shambles. Many opinions on the culpability of how we got here can be debated, however the fact remains here we are.
Thomas Sowell states so bluntly, "[We live] in a world where we can make our choices only among the alternatives actually available." So what are the alternatives? Debating on who is to blame for where we are? As if coming to the correct conclusion will magically teleport us out of our grim situation. History is important and should not be dismissed, but what should we take from history, should we add up the score and see who is right or wrong, or should we learn from mistakes so that the history we make now is better for those that will have to endure the consequences in the future. After all, don't we all wish we knew what we know now back in 2003 or 2007? Things may be different today. Or is the alternative, to choose which political party you belong to, fearing you're on the "right" side of the issue. This only perpetuates the tendencies of finding a scape goat to blame.
The only other alternative I see, notice I said "I", is to make a choice of ideas. Ideas are greatly under rated. An idea can surface and vanish in the blink of an eye. Or an idea, such as liberty, freedom, and equality, which can surface and prove persistent, can change the world. How many ideas are being brought forth onto the "American Stage"? (I like to call it that because even Tim Tebow can be on that stage.) A lot. This website is a testament to an idea that is both new and old. An idea that has been forgotten and at times seems as if it is slowly fading away with each passing year. Of all the alternatives there are to choose from, I choose Liberty. I choose to stand behind this idea and those who support it, so that when I grow old and grey my children and grand-children have a history to learn from. I fear that if I do not make my stamp in history, then my idea of Liberty may as well vanish with the rest of them, and I am not going to let that happen.
