Re: Liberty. Here it is brothers.
I think it's a great presentation but I'm trying hard to figure out who or what this supports. The link asks for money, so where does the money go?
I think at its core you have great beliefs, Darin. If I have any criticism its that you tent to ascribe all the bad qualities on "the other guy" while your guys all wear white hats. I certainly don't believe in this. I think truly critical thinking and self-ownership lies in using your own noodle rather than getting wrapped up in the dogmatic talking points of those one might listen to. The idea that your side *could* be wrong is equally important as wondering if the other guy is wrong.
I'm a Democrat, but I certainly don't drink the Cool Aid! I hope we have the common sense to turn off the stimulus once we're out of the woods economically. And I hope that we remain vigilant to the cause of fighting terrorism. Some people on the far left seem content with the idea of shutting the whole cause down and that really bugs me. The memories of some, it seems, appear short!
Those, however, are just examples. I think if there's one thing that comforts me is the concept illustrated best by Thomas Jefferson; that a little revolution now and then is healthy.
In 10 years or so, the political pendulum will swing the other way. Ultimately, I think the best thing the individual has going for them in terms of government is that no one side has it *their way* indefinitely. Could you imagine if they did?!? Yikes!
The best thing we, as individuals, can do is be involved. I think the Internet is a great tool, both to inform people and mobilize activity. The voting public was far too lazy in the past.
Good luck to us!
