What I Want from My Country

I want an end to our “wars” and for our troops to come home as soon as possible.
I want the government to protect us by protecting our borders not by preemptive strikes or monitoring its law-abiding citizens.
I want the government to stop regulating us excessively.
I want to stop the “Federalization” of life’s every aspect. Government is best on smaller scales.
I want sovereignty to be returned to the states.
I want the government to stop pushing any kind of social agenda on the people.
I want the Internet to be free of regulation and without a “kill switch.”
I want the Constitution to be the rule of law, not some old document.
I want the balance of power to return to the constitutionally granted checks and balances.
I want the government to stop spending so much money.
I want the government to stop interfering in the economy so that it can run its natural course.
I want simplified taxes.
I want an end to the divisiveness of the two party system.
I want the government to leave us alone to live our lives in the manner of our own choosing.

Liberty needs to be protected or we will lose it completely. Everything we have been doing erodes liberty. For this reason, I will choose the candidate for President that will check off the things on my list and then some—Gary Johnson, the former Governor of New Mexico and the Libertarian candidate for President.

Begin Anew

A lot has happened since I’ve neglected this blog.  The biggest change, however, has been within myself.
It’s been two months since my mom passed.  Sometimes, it feels as though it happened yesterday, while other times, it feels as if that day was so long ago.  I realized that I have been numb for many months.  Since maybe October or September or perhaps longer than that.
I posted an account of my mom’s battle on my author blog.
The business of dying weighs on the living, on the surviving, as if the entirety of the hourglass sands dumped on you.  There’s the funeral, the casket, the cemetery plot, the headstone, the obituary, the ordering of death certificates.  Then, taking her name off of things, most of which needed to wait until the state mailed the death certificates.  Yes, plural.  You have to give them places like the bank and registrar of deeds.
Doing all this stuff takes a long time.  And then, there’s the matter of telling the stranger on the other line what happened.  After…

Debate Dichotomy

Gary Johnson is not allowed to participate in the debate tonight. I honestly think that both parties are afraid of his political allure.

I don’t think the debates between Obama and Romney are that important. It’ll be the same ol’ same old crap we’ve been hearing over and over from both of them.

However, if Gary Johnson were included, then the debates would matter. Different ideas would be heard. Discourse might actually happen in this country.

We need to change the dialogue. The media gatekeepers perpetuate this stale rhetoric. Our ears are tired of being filled with the load of nothingness. Too many of us have turned our backs. Too many of us have said that there is nothing we can do.

This is simply not true. We can do something. The Constitution gives us the right of peaceful assembly. In this digital age, assembly may need to take place on the internet.

Open a dialogue in which everyone can participate. It is time we no longer feel powerless. Our votes do count. We j…

The New Normal

Less and less Americans have jobs. Prices keep jumping higher and higher. Crime seeps even further into our streets. Americans are dying abroad. Our flag’s ashes mix with the sands of foreign lands.

Every time I read a new headline on Drudge, my insides drop and unrelenting sadness crashes over me like a tidal wave and I try to not let myself be pulled under with the current.

The election is less than two months away. We can get out of this maelstrom.
