My Country Tis of … Who?

     A lot has gone on since my last blog, I should probably be
writing more. My absence though not from becoming disengaged but rather the opposite, unlike many Americans I don’t feel the answer is to give up. Taking the fight for our country to the people on
a more 1-1 level before our state primary may take away from my writing but it has its advantages, there is nothing like hearing the pulse of our country through the veins of the
public.

Announcing their battle plan to increase taxes on job creators and heating up …

Guns Don’t Kill, Liberals Do

     Everybody is weighing in on the latest of the shooting spree

tyranny of convenience. Obamacare, NDAA, the Patriot Act, Homeland Security and the …
