Hello new visitors

* * *

Welcome to the new visitors starting to arrive here at my humble corner of the metaverse. I am just an ordinary American, like you are, deeply worried about the damage that is being done to our country. You don't have to be an ultra right-wing extremist to be alarmed by erosion of liberty and the weakening of this great nation.

Apparently patriotism is something to sneer at for roughly half of our country. Or is it? It's hard for me to believe that everyone who voted for the most far left radical candidate in history is really as extreme as he and his entourage are. What I do know is, these people do not speak for me.

We who support free enterprise, personal responsibility, voluntary acts of charity, unobtrusive government, and strong defense... and abhor the socialist slide we're currently facing... must combine our strengths without delay.

We know what we believe, why we believe it, and we have logic and reason and solid history on our side. Through these rough times, I'm learning who my truest friends are: the people who are friends and supporters of the greatest nation this world has ever seen. We all know we have a precious constitution worth defending, and a vital role as leader of the free world.

Thank you, and welcome.

This is a small personal site. I write for it in my spare time between other projects, and I don't maintain it as a debate forum. Please note, if you're here to be disruptive, you should do us both a favor and direct your energies elsewhere.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.

We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

Ronald Reagan

40th president of US (1911 - 2004)
