About me

Location Ludlow, Northeast, United States
Introduction A man of varying interest who spent much of my life trying to excel at that which I did not love but rather at what I felt I would make more money doing. A mistake as it turned out, one probably made by many. But what the heck, it paid the bills and gave me a good life. Writing, music, and ballroom dancing are my hobbies, dancing I rarely get a chance to do anymore because of time and ailments. But hey, we all get older. My passions? Philosophy, politics and the quaint notion that we all deserve to be free of oppressive government. My strongest beliefs? That government should be limited, that individuals are more important than the collective, that capitalism is the only effective way to motivate people and create wealth, and liberty carries with it a great responsibility. Many people today seem unwilling or unable to recognize this. My greatest fear? That the Obama administration will succeed in turning this great nation into a socialist/Marxist state unless we, the people, wake up. My burning desire? To have a successful run at maintaining a website/blog that will help shift the political winds in America in a rational and productive capitalist direction.
