An interesting paper to read. Especially for those people that like to hold Europe as a model for the United States of America to follow. Only for healthcare though – not for voting: Mail-in Voting Rules Across Countries (ssrn.com)
Title is enough to remind us all of our living hope!
I always found it useful to have a questioning attitude in both my naval career and while leadership coaching. Trying to find the “why”. I have also discovered that it is EXTREMELY important to have that same attitude towards any proposed legislation at the local, state, and federal level. If we all had the same attitude towards our supposed elected representatives as we do in our business and personal lives our Constitutional Republic would not be in the mess it is in right now. I would encourage you all to look at your respective state’s and federal government proposed legislation and ask yourself – “Why” is this piece of legislation necessary? “Why” does it cost so much money? “Why” is it supported by only one of the major political parties?
Just returned home today after a quick trip to the Peoples’ Republic of New York for some personal issues. I had been paying attention to the return of the character Elliot Stabler to Law & Order SVU and the new spinoff Law & Order Organized Crime. I have to tell you all that I used to be a big fan of the show, although I have not watched in years. That all changed in the first 10 minutes of tonight’s new episode. In the first few minutes Elliot’s rental car was blown up and his wife was injured. A suspect (Caucasian) was brought in for questioning based upon some evidence that pointed to his involvement in violent protests against police and law enforcement that one of the detectives stated “these people have been emboldened during the last four years”. Well, we all know what that was pointing to, don’t we. Based upon all the evidence that anti-vaxxers and anti-government corruption, and rigged election people destroyed property and injured or killed law enforcement personnel over the last four years. More bull fertilizer coming from network TV to attribute leftist’s ideology and actions on any other group but themselves. Sickening, but the left is winning the culture war. How can we regain the tactical, operational, and strategic advantage once again. Let me know your thoughts on the matter. As for me, just another reason to no longer watch TV.

There are presently five gun control Bills in Congress with many more expected to come in light of the recent mass shooting events in Georgia and Colorado (which already has some very strict, “commonsense” gun control laws on the books).
H.R.8 “Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021”
H.R.1446 “Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021”.
H.R.127 “Sabiki Sheikh Firearms and Regulations Act.”
H.R.1808/S.736 “Assault Weapons Ban Act”.
Listed below are the links to access these Bills, When the link, “summary”, is provided on these pages, it should be used to become familiar with the contents of the Bill.
For our Tennessee residents, please contact Senators Blackburn and Hagerty and tell them to vote NO on these, or any other bills that would violate our Second Amendment rights, and the first law of nature – self-defense.
For residents of other states, it is vitally important that you contact your Senators. Encourage our family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to do so as well. Stand on the side of LIBERTY.
Please click on the link at the bottom of the page to hear some amazing gun ownership statistics. Do not think for a minute that the gun grabbers in Washington are not aware of this information. They are not interested in SAVING lives. They are interested in CONTROLLING lives.
If you want your children to know the America that you grew up in then you must become familiar with H.R. 1, 8, 1446, the 1619 Project, Critical Race Theory, etc. And it is not enough to become familiar with these issues. We must be vocal, active, well organized and committed to our founding documents. Rest assured, our 1st Amendment is equally as important as the 2nd Amendment. We need to exercise it and speak out regarding our God given rights.
It is critical (speaking of critical) that we communicate with our friends and family all over the country. Do not assume that there are other organizations as concerned as we are. There may be, but the more the better. The better organized the more influence we will have and the more effective we will be.
We will do our best to provide you with as much information as possible on important issues, as we become aware of them.

Pay attention to media reports about the mass shootings around the nation. What story are they telling? Is it about guns? In all cases, or about the ethnicity of one shooter and not the other? The ethnicity of the victims in one of the events but not the other? Asks yourselves why the different treatments of the instruments or tools used, why the different narratives around why one is a “hate crime” and the other isn’t. It is the difference between ‘A’ story and ‘THE’ story. Guiding the national conversations to what the new aristocracy and their media enablers want you think. They do not want you to think for yourself.
My fellow Patriots,
I just finished recording and editing the fourth full episode of the podcast. It is getting more exciting with each recording. To catch everybody up, I did the inaugural episode, and one each on the topics of Liberty, Leadership, and Lies. The Lies will be released Wednesday morning. Next week’s episode will be recorded a bit early due to some travel plans. My older brother and I are driving to New York to see our biological father because he was just diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. My brothers and I have to go through this again. My dad, the man who raised me, passed away in 2015 after a very short battle with his cancer.
I hope you all keep listening to the podcast and subscribe to it, as well as subscribing to blog updates here on the website.
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
I will be posting synopsis of every episode in future blog posts.
