About This Author

I am a "Ronald Reagan Conservative," who gets teary-eyed at the playing of our National Anthem. I believe that our federal government has become a monstrous, cancerous growth that, if not curtailed, will end the individual liberties that our Founding Fathers intended. Each and every time we, as a nation, delegate an individual responsibility to the government, we lose at least an equal amount of freedom, liberty, and independence. This is a national "blind spot," and a slippery slope towards socialism which is creeping into our country at an alarming rate.

Two quotes inspire me to take action, both by Thomas Jefferson:

"I'lI predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
