I am a student at Minnesota State University in Mankato, MN. I am majoring in Economics and will graduate with a B.S. in about a year. I am employed in the guest services and hospitality industry. I enjoy my studies, but for hobbies and leisure, I enjoy collecting and reading comic books, playing games with my friends, and going to the movies. Lately, I have also found myself staying more informed through various news sources on the web, in print, and over the television. I find it fascinating to try and decipher the facts from the spin and then forming my own hypotheses of the effects.
I am a firm believer in Jesus Christ. I believe that true liberty will not be realized until he comes back as he promised. Given that, I believe it is important for us, regardless of spiritual beliefs, to champion for the cause of liberty. Only in a nation that holds firm to its principles of liberty, economic and social, are any of us assured that we can discuss, debate, agree, and disagree.
Currently, I see both major parties in the U.S.A. promoting bigger government as the guarantor of freedom and equality. They're also making ongoing promises which are not theirs to make. Our Constitution is under attack, and it is not the big stuff we have to fear most (those are the distraction). No, we must be diligent and on guard for the small, insidious changes that never seem so bad taken alone. If our nation has become the great melting pot, the people are the proverbial frogs in the kettle. Through gradual changes in our Constitution, laws and reintrepretations, the citizens of this great nation are becoming accustomed to the heat even as it is being turned up to dangerous levels. I believe we have to work diligently against this and work to raise awareness among our neighbors who have yet to realize the madness that is going on. While some see the government as our guarantor of liberty, I believe we need to remind people that it is the rule of law in the Constitution and the people themselves that are the guarantors of liberty. I believe it is time that we work to educate, raise awareness, vote out the rascals, and elect statesmen (local and federal) who will carry out their responsibilities as outlined in the Constitution.
I stand with all of you in this renaissance of and revolution for our liberty and our sovereign nation. May God bless each us and may God bless America
