The Freedom Thinker’s mixture of political ideologies leans strongly towards constitutional and libertarian views. He identifies directly with no political party although he is a registered Democrat.

The bloggers from the west coast to the east; from the north to the south; and from small town to big cities keep things fresh.

  1. Enjoying your website. Your father told me about it. Keep up the good works. Let’s get some more hits in here and stop the dumbing down of America!

  2. Challenge to others – In a time of great transition, upheaval, and change, people are searching for leaders who understand what is going on and can navigate troubled waters with a clear biblical foundation. After a thorough examination of the Keynesian economic and political system that led us into the crisis we find ourselves today, we need to see that our current financial, economic and social problems cannot be resolved by conservative or liberal thinkers. In addition, those with a libertarian bent will see that their solutions to problems only work to the extent that those solutions follow, wittingly or unwttingly, biblical principles. The present situation in the U.S. provides a unique opportunity. We know that heros arise out of crisis. We need some. I am glad missives can start to point them out and promote them. Dwelling on losers like the President of the U.S. or Senators in D.C. (whose campaign slogans are “Indicted but Never Convicted”) as well as all the corruption that accompany them, don’t always make for cheerful missives. So what does? The missives that continue the theme of preparedness, positioning and strategy. If read correctly, the missives show great opportunities and great circumstances rather than the opposite.

  3. Love your blog. Good writing. I am looking forward to reading more.

    My blog is Head Muscle http://www.headmuscle.wordpress.com

    I am just getting my blog started and ran across yours as I was blog surfing. I am going to blog roll you. Please check my site out too. Not much there yet but I am working on additional authors.

  4. Hey guys – a couple of you seem to have Tennessee roots, so I figured I’d pose this question to you. I’ve got a reader who is interested in finding out how to leverage the blogosphere to benefit his conservative state senate campaign in the Nashville area. Any ideas of folks who could help him do that? I’m a fan of Nashville, but my connections don’t go very far beyond a beer on Beale St.

    1. I just noticed this. Sorry it took some time to get back to you. We all went to college in Tennessee I worked there for a few years before leaving but don’t have many connections back that way myself; TP or SVN might have some, but my connections are similar to yours as it was my college days which I spent in Tennessee.
