Thanks for checking out my blog. I believe in hard work and personal responsibility. On occasion, my blog posts will be short rants triggered by a recent event. Other posts will be more thoughtful due to my passion for history and for the traditional values of our country. The path set forth by our Founding Fathers was right on and started an imperfect America with perfect ideals that later paved the way for the birth of the Republican Party, the Party of Lincoln, that was able to end slavery in America.
The world is a complicated place, and we too often want all solutions wrapped up in a pretty little package, but that is impossible. It is my hope through history I might be able to simplify things a bit. This blog is an opportunity for me to share some history with you and how that history may tie in with things taking place today in our current world.
Also, as a huge fan of historical quotes, and one who believes that “The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation” (Isaac Disraeli) I will often use historical quotes in my posts. I sincerely feel that history is one of the most important resources available to us, but it is all too often misconstrued and used as a political weapon. Propaganda has distorted history from what truly happened and set a narrative that is often too difficult to correct. In some posts, I will attempt to set the record straight on some historical facts. Be warned, for “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” (George Santayana)
