The Right Guy will be going through some personal renovations soon and it may be a good time to consider some renovations to The Right Guy blog as well. In the next few weeks there will be some changes in the W’s of this blog and hopefully a somewhat different attitude on my part. May be more gravitas in some areas, less in others. It seems every 6 months I get off track a bit and need a correction. In the coming weeks, there will be a correction, I promise you. 🙂 Anyway, as I always say, Freedom First, Freedom Last, and what I mean is the fight for liberty is never through until we rid our government of the stink of collectivism, socialism, and marxism, in all its guises, whether democrat, republican, or progressive greenie wingnut. Those that would use the government to enforce their views, to take your time and property, do so with the barrel of a gun pointed at your head. A government is supposed to protect it’s citizens natural rights, not enslave the population for the purpose of some oligarchical concern. There should be no social contract that destroys individual rights and personal responsibilities.
Thank you for reading this blog.
I’ve ben at this damn blog for over 6 months now and I finally realized, where had the time gone? Tempus Fugit as they say or Time Flees, which it has. In the this time I believe I have expounded my thoughts passably at times, but lately I find myself conforming to the republican template too much, following Team Geppetto’s lead in the malignant populism that both sides of the isle participate in, in order to manipulate us to their will. I think I have gotten away from my original theme which is of course freedom. Yes nebulous, sacrosanct, misunderstood and least appreciated, freedom.
I received a response from Brian Gongol Earlier in the week. I apologize for not getting back to Brian and anyone else in regards to this subject. I will furnish below Brian’s email in it’s entirety and I will respond where I feel appropriate. Thank you Brian for responding to me.
It just so happens that I wrote an essay four years ago proposing an alternative to the gas tax that specifically avoids the use of liberty-eroding GPS trackers:
For what it’s worth, I suspect that you and I probably agree on a lot. But it’s really hard to be an advocate for small government when my own supposed comrades are out there saying “then again may be he likes grabbing his ankles”. You’re free to say whatever you like, but I’ll invite you to name one person in local radio who tries harder to advocate for liberty than I do.
