Having lived outside of the US from 1983 – 2007, by the time I returned I was surprised and concerned about the direction the country was taking. In 2009 I joined a couple of Tea Party groups but was not encouraged by the confusion I witnessed. I am not a joiner; I prefer to work by myself – yet I realize that we are in this together and I love my country and its good people.
Blogging seemed natural to me. Spurred by the failure of the media I focused on vetting reliable sources and verifying stories before publishing and distributing them to trusted contacts and their networks. People need authorized knowledge, not hearsay or speculation, in order to make decisions that will affect their futures. As much as possible I also endeavor to illustrate universal principles, how they can best be applied to contemporary life and what happens when they are ignored.
The truth is not an agenda.
Since I am a conservative underground operative I prefer to go by a pen name. Benjamin Franklin would surely understand.
Note: NOT funded by the Koch brothers!! The only dictates I follow are those of my conscience.
