Scott Adams pinged this blog article, and hundreds of other bloggers have now liked and referenced it. My cent-worth isn’t significant, but I think it worth trying.
This is really something you need to read and consider.
What he says about Lincoln is correct, except I’m no longer convinced we should consider him a hero. I love my brethren from south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and I’m glad visiting their states is no harder than any other. For that matter, I’m thankful that visiting, or moving to, another state doesn’t require interaction with the state governments (nor federal government). Of course, it should be that way all over. It shouldn’t be hard, nor regulated, to move somewhere else, not even from Mexico to Oklahoma. And I suspect moving to the CSA wouldn’t be that hard today if we’d let the CSA form and figure it out. If the USA had treated the southern states as as reasonable partners, who needed a bit more time to come to the realization of freedom themselves, I suspect the whole world would be a better place. Still, what we have is good. So, I let it go. We still have work to do. We need to keep trying to improve it one heart at a time.
Sure, we need to keep track of people from other countries, but some simple rules that work fine between the states would work fine with most countries. We need to be working toward such a freedom-based system.
Oh, did I mention the original blog post is worth reading? Yeah, it really is. Click the link and read it.
Also, trust freedom.
If you notice we are actually losing our freedoms, give me a call. If it comes to needing to man the ramparts, count on me. However, think about it. We ain’t getting there any time soon, not in the life of the current President, not for at least a few decades to come. We won’t lose our freedom to a despot. We will lose it to bureaucratic regulators. We already are. Frankly, armed revolt won’t fix that, but reducing government overall will.
Let freedom ring, and don’t hype yourself over perceived insults. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
I am not an expert on Hitler. But my father is.
He toured post-war Germany extensively in 1957 and ’58 as a child performer. And he often recounts the stories. He befriended teenage Lebensborn children (if you don’t know what Lebensborn children are …well …before you post anymore about Hitler you should read about them). He visited an SS widow and got a peek at her husband’s uniform and Luger (that he’d committed suicide with), she had stored in an old trunk, in the attic.
These and other intense experiences in Germany sent my father on a life-long quest to understand this sociopath (Hitler) and the country that allowed itself to be dragged into one of the darkest chapters in world history. My dad is a Hitler/Nazi buff the way Indiana Jones’ dad was a Holy Grail buff.
As the son of a man with this hobby (one might call…
