I have the utmost respect for members of the United States armed forces that put their lives on the line defending this country. Whether you agree or disagree with the United States current foreign policy, it is crucial that we support those that actively serve and care for our Veteran’s at home.

Many people incorrectly assume that a two party system gives them a choice.

The day has finally arrived! The liberty chain has a blog on the interwebs. I’ll be acting as administrator of the blog and I have invited The Snake, Clair, McWilliams, and Howie to contribute as authors. I could also see the addition of a JB and a Trent if you two are interested. I’m excited to kick off a new era of campaigning for liberty and promoting the campaign of Ron Paul, the all time champion of liberty. I think it’s only
