Those who expect to reap the benefits of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. – Thomas Paine

Another Year Goes By...

Well the end of 2008 has come! We've gone through it again with the government rapidly increasing in size. I have not really seen government intervention so much as I have in this last year. We've seen a great economic crash and the government's useless economic stimulus packages, bailouts, and inflation come and go. We've seen troops needlessly killed in Iraq.

But on the bright side of things, we've seen a new Revolution take place. People are starting to realize that the government is too big, that are precious freedoms are being taken. Ron Paul launched his Campaign for Liberty and saw people flocking to be a part of it. Within only a few months over 110,000 people would join. These people are more willing than ever to fight for our freedoms.

Although we now have a President and a majority of Congress who does not advocate freedom, freedom will not be forgotten. We have a handful in Congress who are willing to speak out against the government and advocate freedom.

As for me, I am very optimistic about our future. Yes, we very well may have another terrorist attack because of our flawed foreign policy, the economy will most likely get worse because of the government intervention, the government may take more of our freedoms away, but I believe when it's all through, freedom will again ring loud and clear.

The government does not want freedom to ring. They are ringing their bell of control, more war, and communism. But if we do our part to spread the message of freedom, I believe in the end, freedom will be ringing louder than ever. Let Freedom Ring!
