I don’t like to delve into politics on this site, but prefer to discuss principles. However the last speech Ron Paul gave to congress is too important to not share it, and the only politics involved stems from Ron Paul being in Congress himself.

As political as you may find it, it was all about principle. It’s about looking at what it going on around us, and why we got to our current situation. If we don’t know what it is really happening and how we got here, how can we fix it? It comes down to working more on our own education and our own actions.

Here are some of my favorite parts from it that should be considered by everyone, in whatever country you live in. (more…)

freedomAs I’m usually doing these days, I was listening to a CD from the LIFE Freedom Pack called ‘History of Freedom’ by Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady. These are two gentlemen who have studied so much history, and understand what it means to be free. More importantly, they understand where freedom comes from.

There is truth to the saying that you don’t know what you have until it’s gone, however I don’t believe that you need to lose something; you just need to know what it is to not have it. If you can picture it in your mind, it can be almost as real as having it happen.

Hopefully, by summarizing the CD here, you can get a better idea of what it means, and a better understanding of how to keep your freedoms. Most of this is from the CD, except where I bring in a Canadian perspective, or use ‘I’.

Freedom is something around which all of us should be able to rally. Freedom is something that ought to be a universal agreement by individuals everywhere that freedom is a shared, sacred ideal. Something that is valuable, and, as a matter of fact invaluable in the lives of people. But yet freedom doesn’t seem to be understood. It seems to be misunderstood. It seems to get mistreated, shoved in the back corner, abused, tortured and even water boarded.
