Campaign for Liberty

When I first started this blog, I envisioned it being a place where I could somewhat follow the campaign the Ron Paul was running for the presidency, but also explore how the ideas of political, economic and religious liberty mesh with the teachings of the LDS church.

Unfortunately, as with many blogs, I got busy and was somewhat disappointed in the primary results that rolled in for my favorite candidate. Perhaps I was a little to near-sighted, but not anymore.

Over the past few months I've gotten excited again, despite the outcome of the 2 major party candidate races, to again join the campaign to pursue liberty in public political discourse. I listened with excitement last night as the announcement was made for the new Campaign for Liberty which is being organized from the momentum built by the presidential campaign.

As outlined in The Revolution: A Manifesto, this fresh look at liberty is the beginning of a more long term movement, not just a short term flash in the pan. With such recognition, I'm going to start again to post here. My plan is to help further this idea in any way I can, but also to better educate myself on the issues and philosophies that drive it.

I hope you can catch some of the excitement I had when watching this kick-off video.

So much to do, but so important to our future.
