Over the last 30 years I have closely watched the political trends and activities on the state and national level. After being raised in a liberal home, and voting for Jimmy Carter in 1980, my political philosophy began leaning decidedly toward conservatism.
I began to see how liberalism was first of all penalizing the people who worked and produced in our society by taking money away from them and then redistributing it to others who didn’t work. But it also occurred to me that liberalism was not really helping the recipients of this income redistribution either. The concept of ‘liberal compassion’ is a complete hoax, because when you give someone these free benefits, you rob him of any incentive to work or get educated for a job or career, which are the very things he needs to do to get ahead and be independent, and you make that person dependent on the state. I decided I had to take an active role in spreading the conservative philosophy.
In 2003 I decided to get more actively involved in educating people on conservative political positions. At that time I founded CommonSenseGovernment.com, which features conservative political news, commentary, and resources. This site contain over 70 articles that I have written on conservative politics.
These articles have been widely distributed on the web and featured on such sites as www.IntellectualConservative.com.
