2018 State of the Blog

Thank you to the supporters, critics, and even the spam bots for a great 2017. 2018 should be even better.

Unlike 2016, in 2017, I could not commit to any public appearances. My time has been unpredictable and limited, so Twitter has been a great outlet. I have really enjoyed the dialogue on Twitter.

I have found Twitter supporters across the political spectrum ranging from Democrats, Republicans, socialists, capitalists, libertarians, and anarchists.

We are united in our opposition to our common enemies: the collectivist statists who demand an ever increasing amount of involuntarily collected taxes for projects that we the people wouldn't choose to voluntarily pay for.

Government programs should be transparently budgeted, voluntarily crowd funded, and administered as locally as possible.

Thank you for your continued support!
