Just Think About It


People say to me, "Floyd, it's Christmas or New Years Eve or (pick a holiday), why don't you relax, take a break for a while?"

Look, I realize that in the grand scheme of things I am a nobody. I have no power, I am not filthy stinking rich, I cannot make anyone do anything, nor should I be able to, but I do have a voice and I intend to use that voice to reach anyone I can. Maybe all I can do is plant the occasional "seed of knowledge" and get someone to start thinking about an issue in a way they haven't before. All I can do is try to use the tools and skills that I have, limited though they may be, to let others know that they are not alone in their frustration and beliefs.

The bottom line is that those who seek more power, those who want to take more of your money, your rights, your liberty, are not "resting." They don't take time off, they don't give a tinker's damn about you or what you think or want, so all I can do is try to provide another side of the story, of the issues that face us, and hope something takes root. I can only hope that I have had some impact, some influence in giving others some food for thought. At the end of the day I do not seek to force anything on anyone, as others want to do. I do not expect others to live their lives as I want them to, or to "do as I do."

All I want is for people to understand what liberty means., what true freedom is. To me it means that you can live your life as you see fit, the only proviso being that you harm no one and you do not infringe on the rights of others, either directly or by voting for those who would do the infringing on your behalf. I hope that has been clear up to this point. If I have not been clear, if you remain confused about what I mean, please let me know, so that I may clear up any confusion.

In the end, while many may disagree with me or even think I'm a nut, I am not going to shut up and go away. I will continue to use my voice to do what I can to influence the continuing struggle for liberty.
