I am the patriot because I know a true patriot is always ready to stand up against his own government. It is unfortunate that we have to do this but when we have dishonesty and corruption running through our government at all levels and when they make their highest priority prohibition, then we must make a stand and teach others why this is wrong. I was recently voted to the executive of the local chapter of the Libertarian Party. I know I have a way of being blunt, sarcastic and usually abrasive, but since they don't play games, neither do I. I would really like to see a political forum on this site. So far, it looks pretty good.
