It is Constitution Day, after all.
I was thinking that I never got around to why I blog. So I figure should start writing about that right now.
Free Constitution: The Transcending Sovereignty
That's the name; kind of an awkwardly name, but it's mine, and I like it.
Why? Well, I've always thought the Constitution was Free in a sense, but as we all know it by no means came at a low cost, nor was it sustained at a low cost. It is a document that immortalizes valuable principles while remaining free from the whims of even the most powerful politicians, and despite all efforts the Constitution continues to confound its enemies with the immortal words of Liberty as the only Supreme Law of the United States.
As for the second part, it's the American way of life, it's the people, the land, the resources, the beauty, and the righteousness of the American citizenry that will always overcome the greatest of challenges. I believe this Sovereignty Transcends all others.
That's why I like the name, but I gave it to my blog because I'm the most patriotic person I know, besides my dad. Despite my thirst for history, I'm not much of a scholar in that field, but I am aware of the many acts that have brought America shame. Myopically, one might come to the conclusion that America is quite an evil place. And I'll be the first to tell you it is. And it isn't. I've seen many great things, and it would be a shame to discount them because of America's misdeeds. This is the freest country, by real standards, and that alone makes this nation great.
Those global polls and studies that say America is not the most free or is not perceived to be the most free are bunk. They were biased before they were written. Because we lack free health care, freedom from guns, lacking in abortion availability, lacking in free retirement benefits... the list goes on; I wasn't sure when all of that became part of the concept of freedom. I just fail to understand how paying for everyone else became inseparably fused with freedom of oneself. Sounds like clashing freedoms... But it's not. One is not really freedom. My thinking on freedom is much in line with this.
This is starting to sound like a rant itself, but it's merely context. The answer to why I blog, and a little about myself will come soon. I will continue to update this post as often as I can, until I feel it's complete.
