How I’m Beating My Opiod Addiction Without Government Help

There is no greater power in the natural world, than man’s desire to be free, for it is our desire that creates within us the will to succeed. Desire and self-will are the Achilles heel of adversity and affliction. While we will never rid the world of tragedy, pain and disappointment, we have within each of us the power to not only live with them but to eventually prevail over them. It was this strong desire for freedom and self-determination that guided me through the greatest adversity I have ever faced in my life. In the spring of 2011, I quickly came to realize the bondage that drug addiction can place over an individual. From 2011 to the present, my journey down the road of chronic pain, failed surgeries and the prospects of permanent disability has been one with far more valleys than mountaintop celebrations, but more on that later. With nearly 25 million Americans using illicit drugs, 15 million abusing prescription drugs and the growing number of deaths… Keep Reading

The Price Of Free Speech

As a nation we must realize that our words are powerful and have consequences far beyond our control. While we have the freedom of speech to say anything, we must calculate the unintended cost of the words we use.

Reclaim And Rescind – Returning Power To The People

Our great nation was founded by men filled with integrity and honor who were willing to sacrifice not only their fortune but their lives.  They were compelled to leave their homes and careers to help guide our new nation into a direction that would demand restraints upon the government’s role in the lives of the people.  They fought to establish a republic that would grant limited power to a federal government, because they understand that any government with central power is a corrupt government.  These great patriots understood that absolute power corrupts and a best form of government was best left to the states. Since our founding fathers many great patriots have served our nation with humility and distinction.  Their motives pure and sacrifices well noted in the canons of history.  They came with a servants heart to fulfill a need during a time of trouble in our nation.  They exercised fortitude in the face of great adversity and trouble, never compromising their integrity. ​Today there are those that come to D.C. that… Keep Reading
