News: "[A] wise and frugal government...shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government." --Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 1801

I've got my eye on government ...

So, what's up with Liberty's Price?  Well, as anyone who visits lately can plainly see, not too much.

After a series of attacks by register-bots and new members who only wanted to post porn and advertisements we found it necessary to restrict registration of new members to be handled by the admin on a one-by-one basis.  The admin has not been overloaded with applications, to say the least.  However, traffic to the site remains at a steady pace and is surprisingly high for a site that has had little new content posted in some time.

That's the key ... Liberty's Price has enduring value because of all the practical information posted already.  Postings that inform, instruct and explain.  Postings that stimulate and make you ponder some very serious questions.  For that, at least, Liberty's Price is here for the long haul.  The "management" will keep the site up indefinitely in order to keep this content available to each new wave of curious and interested Patriots that find, enjoy and appreciate what all of YOU have built here.

ConchMan has been remiss about posting, as much as or more than anyone.  I've spent a stint with a local New Jersey group (NJCSD) which is doing good work but has some internal political and ego problems.  In the end I had to walk away from that but still give it my full support and encouragement.  I've been pursuing some personal career changes, having built a budding career in acting in the New York stage and on not yet well known film projects.  Over the past two years I've developed quite a resume and hope one day to be up on the stage collecting one of those little gold statues.  We'll see.

We all know it's a stormy time and that big storms could be on the horizon -- in that area I've been working with my friends and neighbors, talking about "what if" situations and making contingency plans.  In the next few years our challenges may be more economic than political, though those two arenas are tightly interwoven.  I'm putting "survival plans" into place and keeping the equipment sharp and clean and well supplied.  With any luck at all I won't have to use it, but it's ready if it's needed.

Perhaps more than anything else right now it's important that we build and maintain Community.  When the chips are down each of us will HAVE to work together with others and we need to build those relationships and understand their limits before they are needed.  We won't be able to place absolute demands on others anymore than others can expect blind obedience from us.  We'll need to understand how far people will go and, hopefully, something about their limits so we don't push them too far.  We also need to know our own limits so we can stand our ground when it becomes necessary - personally and politically.

I continue to have great faith in the American People and the principles of Liberty that spurred our Founding Fathers to action and sustained them even through the darkest hours.  I continue to believe, not like Adams - who said that once Freedom is lost it is lost forever - but that the Liberty and Freedom that this country has brought to the world will not and cannot be extinguished.  The People have eaten of the "forbidden fruit" and no Tyrant can prevail for long against what has been awakened in us.

There are no natural rights ... eat or be eaten
"Rights" are the basic rules of life agreed upon by all
All "Rights" are both individual and collective
All societies are founded on "Rights"
Governments have only the powers specifically granted them
All power resides in the People at all times
