This is a letter to our friends –

The internet is changing

No one has read the new internet regulations. One thing is certain. “Big Brother” has climbed on the bandwagon to help steer.

Over the years, these columns and blogs have earned a loyal following. In the unlikely event that these blog posts “disappear,” I hope you will stop now and record the e-mail address, phone number and physical address somewhere. Then, if need be, contact me.

There will always be a way to be heard.

John Locke went to the fundamentals, “[W]hat State men are naturally in, and that is, a State of perfect Freedom to order their Actions, and dispose of their Possessions, and Persons as they think fit, within the bounds of the Law of Nature, without asking leave, or depending upon the Will of any other man.”

Nothing exists without a set of laws to govern it. Were you placed as the only person on earth, you would be in a “State of perfect Freedom”. You could go where you liked, eat and sleep when you choose, without getting permission. However: You could not fly because you would still be governed by the “Law of Nature”.

Suppose you discover another person. Now there are two of you. You reason, “If I do not want that person to step on my toe, then I should not step on his toe.” – – You have just discovered another “Law of Nature.” Your “freedom” stops at the tip of his nose.

Dear reader, that is the sort of liberty upon which our great nation was founded. That liberty did not come from government, it was a gift from God. BTW – God does exist!

I do not consider “belief in God’s existence” to be a “religion.” It is a fact. Evidence is overwhelming. Disbelief is foolish. On the other hand, religious denominations are created around differences in understanding among men, all of whom are imperfect.

America’s founders recognized that men must be free to develop their individual understanding. To be at liberty, one must be free to search for truth where and how he “thinks fit.” Our founders saw their goal in forming the structure (laws) of America to create a government that would safeguard that “State of perfect Freedom”.

I am an American possessing God-given liberty. I will not be told I may not pray where and when I “think fit.” I will not be told I may not share my thoughts with others whether or not they are “politically correct.”
