Law and liberty cannot rationally become the objects of our love, unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.

If we are truly to return to our founding fathers' vision of a free Republic we have to elect a president who will fight every day for that Republic. The only candidate I see willing to do that so far is Ron Paul.

It's imperative that we get a true Constitutional Carry bill. We don't want a watered down concealed carry bill that will lead to fees or a database of all those who conceal carry. The Second Amendment is just as important as the First Amendment. Our lawmakers should not be putting all sorts of regulations in the way of law-abiding citizens' right to concealed carry. For years liberals have gotten away with making law-abiding citizens beg for their Second Amendment rights. It's time the state of Wisconsin take the Constitution seriously and that includes the Second Amendment.
I want to pass along this e-mail from Campaign for Liberty with critical information for those who want to get involved.

Dear Wisconsin Patriots,
You made the phones blow up in the capitol in support of Constitutional Concealed Carry! Several legislators said that they could not believe the support for this issue.
This is a great first step, but this battle is going to be a hard one.
Especially since in its latest email, the NRA is supporting the watered-down "permit carry" bill.
The next step starts right now, and that is your commitment to attend and/or speak at one of the hearings on the carry bills. You see, we need to show massive support for Constitutional Concealed Carry, so we must show up in force at these hearings.
The hearings are scheduled for next Thursday--one in Wausau and one in Madison. Wausau will be on both the permit bill and the Constitutional bill, and Madison will only be on the watered-down permit bill.
Will you attend or speak at one of these meetings next Thursday?
Click here to RSVP to one of these hearings so that we know how many people we will have in support of Constitutional Carry.

Again, attendance at these meetings is critical. If you are able, please make sure you RSVP to attend one of these meetings next Thursday by clicking here.
The future of Constitutional Concealed Carry may depend on it.

P.S. It’s critical that we fill out the room at these hearings. Will you stand for Constitutional Concealed Carry? Click here to RSVP to attend one of these hearings.
Our biggest competition will not be other Midwestern states, but rather the South. With the South being predominantly right-to-work, and lower taxes, they have the advantage right now. If Wisconsin is going to continue its pro-business reforms right-to-work must be taken serious and should be a priority of Gov. Scott Walker.
Last week marked an important milestone in the war on terrorism for our country. Osama bin Laden applauded the 9/11 attacks. Such deliberate killing of innocent lives deserved retaliation. It is good that bin Laden is dead and justice is served. The way in which he was finally captured and killed shows that targeted retribution is far superior to wars of aggression and nation-building. In 2001 I supported giving the president the authority to pursue those responsible for the vicious 9/11 attacks. However, misusing that authority to pursue nation-building and remaking the Middle East was cynical and dangerous, as the past ten years have proven. [read more]
I had to pass along this great post by Guffaw in AZ: Evil Black Rifles which gives a little history on his response to the assault weapons ban and what the current administration is up to.
