Happy Thanksgiving

A quick Happy Thanksgiving to all. Its easy to look at our world, to look at the last hundred years, and mark the slow ebb of human liberty under the pressing forces of socialism. It is easy to decry the inadequate defense of our liberties offered by democracy, which too often acts as a mob wealth redistributor.

But today is a day to think of what has gone right, and lots has. For one, we are just over 200 years into this experiement in Freedom known as the United States, and by and large we do still posess most of our freedoms. Bush has cut taxes and agressively defends our nation. The democrats can't seem to win an election if their life depends on it. Take heart, things may yet turn out ok. We just have to endure the rhetoric of those who have perverted the founding principle of Equality to mean something wholly different and sometimes opposite of equal treatment under the law.

In the meantime, we may look upon the tribulations of Europe as a hard lesson. May we never have to learn it first hand.
