Inaugural Post and Mission Statement

Welcome all, to the site that attempts to answer the question, "Why is everything backwards?"

My primary focus will be on politics and common sense solutions to the problems that face us in America, but other topics will be explored to break up what could become an extremely tedious subject.

The mission will be to explore conservative alternatives to big government programs, with an eye towards the best solution for the greatest number of people. My belief is that a well-informed population will eventually arrive at a mutually beneficial solution all by themselves, without any prompting from Washington. I also believe, much like Ayn Rand, that individuals acting in the best interests of themselves and their families and guided by their conscience are the driving force for good here on Earth. I also believe that our free market economy has done more to benefit mankind than any other in history, and left unfettered, has the potential to do even more to elevate the human condition.

As serious as this sounds, I intend to sprinkle liberal doses of wryness and humor on these opinions whenever possible, as a comic sense of the absurd helps us to retain our sanity in a backwards world.

I sincerely hope I can offer a worthwhile forum, have a few laughs and maybe even learn some things along the way.

Let's set our sights on the second star to the left...
