I blog, therefore I am spending way too much time at my computer. Of course, the only unreasonable and insane response to such a situation is to add another blog to my daily tasks.
So today I announce my new blog Land of the Free. My long-time faithful readers [and I know who you are and love you for it] will know that my first blog, On the Contrary, sported an ornery view in contrast to the usual center-left party-line on the issues of the day. Technical problems that I couldn't resolve put an end to OTC. So I decided to create Kibble to give me the opportunity to post on a wider range of topics of personal interest but with even more bite than OTC. I've enjoyed that very much and intend to keep that the focus of Kibble. Before the November election, I started to add some political topics and will continue some political discussions on Kibble.
As I have approached many political topics both here and in forums of local newspapers and in talks with friends, I have come to the realization that one major approach dominates much of my analysis of public policy. Time and again I find myself opposed to proposed legislation because it conflicts with the basic principles of Jeffersonian libertarianism. [See quote at top of sidebar.] I want to focus my attention and evaluate issues in a way that maximizes individual liberty and minimizes unfortunate and unnecessary interference by the commonality in the exercise of such liberty.
If you wish, Land of the Free offers the opportunity to subscribe via e-mail just as Kibble does. If you already subscribe to Kibble, you won't need to subscribe to L0F. Every few days, I will list links to my latest L0F posts in Kibble and those will appear in the Kibble emails. If an L0F topic interests you, you can just click on the link.
I hope you will take a look at Land of the Free. Unlike Kibble, L0F will allow reader comments on posts, and I hope to promote more discussion that way. The use of topic tags will also make it easier for readers to locate posts on political topics of interest to them.
