God, I love America.
But, I’m just a citizen blogger. I’m not some kind of insider, with special access. I’ve interviewed one member of Congress at a MeetTheBloggers event, and I personally know one member of the State House of Representatives (a Republican, Josh Mandel, from when I was in college). Other than that, I’m just a regular working Joe, trying to make a living helping American soldiers be more effective and more safe, who got into blogging because I was alarmed at what I saw happening in our communities.
I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before my personal information is widely distributed on the net and I have to deal with wackos staking out my home. Awesome. But I’ve been converted into a true believer on the value of concealed carry now. So that’s a win for conservatives.
