At long last...

Although it has been eight months since I planned to start American Patriot, it seemed I would never actually get around to posting on my own blog due to the time commitment I perceived as necessary. Well, finally here it is.

The main focus of this blog will be the analysis and discussion of current national and international news items. It is also my sincere hope that there will occasionally be vigorous discussions of philosophical differences between classical and progressive liberalism and their consistency with our constitutional principles. All that I ask is for all participants to be intellectually honest. As I pledge not to post 'allegations' that cannot be supported, I would like all comments to be substantive in nature as well. My challenge to all is to take a classical approach to thinking by weighing issues in the light of empirical evidence, balanced with a healthy dose of logic and historical perspective. Thank you in advance for your participation in this blog.
