Recent developments within the Federal Government have created a concern for the preservation of this Republic as envisioned by the Founders. Comments made by the President inferring that the Constitution is “seriously flawed” and his actions promoting legislation which is questionable as to its constitutionality and the unrelenting attack on the free enterprise system which made America great, have contributed to my concerns. To “fundamentally transform” and reshape the Country would pose a direct assault upon the Constitution which our leaders have sworn to protect, defend and preserve.
These events have motivated me to speak out against policies that have proven to undermine America’s system of government and move us towards socialism.
My personal background and experience includes 48 years in the private sector manufacturing industry and as a small business owner with my wife. My business background encompassed working as an employee in automotive factories, rising through the management ranks and ultimately becoming President of a $250,000,000 business employing in excess of 1400 people. I pursued my formal education with the assistance of the GI bill and completed my college education while raising a family and working full time. I am hopeful that my life’s experience has been representative of the average American and qualifies me to have my voice and opinions heard. Today, I consider myself a Constitutional Conservative with no direct party affiliation.
My wife, Jayne, also a lifelong conservative, is a frequent contributor to this blog and particularly is interested in national social issues and Congressional legislation. Having worked in management for a Fortune 500 company and as a real estate salesman and as Director-Real Estate for a Fortune 500 Corporation and Economic Development Director for a Michigan city, for a total of 35 years, she also brings a wealth of talent and experience to her articles.
The purpose of Libertyssong blog is to analyze present-day political activism in light of the original Founders’ creation and original meaning of our U.S. Constitution. Liberal Progressives contend that the Constitution is out of date and does not represent modern-day America. Libertyssong contends that the values and principles enumerated in the Constitution are timeless and only misinterpretation and misapplication of those principles is what has changed over time. This blog is our attempt to portray the truth about how far our Government has strayed from the vision of the Founders and how dangerous this present course is for this Nation and the future of our children and grandchildren.
We hope you find the articles thought-provoking, educational, fearless, and above all factual, and we will continue to bring you important issues for you to consider.
