Political Pundit or Just Reminiscing?

Is ranting on a blog going to become the bread & butter of my life? The daily interest in creating something has all-a-sudden reawakened to write and keep daily happenings on paper. I’ve taken the first uncertain step in my life and moved 45 miles away from my old hometown. This was a giant leap and it’s turns out, there’s a great existence outside of Cedar City, Utah. I’ve got big plans in the making. I’ve been a car salesman for a month now and I’m getting ready to smack the turf. Oh, and this town, St. George, has an abundance of beautiful-educated women.

I’m tempted to get political and become a pundit. They talk about developing a niche blog to build a community but I’m not so savvy on that idea? I don’t want this work to be canned and was thinking of doing exactly the opposite! Keeping it canned is what killed my creativity before. I don’t want to be afraid of stepping on toes and earning a few enemies.

Blogging appeals to me because I love writing. My first blog back in 2003 was a MovableType installation. WordPress is simpler without so many nuts and bolts. I miss the complexities of MT for sentimental reasons when blogging was such a new concept and Facebook hadn’t seen the light-of-day.

Oh how the world has changed in ten years, and the web as  become the new social media reality. Now we are looking at revolutions in the Middle East sparked by Twitter. We can blog about corruption in government and pig-like politicians. We can venture out as citizen journalists, as well as pundits. Isn’t that sweet!

Drastic Life Changes – Work in Progress


We live in a free market capitalist society and I went to college with all the Marxists, Socialists and Commies! Four years ago, I should have went into Business & Marketing instead of Sociology. It goes to explain why I was once very liberal in my politics and it wasn’t until the last few years that I’ve began to see the light and head over to the right!

My politics have shifted, totally. About eleven months ago I became a full-fledged supporter of Ron Paul, and his son Rand Paul, who are both Tea-Party congressmen. I’ve discovered myself to be a deep Libertarian. I believe in personal liberty and think that sovereign power should reside within the heart of every human being, and not in the power-hungry US Federal Government. We as American Citizens put too much blind faith in government and in the process of doing that, we as citizens have started to forfeit our personal liberties, sovereignty and responsibility to the government. People are beginning to think that it’s the government’s duty to pamper us, and take care of us. What the heck?

I’m not wanting to wax to political on here, because that’s not why I created this blog. I’ve created this blog because of my new-found hero, Tim Ferris, who operates the Four Four Blog and is a New York Best Seller, and writer. He’s becoming my muse this very moment when I’ve been needing something like this for a very long time. I feel like I’ve crawled out of a cacoon in recent weeks. This guy has become an example of human freedom, and what a person can achieve when they believe in themselves and have a required confidence to act and MOVE.

So, that’s what this blog is about. Let me tell you what I am about – I love people and wish to share my life experiences. For six years now, I’ve been a professional tour guide, taking people in the wilderness, into the Grand Canyon and all over the Southwest. I’ve spent my waking hours learning the art of photography and I’m constantly driven by the beauty of the Earth.

So this blog is apart of my newfound freedom. It’s what Tim Ferris calls Experiments in Lifestyle Design. It’s what I call discovering my own innate sovereignty and what it means to be human.
