Welcome to Vox Libertas

Whether you read it as "The Voice of Freedom" or "Cry Freedom", Vox Libertas is my new blog dedicated to the issue of protecting our Republic and the freedom and principles upon which it is based.

The road to this blog started back in September when the Military Commissions Act was passed, restricting the right of habeas corpus on the same day that I found out my job was one of the many being "downsized". As I reflected on the two events, I realized that I was far more concerned about habeas corpus than my own career, which made me rethink a lot of things about my life, politics, activism and the state of our Republic. Since then, I've been doing a lot of reading, researching and networking, all with eye towards doing something to rolling back some of the damage that has been done to our country and its principles.

I hope that you will join me here, commenting and contributing. Even more, I hope you'll take some sort of action. Register to vote, if you haven't. Get your friends and family to register. Support candidates. Write your senators and representatives. Attend public hearings and town meetings. Study history, our Constitution and the daily news. Talk with friends and family.
