I live in Texas but my heart and home are in the Ozarks. I am an engineer by trade, small business owner by necessity.

I’ve been all the way around the world more than a few times and worked in 32 countries. Travel is wonderful, it expands your thoughts and experiences. I still get itchy feet to hit the road again. The best part of going away though is coming home.

Good men I have met from all walks of life no matter where you go all want pretty much the same things. To live peacefully, to be accomplished at their work, to make a good life for their family and they believe in God or some higher being and that we did not get here by accident.

We come into this world naked, afraid and with nothing. We leave behind a short memory and a reputation. Our treasures on earth are just vapor; so says Solomon.

I claim to be an arch conservative but I have a little bit of libertarian streak in me. I leave other people alone and I expect them to do the same with me. I will be there in a minute to do all I can to help someone in need. I won’t start a fight and never have but I’ll do all I can to give much more than I get if anyone ever assails me and more than that if anyone ever lays a hand on one of my family.

I love this nation and the Constitution and the Ideals we once stood for but hate this government. What passes for campaign contributions here are really just bribes and would be a criminal violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act if it were done over seas.
