Rational Nation USA
Liberty -vs- Tyranny
Rational Nation has recently come under vicious attack. Because of the magnitude and viscous nature of the attacks this site has been forced to resort to comment moderation, a practice that heretofore I have been adamantly opposed to.
It has been difficult to determine the individual most likely responsible for these attacks because of 1) my trusting nature, and 2) my relative lack of computer savvy. However, following a weekend of investigative work and logical analysis of the evidence it appears to have been a "inside job", a attack plan designed to discredit me and destroy my integrity for the simple and only reason I dared to visit and comment on liberal blogs. In other words I "strayed off the rightist plantation" and therefore must be punished.
While I initially believed the individual harassing and stalking me was a left wing blogger (and it may be so) the evidence overwhelming points otherwise. So, I consider this a lesson hard learned. I shall never again grant posting or administrative authorization to anyone I DO NOT PERSONALLY KNOW. I suggest all bloggers, whether they be right or left leaning to exercise caution as well.
As unfortunate and difficult as it may be be for me to acknowledge this fact I now believe it true, just as Ayn Rand and Professor Leonard Piekoff said, the conservative movement has grown anti liberty, anti free speech, and are as grave a danger to this nation as the uber left is.
There is a reason I self identified as a independent conservative and classical liberal. You all now know why. Especially the conservatives and fundies.
While I had intended to post material I believed of great importance the attack on my site has left me just a bit unnerved. Therefore I shall simply wish all, especially the liberty minded liberals, libertarians, and true conservatives a good evening. I'll be back soon. VERY SOON. I cannot and will not be intimidated by anyone. Whether they be from the extreme left or the extreme right. Both are a grave danger to our freedom and individual liberties and I shall stand firm against all forms of tyranny.
I should thank you, whoever you are for giving me greater impetus to fight even harder in the cause of liberty. Even if it means I'll be fighting against you.
