Apalachicola Fort Site / Fort Mitchell

Apalachicola Fort Site / Fort Mitchell This site is located near Hogbottom in Fort Mitchell, interesting local history. The Apalachicola Fort Site is an archaeological site near Holy Trinity, Alabama, United States. Spain established a wattle and daub blockhouse here on the Chattahoochee River in 1690, in an attempt to maintain influence among the Lower Creek Indians. These tribes had rejected Spanish missionaries and were trading with the English. The fort was used for one year and then destroyed by the Spanish when they abandoned the site. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964. The site is currently threatened by a high water table caused by Walter F. George Lake, with damage from erosion and ground slumping at Apalachicola Fort Site.

Bush 2008 Gas Prices $ 4.11 per gallon (average)

Exactly, and Libertarians are very, far far away from the sleazy Republicans or corrupt Democrats: Looking at the Party’s candidates for President since Goldwater – Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, George Bush, Bob Dole, the other George Bush, John McCain, and now Mitt Romney – one is hard pressed to see any sign of a commitment to individual liberty in any of them. Ronald Reagan, as President, beside an American flag.Only once in all those years has a libertarian-leanin g candidate won the Republican nomination. That was Ronald Reagan in the 1980’s, a paradigm fusionist, who believed that “the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism”.(4 ) Yet Reagan faced enormous opposition, as much from within his own party as without, had to make numerous compromises, and left a record that a libertarian has to call “mixed” at best. To make things clearer. :D  (17 hrs ago | post #37)

Southern Democrats urge a return to party basics

Really, the only Republican president worth voting for since maybe Teddy Roosevelt was Ronal Reagan, and I didn't even vote for him at the time. As George Dance wrote: Looking at the Party’s candidates for President since Goldwater – Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, George Bush, Bob Dole, the other George Bush, John McCain, and now Mitt Romney – one is hard pressed to see any sign of a commitment to individual liberty in any of them.

Why should America avoid voting for Hillary Clinton as Pr...

Looking at Reagan from a Libertarian perspective, he is just about the ONLY Republican since maybe Teddy Roosevelt who was worth voting for, although I never did actually vote for Reagan. Here's what George Dance says about the value of Ronald Reagan: Looking at the Party’s candidates for President since Goldwater – Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, George Bush, Bob Dole, the other George Bush, John McCain, and now Mitt Romney – one is hard pressed to see any sign of a commitment to individual liberty in any of them.

Town Hall to Address Diversity - Thursday, May 28 6pm - 9pm

Yes, but America is a country for everyone, not just those you agree with. As I posted to my friend David earlierYou seem to simply ignore whatever I write just to put words in my my, to misrepresent what I think or what I state that I have done... not sure why you have that agenda, but it doesn't work. I state my case and my beliefs, and have no problem stating them. I have no need for you to speak for me, just as I never try to restate who and what you are, David... I leave that for you to state. Yet you insist on trying to portray me as some character you've dreamed up on your own, which is not valid. I would never try or even want to change the views of anybody... you came to yours as I did to mine, through hard living and thinking, and taking things the way you see them. As Bob Dylan says - "Time will tell, who has fell, and who's been left behind... when you go your way and I go mine." We all have a path, a road, and that's what America is all about, our freedom to be and think what we want to think. So, you're a Republican, I, we all, get that... whether I should congratulate you or pity you is myy own choice, though... as your choice to judge me is your own. See how that works in this here country called America, David? Yeah well, I voted Democrat all my life, ever since I hit voting age and Jimmy Carter was the man to vote for. I like Jimmy Carter, he's local, and a nice guy... maybe too nice to be President, where the more sleazy ones seem to come out on top, but still a real nice guy who writes some great poetry. In 2012 I switched my vote to Gary Johnson, a Libertarian, and whine all you want, if I voted Libertarian I reckon that kind of makes me one, or headed that direction, do you comprehend, David? And, yeah, so it really does go, and go... and go go go. :D  (18 hrs ago | post #6)

Why Do We Celebrate Memorial Day?

" It's unclear exactly where the holiday originated - Charleston, S.C., Waterloo, N.Y., Columbus, Ga. and other towns all claim to be the birthplace of the holiday..." Another Columbus Georgia original? RC Cola, Moon Pies and Memorial Day, can't get more American, or Columbus, than that. :D  (19 hrs ago | post #1)

Well, the best answers come from Gary Johnson, in his own words. Gary Johnson 2012 website to read and quote, not a second-hand account laced with out-of-context quotes, but what his campaign is actually saying about foreign policy. So that is exactly what we will quote here: Maintaining a strong national defense is the most basic of the federal government’s responsibilities. However, building schools, roads, and hospitals in other countries are not among those basic obligations. Yet that is exactly what we have been doing for much of the past 10 years. Given trillion-dollar deficits, America simply cannot afford to be engaged in foreign policy programs that are not clearly protecting U.S. interests. There is nation-building and rebuilding to be done right here at home. Our military should remain the most potent force for good on Earth. To do this, we should resort to military action as the last option and only as provided in the Constitution. #1 Bring the Troops Home – AMERICAN MILITARY ACTIVITIES IN AFGHANISTAN SHOULD END, our troops returned home, and the focus of our foreign policy reoriented toward the protection of U.S. citizens and interests. With Osama bin Laden now killed and after 10 years of fighting, U.S. forces should leave Afghanistan’s challenges to the Afghan people. Decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, American troops remain scattered throughout Europe. It is time to reevaluate these deployments. The U.S. must make better use of military alliances which allow greater sharing of the human and financial burdens at less cost of protecting national interests. #2 Lead by Example – AMERICA CAN ACHIEVE OUR FOREIGN POLICY GOALS without sacrificing American values. No criminal or terrorist suspect captured by the U.S. should be subject to physical or psychological torture. Individuals incarcerated unjustly by the U.S. should have the ability to seek compensation through the courts. Individuals detained by the U.S., whether it be at Guantanamo Bay or elsewhere, must be given due process via the courts or military tribunals, and must not be held indefinitely without regard to those fundamental processes. And, wait for it... so it goes. :D  (19 hrs ago | post #34)
