LOTR Nashville hosts the MHD crew

Meet Jason Talley and Pete Eyre of the Motorhome Diaries and learn about their recent adventures.

The Motorhome Diaries is the story of two friends who took to the road in April 2009 to search for freedom in America. Along the way, MARV (the Mobile Authority Resistance Vehicle), Jason and Pete meet individuals and groups from diverse backgrounds and viewpoints at college campuses, homes, businesses and organizations that are united by one thing: increasing individual freedom and responsibility and decreasing the scope of government.

**Also if you have an interest in being the point person for this meetup please contact MHD at** and read this post about point people

Follow-up to Prop 8 post

I wrote a post a while back entitled “Is proposition 8 right or wrong?“.  I got a few comments on it where some people disagreed with me on my assertion.  One of these commenters was making the case that Natural Law Theory would not grant homosexuality as an unalienable right because human beings were born with a purpose.  This purpose is procreation. What I wonder is, does that mean a man and woman shouldn’t get married if they don’t want to have children or are unable to have children?  Should people be forced to have children if they don’t desire to?

What seems to be the biggest disagreement between us, is whether gays have a right to get married.  This commenter states, “I think we lose ground when we allow new rights to be fabricated which undermine the long standing traditions of western civilization.”  Here is my point: the longstanding tradition of America is freedom.  Having the right to proclaim your love to someone else is your right because you are not hurting anyone else in the process.   As I stated in my last post, everything that people do should be judged on whether or not they are taking away someone else’s rights by doing something.  What and who’s rights are gay men and women taking away by declaring their love for each other in front of their friends and family?  No one’s, that’s who.

Remember, we are all granted the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  There is no clause in there that adds “so long as you are procreating while doing so”.  We are all granted these things, period.  Meaning, yes, they are rights.  But only if you believe in freedom.

More on Obamacare

It really isn’t any surprise that a politician, or the populace, would encourage doing something that has been a proven failure.  Take government run healthcare for example.  Not only can you find many examples of its failure by looking at either Britain or Canada, but you can also see these examples in the United States! The Massachusetts plan that was supported by Governor Mitt Romney has been an utter failure.  While they tried to force everyone to have health insurance, there are still 200,000 uninsured about three years later, and many of those that now are insured are done so at taxpayer expense.  Costs have risen along with wait times to see a doctor.  No surprise there.  Check out a great site called Patient Power Now to read more about how detrimental it will be to our country if we went with the public option to health care.

In addition to Massachusetts, Oregon is also a great example of what our future will hold if we pass government run healthcare.  Linda Gorman, Health Care Policy Center Director at the Independence Institute in Colorado, states, “…the Oregon Health Plan is the first government health care program anywhere in the world that has drawn up a formal procedure for rationing.” She goes on to explain something all of us should already know – when the choices are dictated by politicians, the money will be spent on what is most politically popular, not what is right.  Honestly, how could we not see this coming?  Here is a great video by the Independence Institute entitled Health Reform, that will give you a better idea of how the system in Oregon works, and how it could soon be coming to a state near you!
