The Good American Post — New “On The Roof!”

It’s always encouraging to see people standing up for our inalienable right to liberty (and life and the pursuit of happiness too, of course), and it was with great pleasure Liberty on the Rocks (Red Rocks) welcomed Tisha Casida and Steve Thompson of The Good American Post at our August 16th meetup.

This on-line and print new media venture is a great source for liberty-related political news and views, as well as being a community resource for other life and pursuit of happiness topics, featuring works on arts, cultural events, and lifestyle.

Be sure to check out The Good American Post online, and look for their free print editions at select liberty events!

Good American Post

The Good American Post

Thanks to our new friends at The Good American Post for linking to us this morning and promoting our cause for liberty! I was able to meet their Chief Executive Officer and Publisher Tisha Casida and Operations Manager Steve Thompson at Liberty On The Rocks Red Rocks this past Monday, where we hosted featured guest Pete Coors.

The mission of The Good American Post is to promote freedom as well as to help support small business by providing the tools necessary for interested parties to establish their own local news source, while simultaneously creating a profit. The publication, which is available both online and in print, provides communities access to local and national news, with a focus on promoting non-biased information on governance, the economy and sustainability. Anyone interested in working with the Good American Post to publish their own local newspaper can find their contact information here. Tisha from the GAP will be joining the Liberty Bus for their 2 week tour across the United States, which will end in Washington D.C. in time for the big 9/12 Rally on the steps of the capitol.

It is so rare to see the liberty viewpoint addressed in the mainstream media, so it is up to us to establish our own. A great quote by Mahatma Gandhi encourages us to, “Be the change [we] want to see in the world”. We cannot emulate the believers of big government who simply wait for them to get it right. If the media won’t cover our stories and viewpoints on freedom, we must cover them ourselves.  This is why I very much support what this group is doing.

That being said, just because an individual decides to start one of these publications (or any other for that matter) under the banner of “freedom” or “liberty” does not mean all aspects of it will be perfect. With different individuals come different perspectives. It’s amazing how many different opinions I have heard from people in the “liberty movement” on the same topic. We simply cannot assume everyone in the business of writing or blogging for “freedom” is going to be correct on every issue. And yes, I do believe aside from personal opinions (i.e. I like chocolate better than vanilla) that fact is fact and there is no gray area. There are, for example, aspects of The Good American Post that I would take issue with, namely their focus on sustainable food systems and keeping dollars local. I personally believe that we need to trade, trade, trade! with all of the world, rather than focus on keeping our dollars within our communities (that gives us a much larger population to trade with!). However, as I briefly read through their website I was given the impression that they would also be open to discussing this issue and others through the lens of opposing viewpoints. I do hope that is the case, as I believe discussion is vital to our success. I myself do not profess to know everything, and according to her bio, neither does Tisha of the GAP. That is the first step to even getting to the point of having a dialogue!

For me, almost nothing is more important than education and information gathering, especially for those who write on the topic of freedom or plan to discuss its merits with anyone, let alone the news media. If we seek to enlighten others with the philosophy of liberty (a very worthy endeavor), we must first begin with fully enlightening ourselves.

Balance the Budget Rally Aug. 21

Join voices with others seeking to restore fiscal sanity and attend the rally this Saturday, noon to 2:00 pm at Denver City Park, for a FEDERAL Balanced Budget Amendment. Seriously, federal spending is so out of control, the numbers are so huge, the House will not publish a budget this (election) year!

Video link-up allows Newt Gingrich, Gov. Rick Perry (TX), and rising star Representative Jason Chaffetz (UT) to speak along with local leaders such as Congressman Mike Coffman, Bob Beauprez, Amy Oliver, Jeff Crank, Spencer Swalm, and college radio host/activist Jimmy Sengenberger.  Tickets start at just $5.00 and are available on-line.

Discussing Economic Myths in Denver!

Justin Longo of the Independence Institute and graduate of George Mason University’s economics program, will be joining us this Wednesday to discuss some of the great economic fallacies of our time, which have led to some of the worst public policies enacted by our elected officials.

This will be a great opportunity to learn (or share ideas on what you already know) some basic economic principles that you can put to use when discussing issues such as inflation or the stimulus package with your friends and family.

Get answers to the economic questions you’ve always had, or share your thoughts with the group! The purpose of the discussion is to provide an opportunity for guests to share ideas, learn from one another and really put some thought into the consequences of government manipulation of our economy. We hope you can join us!
