I have taken Liberty’s Spirit in a new direction. My old blog of this name was shut down. Stay with me and we are going to review and revamp our old ideas and set a new path. But certain realities hold true….
I am neither right nor left. Republican nor Democrat. I am simply an American, beholden to the US Constitution and all that she stands for. I do not believe in gray areas when it comes to our liberty.
This blog is also pro-Israel. Antisemitism, whether dressed up as anti-Israel rhetoric or as Jew-hatred-filled-dog-whistles will not be tolerated, anymore than racism, misogyny or any other form of ignorance.

“Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it. While it lies there, it needs no constitution, no law, no court to save it.” Learned Hand
