The "Facts of Life"

Welcome to

"The mind, like a parachute, only works when it's open." 

Welcome to my site. I’m attempting to present facts about the differences between Conservatism and Liberalism, believing anyone with any common sense, can and will open their minds to a true understanding of human nature. In addition, there are pages dedicated to the understanding of the founding fathers' documents, economic realities, current events and changes in American culture.

Why the site? I got informed and want to help educate before it’s too late. The basis of my conversion was a book written over 30 years ago by a Nobel Prize-winning economist, Milton Friedman. Although Conversion is a bad term, because I was just uninformed. That book called “Free to Choose” explains what made America different from all other nations and put us on top of the economic world. It shows how the principles of the Constitution, if followed, provide the greatest opportunity for all classes of individuals, to succeed based on their own hard work and talent.

I will finish the introduction with a quote from Milton Friedman that has been proven time after time, and yet the left side always wants America to move in the direction of Socialism. For people that do not know what the Free Market or Capitalism means, reading the book could really inform you as it did me.

So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear. That there is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.
Milton Friedman

The text is very difficult to read when you have such a dark colored background

Oh Sorry Gary, you meant the actual red color didn't you? Im also not sure why this page came out difficult to read. Others didn't on the site. Any other things

Once people become too dependent on the government, do you get the feeling mandatory military service is not far behind?

Sorry, I don't have it. But from what I understand you must give credit to him. Not sure

I am writing a book and would like to include Mr. Schoonover's letter in it but need permission, which I hope you/he will grant. Thank you very much.

Bill Schoonover wrote this letter April 3, 2013 and it still applies today.
Is there any wonder why both political parties are scared! Trump 2016.
