The Cowboy Libertarian

Often we think of blogs as "Mommyblogs".  However, more and more, men are getting into it.  This blog was referred to me and I enjoy reading it's perspective.  I thought you might too.

It is: The Cowboy Libertarian. Google it, you won't be sorry.  Here is an excerpt.


THE COWBOY LIBERTARIAN’S CODE
 John Wayne once said…”A man’s got to have a code, a creed to live by no matter his job”.
Here’s mine…
  • Live by the golden rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
  • There are only two things you can count on in this world. The sun coming up in the morning and setting at night. Everything else is a crapshoot.
  • Citizenship is not a passive activity. Get informed and stay informed. And if you don’t vote, don’t complain.
  • Don’t go looking for trouble. You’ll get your share in life.
  • Right is right and wrong is wrong there are no shades of gray.
  • Never interfere with something that ain’t bothering you none.
  • Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly bear.
  • Never forget a kindness and repay it in kind.
  • If you don’t believe in something you will fall for anything.
  • Face your problems head-on. They won’t look half as bad if you do.
  • Wisdom comes from experience, most of it bad.
  • Help the less fortunate and defend those who can’t defend themselves. It is not an option but an obligation.
  • If you looking for a helping hand, start by looking at the end of your own arm.
  • Play the hand you were dealt. In life there is no second draw of the cards.
  • Life is not fair and it is not the responsibility of the government to make it so.
  • The responsibility of the government is to guarantee equal opportunity not equal outcomes.
  • We will all fall down at some point in our lives. It’s how you pick yourself up that counts.
  • Hollywood should be just as concerned about the “mental pollution” of our children as they are about the environmental pollution of the planet.
  • Parents are parents and kids are kids not friends and buddies.
  • Any government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you got.
  • When you’re wrong admit it and when you’re right stand by it.
  • Courts are not casinos or the lottery.
  • Life has risk. We can’t litigate, legislate or regulate our way out of every problem.
  • Not every problem is a crisis. But if you watch television you would think so.
  • We all have two ears and one mouth. Listen twice as much as you talk.
  • You can disagree with someone without being disagreeable.
  • Nothing is free. Somebody always pays.
  • If it sounds too good to be true, chances are it is.
  • The Ten Commandments are not the Ten Suggestions.
  • Sorry looks back. Worry looks around. Faith looks up.
