CEDAR HILL, MO (KTVI) – As we recognize those who fought for our country on this 70th anniversary of D-Day, a Jefferson County community is mourning the loss of a young soldier.  Private First Class Matt Walker, who served in the 101st Airborne Division, was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan.

His best friend, Daniel Nixon, says Walker never had a doubt he wanted to be a soldier, just like his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him: “He had planned ever since he was a little kid.

On the Mark

“Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life.”
― Bob Marley

We are coming up on another election cycle. This one will be the first one in a while that does not have Ron Paul somehow involved in a race someplace. Ron Paul had an ideology and message the last time he ran for the nomination for president that many young people found very attractive. Ron Paul seemed to tap into some sort of energy source when he ran, but he is now out of the running and I don’t see anyone on the horizon that comes close to supporting the ideas of the Classical Liberals as Dr. Paul did.

As I write this, millions of people throughout the world are in opposition to the dehumanizing, oppressive, violent, and destructive essence of the governmental systems we see around the world. The fascist…
