Thanks To Those Who Genuinely Fight For American Freedom & Liberty!

I’d like to offer my sincere gratitude for the many generations of freedom fighters who have helped make the United States a unique beacon of hope, prosperity, and human dignity.

Many have selflessly served and thousands have died to allow the torch of freedom to be passed on to future generations.

Just as it is vital for us to actively address our personal health and not take it for granted, we must also work to support and defend the drivers of freedom and liberty in our nation.

The Price of Freedom

Freedom is not free. It requires ongoing vigilance, tenacious defense, and accountability of governmental leaders to keep it alive and strong.

Regarding health and wellness, a legitimate and effective health care system must be focused on unleashing and maximizing human potential while helping to protect and empower the individual against disease and injury.

Quality and cost effective care services (such as cash-based direct access physical therapy) identify individual needs, educate the consumer, and provide appropriate tools and innovation.

Patient-Focused Health Care

The individual is optimally empowered to be independent. This consumer-driven approach fosters value as well as freedom and dignity of the individual.

Similarly, a healthy republican government also genuinely promotes and fosters independence (not dependence and victimization). Leadership ultimately makes the difference between free or enslaved societal outcomes.

While many talk about freedom, actions speak louder than words.

Overdosing Epidemic

In this light, the sad reality is overdosing of legal and prescribed drugs has become the number one cause of injury-related death in the United States.

This epidemic is one of our greatest modern day threats to freedom, and is a product of an exclusive establishment which seeks to promote dependence over independence for selfish political and personal gain.

For many years pharmaceutical lobbyists (as well as other lobbyists and other countries) have pulled the strings of the Washington puppet establishment. This self-serving club (involving many unethical politicians both Democrat and Republican) has progressively sold out and over-regulated our country.

The taxing results have been ongoing threats to individual life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

A Growing Cancer Destroying Freedom

Regarding threats to freedom, our ever growing and intrusive governmental is a cancer which will eventually kill the host nation if not contained.

Adherence to the Constitution is the key to restoring governmental and societal health. All veterans have taken an oath to defend it against both foreign & domestic enemies. Every generation of America also has the right and responsibility to defend it. This cannot be understated!

The United States without strict adherence to the Constitution will no longer be a free republic. Our citizens must hold our leaders to higher standards with the expectation and demands of integrity, service before self, and excellence.

It’s completely unacceptable that our political leadership do not appropriately support and defend those in uniform, giving them every advantage possible to succeed in their challenging, dangerous, and often gruesome duties. To ignore their needs for political and personal gain is, in my view, an insidious betrayal and a form of treason.

Debt & Unemployment

There are many additional threats to freedom which must be effectively addressed. Fear, division and cultural rot presently characterize much of America. We have an almost 20 trillion dollar deficit with more people not working (over 93 million) than working.

America is sick and it will require courageous moral leadership, hard work, and sacrifice to make the nation great again. As always, everything rises and falls based on leadership.

In spite of challenges, I’m convinced freedom fighters will continue to serve, sacrifice, and do the best they can under these difficult circumstances. Dedicated first responders and veterans from all branches of service, especially those who have been in harm’s way, have often endured mental and physical injury. Their sacrifices continue to be necessary and vital as many seek to destroy America and our way of life.

In conclusion, consider what you can do to honor and support veterans and others who communicate and exemplify genuine patriotism, liberty, dignity, and independence.

Thank you freedom fighters for your courage & love of country! God bless you,  and God bless America!
