Just some perspective. When crisis hits, who in our communities can we rely on? Turns out the same ones who favored us in chains to the state the last two years haven’t changed their minds and prefer no checks on the abuses. So to preserve us from thinking the worst of them, we resort to lesser explanations of problems “out there.”…

The secret of good people is that they don’t need permission to have joy nor do they depend on kings and senators to bring it to them. Milk and honey always abounds for those who see it. Good people want to make it easier for people to see it. The power in the bonds between good friends is the envy of kings.
Unprincipled people are as fickle as animals. They follow their appetites wherever they lead. They will buckle under any pressure. They will surrender to loud voices just to turn down the volume. They will eat bad food because it’s easy to get. And they will throw their energy and resources behind popular trends…
What did they the progressive, globalist govt teach us about itself with its behavior during Covid: 1) That it believes itself the final word on the hard sciences. 2) That children belong to them. 3) That parents who dislike (2) are terrorists. 4) Anyone who disagrees with the spokespeople are also terrorists who deserved to be censored and jobless. 5) That an excuse like Covid is enough to destabilize our own military, destabilize elections, cohort with social media companies to drive messaging and call truth “misinformation,” and print free money. Shall I go on? Never vote for someone who has shown themselves so incompetent in a crisis that they destroy your life and liberty. The first sign of competence is protecting life and liberty.
Gunphobics do not want you fighting for those values with your voice, your conscience, your writing, or with arms. Gunphobics don’t have those values. They are fighting for something else.
Self defense is the first right of nature. Not just to stop the average criminal, but all possible acts of violence upon the innocent. This includes evil in the govt as well as evil invaders. The number of scenarios self-defense may be required is immeasurable. When anyone hinders this, whether neighbor or government, it is immoral. No excuse can make it moral. No bad actor can cancel the right. No manufactured fear from a noisy populace is sufficient. No argument for erasing self defense is the laughable name of “safety” is remotely credible…
Back Porch with Dale and Jonalyn
Dale Fincher’s favorite word is freedom. It’s a commitment that got him kicked out of a fundamentalist Christian college for standing up to spiritual abuse. He went on to earn two Masters degrees in theater and philosophy of religion (Biola University). His deepest loyalty remains to understanding and following the teacher, Jesus.In his 20’s, Dale joined the itinerate team of Ravi Zacharias, and soon began to study systemic evil (spiritual abuse) and how it seduces organizations, families, politics and churches across America. From his early 30’s to mid-40’s Dale pastored Christians through Soulation, a non-profit he and his wife founded helping Christians recover from spiritual abuse. Zondervan published his first two books, Living with Questions and Coffeeshop Conversations. Dale’s wife, Jonalyn, traveled and pastored with him as they criss-crossed North America, often their young son in tow. Now Dale works in finance and fathers his two boys. He spends afternoons educating them in Exeter, New Hampshire where he and Jonalyn make their home. Between teaching Scripture, Geometry and Grammar, Dale posts daily memes celebrating freedom and guiding others back to Jesus’ path of reality. Follow him @voiceofthe2nd on Instagram. Dale’s favorite days hold bass fishing, sailing, and home educating. His best evenings close with a thoughtful conversation on the back porch with Jonalyn. Listen to their faith-filled political conversations at their podcast Back Porch Conversations.
