New Look, New Direction… Sorta

March 29, 2016 at 1:31 pm

My post frequency is abysmal.  I don’t have a lot of free time, and when I do, depressing myself about politics isn’t high on the list of I want to spend it on.  And politics is depressing.  That said, I don’t want to abandon the site because I believe writing is important.  So I’ll be changing things up a bit.  While there will still be the occasional political post, there will be other random subjects as well.  Essentially whatever I feel like writing about and think someone might care to read or that I think someone might find helpful.  In the spirit of newness, the site has a new look.  I hope you like it.

Consider Liberty Now Supports SSL

March 3, 2015 at 5:32 pm

With privacy rights being trampled by the government daily, I’ve been on a bit of a mission to secure my digital existence as much as possible against those who would seek to violate my privacy.  As a result, I’ve implemented SSL on ConsiderLiberty.com.  What does this mean?  Basically when you visit the site using the secure URL – https://considerliberty.com your connection with the site will be encrypted; your interactions with the site will be obscured from prying eyes.  This is typically a measure reserved for sites that manage financial transactions, or other sensitive information.  Is it really necessary for a lowly blog?  Probably not.  But it’s one more measure against an overly intrusive government and will make your time here a little more secure.  Thanks for stopping by! P.S. Check back soon for a new piece investigating how Edward Snowden, Net Neutrality and ISIS may be connected.

Consider Liberty is Now Available on Kindle!

January 22, 2014 at 3:23 pm

I received an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday.  It’s a wonderful update for my old Kindle Keyboard.  While I was busy loading it up with free books from Mises.org I stumbled across an option to subscribe to Mises Daily articles on my Kindle.  The cost is $.99 per month, but each day the new articles are delivered wirelessly and are ready for me whenever I choose to read them.  I’ve found this to be immensely convenient and as a result I’ve read the Mises Daily articles much more regularly since this discovery. As it turns out, anyone can submit a blog to Kindle.  So I submitted Consider Liberty.  If you happen to be interested in reading my articles on your Kindle, go ahead and subscribe! For the sake of full disclosure, I do earn a percentage (30% I believe) from the $.99 subscription fee.  I’d rather offer this for free, but I can’t as Amazon dictates the $.99 fee.

I’m really not sure what took so long for me to get around to addressing this… When I started this site I had lazily thrown “© Consider Liberty – All Rights Reserved” in the footer of the site and never gave it another thought.  Well, that’s not so much in keeping with the freedom and ideas I want to be promoting here.
