About noxforchristmas

Ron Paul rocks!!!!! Anywho, I’d thought that this was set up, but I guess it isn’t. We’re a couple hard-working folks that have struggled to build a life together and raise a son in an America that seems determined to fall into twilight. We started it out as a Christmas blog, but it has evolved into a pro Ron Paul site. I’m writing under the pseudonym of “Duncan McShame,” so that I can preserve the privacy that I value so much. I’m very gratified that some folks have cited me, and I hope to return the favor in the near future. While I do most of the writing, my wife has thought of many of the titles and several of the topics. She’s amazing at research, and I keep hoping that we will both grow together as we work on this together. She has written at least three of these posts.

When I’m at work, quite often there is a song going through my head. And very likely that song is Merle Haggard‘s, “Are the Good Times Really Over.” That song influenced me a lot as a child, and now, as an adult who hopes to build a better life for his son, I find the song resonates even more with me now, then it did then. So when you read my rants and watch the videos that I site (yeah, sorry….I don’t make any of them……I site them in the hopes that I can inspire others in their quest for the truth….) remember these words that I’ll quote/paraphrase….

Is the best of the free life behind us now?

Are the good times really over for good?

And I hope that the clarion call rolls through this belabored nation:

Stop rolling down hill like a snowball headed for……well….you know the rest…….

Yeah….I’m updating this about page…..when I was younger, I felt that if there was ever a revolution, I would be a leader in it. Well….whether through God’s will, or through my cowardice…..I largely sit on the sidelines, and wonder what’s wrong with the world….and what’s wrong with me….

I played football in high-school. You wouldn’t believe it if you saw me. But I played, because I was desperately in love with this girl….(I so wish I’d met my wife then…..). I was no good, but I’d play my guts out. I’d give it every bit of my heart and soul. I felt as though I were fighting the darkness of the world. I felt as though I were making some difference. One night, I came home after an especially rough game, and saw this video:

There’s so much in this video that has haunted me for the last twenty-five years. I could go on and on about it….but maybe I’ll just save it for a post…..

The most important thing to remember about Christmas is Jesus’s birthday.
