New Kid on the Blog
January 12, 2012 - Rick Burdt
Hello and welcome to my blog. For the past couple of years I have enjoyed reading the blogs found on this site and wondered why a column didn’t exist for the conservatives among us. I contacted the Enterprise and found that the reason is simply because there was currently nobody writing one, so I have decided to give it a try.
First, a little about myself; I was born and raised in the Cooperstown area of central New York. Joined the military at the age of eighteen and spent the majority of my enlistment in Europe. After completing my enlistment, I settled in Saranac Lake where I currently own a home and am raising my family.
I am definitely a conservative and a registered Republican. I believe in the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights and believe them to be as relevant today as they were when they were written. These documents and the laws written within them were created to protect our rights, not our feelings. They were also created to provide opportunity, not eligibility.
I am not an environmentalist but do not believe in waste and I do not believe in the theory of global warming. If you believe that mankind has made such a detrimental impact on our planet that the events portrayed in the movie “The Day After Tomorrow” could actually happen, then may the force be with you.
These are just a few of my opinions and I look forward to sharing more of them with the readers of these columns. I encourage responses, negative or positive, and look forward to reading them and even learning from them. My goal is to look at certain topics from a different point of view but I will always try to back up my information with reputable sources.
I completed grammar school a long time ago and don’t feel the need to call people I am either threatened by or don’t agree with names. That isn’t to say that I won’t get a subtle (left) jab in from time to time.
I want to thank the Enterprise for giving me this opportunity to express my thoughts and ideas and look forward to sharing them with the readers.
