Since Dec 18, 1998
I discovered FreeRepublic by following a few links from the DrudgeReport. FR is a world of kindred conservative spirits. The opportunity to engage in political activism, particularly in support of 2nd amendment rights, is a very important aspect of participation in the FR community. Our family relocated to Idaho in Dec 2000 from San Diego, CA. We left the state where all of us were born and raised. The crowding, high cost of living and rabid anti-gun campaign of the Sacramento socialists have finally offset the lure of perpetually pleasant weather.
My son completed his service as a Corporal in the Marine Corps. His service in Kuwait and Iraq was rewarded with veterans benefits that assisted earning a BS in Business Administration. He built a 60 person real estate business in San Diego by age 24. The economic downturn in housing killed the San Diego real estate market. As of February 2008, my son has relocated to Pocatello, Idaho. He is building a new real estate firm and working on his MBA. It is great to have the whole family back in closer proximity.
