Earlier this summer I asked for your understanding while I coached my son's baseball team. The task, though enjoyable and fulfilling, didn't allow sufficient time to write regular columns with the clarity and professionalism I hope to present. I will again beg your indulgence. I will be going on hiatus due to some private issues. There is no timeframe for my return. It could be a few days, weeks, or even a few months. The issue has nothing to do with a family member's health, or my own for that matter. But it does demand my undivided attention. I ask your patience and your prayers during this time.

My goal is to relay my belief in the people of this great nation. A belief in our ability to overcome obstacles and emerge stronger and more prosperous than before. A belief that the individual, working toward his own goals, is vastly superior to any program, handout, or "incentive" government can devise. With determination, individual effort, courage, morality, and--above all--faith in our Sovereign Lord, we can secure the Blessings of Liberty for our selves and our future generations.
On the ensuing pages you will find editorial and commentary covering a wide range of subjects and events. I hope that you find these thoughts presented in an entertaining and understandable manner. If they make you think so much the better! The works contained herein are offered without apology. If you are offended by the promotion of liberty over the intrusive power of government, or by exercising common sense and logic over brainless propaganda and liberal sentiment you are likely in the wrong place. However, I hope you will stay, for I am firmly convinced that anyone assessing the concepts of Conservatism with an open mind will see and adopt the timeless values it contains.
Thanks for visiting!
Bill Randall views are constitutionally sound and his manner promotes the aggressive promotion of liberty over the nanny state. In short, he's the kind of man we need in D.C.

About the Name:
therightslant.com was chosen to reflect my views on life, liberty, government, politics, and the world in general. The previous name, eatananimal.com, didn't accurately reflect the variety of topics I cover on these pages. The black and white color theme might seem dull to some visitors. But the choice is significant in light of the site's purpose. You'll note there is no gray to be found on these pages (except for the picture of me in a gray suit). Every position, opinion, statistic, and fact is presented without the so-called gray areas of modern debate. The only exception to the black and white theme are the various links to pages or files. Neither black nor white shows well on itself, so a third color was needed to differentiate between visited and unvisited links. I choose green for this purpose in tribute to therightslant.com's forerunner... eatananimal.com.
An old Indian word meaning "poor hunter".
