Hey! Welcome to Freedom Cocktail.
Everyone here enjoys the occasional adult beverage. By “occasional” we sometimes mean nightly. A good bourbon, scotch, vodka, whiskey blend, glass of wine or an ice cold beer are among the favorites. When Eric and Alan first decided to create a political blog site, they kicked around several ideas. They eventually landed on the idea of a virtual bar. Both of them had commented about having some of the best political conversations, often with total strangers, while enjoying a drink. Thus the metaphor of a bar lent itself to the idea of spurring discussion. Anyone and everyone is invited to sit down, drink in hand, and chat with one of our bartenders.
Every bar has a look and feel — a theme. We don’t waste time with useless bric-a-brac, though. Our servers aren’t going to be sporting pieces of flair. What you will notice is our focus is on freedom, liberty and a love of the Constitution as originally conceived by our Founding Fathers.
You are free to disagree or to add a new wrinkle to anything here. All we ask is for you to be respectful. Be passionate, but be mindful of facts and focus. We will be watching for those who like to shift the subject, ignore the facts or resort to name-calling. Those are good ways to be escorted off the premises. A spirited debate is good for the soul, but mindless screaming accomplishes nothing.
Enjoy your time here and if you had a good time, bring a friend next time. The only goal here is to engage in the conversation and introduce the topics. It’s up to everyone else to keep the communication flowing.
