Great! Well, if you ever desire to link up with other Austrians and libertarians here, I know quite a few. I'm happy to say that this network is expanding.
Best wishes,
Dick

Hey Eric,
Great! Some of my best friends are Citadel grads. Ha! Are you originally from Virginia? What is your particular apecialty at Fort Lee? I must say that it is great to know of yet another fan of Austrian economics and libertarian ideas in this area. We are popping up everytwhere. I know that Ron Paul's run for President has been a recent catalyst for young people to wake up. I've been at this stuff for a rather long time. Best wishes, Dick

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the reply. I also like the LRC blog and the mises.org site. I'd love to meet you one of these days. I presume you are in the military? I graduated from the Virginia Military Institute. My business is Living History Associates, Ltd. Best wishes, Dick Cheatham

Dick, I haven't seen a whole lot of activity in this group since I joined. I think the downside is that the Austrian-libertarian community has so many other online communities.

Does anyone ever come in here? I see members listed. I just don't see many comments.

Best wishes,
