Independence Times


Hello everyone. My name is Matthew Gilliam, I am a forty-year-old southerner who has recently become disenfranchised by the media on both sides of the aisle. I have never written a blog of any sort much less on anything as politically charged as the topics I am hoping to cover here. However, with some research and the prolific use of the spell check function of Microsoft Word I am going to attempt to wade into murky waters of the gun debate and other socio-political topics.

Growing up in the south has a certain stigma when it comes to intelligence and race relations. Fortunately, I was raised by my mother who taught her children to see beyond the color of someone’s skin. Within the past couple of years, I have been very blessed to finish an A.A. in Biblical Ministry and Leadership. On a more personal note I am twice married once divorced forty-year-old Georgia boy with two kids. I am married to Angela, the love of my life, who tolerates my idiosyncrasies on a daily basis. With this blog I hope to bring you quality truthful stories from my distinctly southern perspective.
