This is the home of themcglynn.com. We hope to encourage and assist those seeking to challenge the prevailing disorder in American political life. Although this site does serve a number of purposes, some of which are to entertain, its chief purpose is to uplift and further the avowedly democratic challenge to the current tyranny which has taken root in the United States of America. We strongly believe, as Thomas Jefferson knew so well, that the encouragement of open debate is the true guarantor of Democracy. We further believe that in order to regain and secure our rights as citizens of the United States we are obligated to both inform ourselves and dissent when neccessary. In order to recover what is truly great about this country and its peoples we must now dissent and openly disavow the reckless and willfull violation of the lives of so many in Iraq, Afghanistan and throughout the middle east.
