"In the following pages I offer nothing more than simple facts, plain arguments, and common sense; and have no other preliminaries to settle with the reader, than that he will divest himself of prejudice and prepossession, and suffer his reason and his feelings to determine for themselves; that he will put on rather than off, the true character of a man, and generously enlarge his views beyond the present day." - Thomas Paine, Common Sense


Hi! I'm Derek. My site dedicated to history, politics, and current events. Despite the name of this site and the quote on the main page, SFPA is not entirely dedicated to Thomas Paine, or his ideas, or his style. But I do seek the same goal that Paine did: to spread the word about liberty with passion and honesty. Paine wrote his works at one of the most critical times in history, inspiring a whole generation to recognize and strive for freedom against an oppressive government. Now, I don't claim to know any more than anyone else. I don't seek to mislead anyone, and everything I write is to the best of my knowledge. If what I've written on this site can get just one person to re-think the "necessity" of being governed by someone else, then it has all been worth it.

Feel free to contact me with questions/feedback/whatever at simplefacts.plainarguments@gmail.com.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Seems like good thinking on here. I'm wondering why there's no registration link.
