About All American Blogger

All American Blogger was launched in May 2007 by Duane Lester and Andrew Riley.

Our focus, initially, was politics. Fairly vague, we know. Over the years, we have written about tons of stuff, but one thing has remained the focus through them all. Above all, liberty.

Since then, we have expanded to cover topics other than politics.

Who’s In Charge Around Here?

Duane Lester is the Co-Founder and Politics Editor. Duane is the winner of the first Andrew Breitbart Blogger Award and former Editor-in-Chief of Liberty News. Duane also blogs at The Missouri Torch.

Andrew Riley is the Co-Founder, Webmaster and Tech Editor.

Why the name “All American Blogger”?

“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all.”

-Teddy Roosevelt

We don’t care where you came from.

We don’t care what color your skin is.

Age, sex, creed…whatever.

Do you cherish freedom, liberty and the ideals that made America great?  Do you understand that America is a special place in the world?  Do you understand “if we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth?”

If so, you’re an All American in our book.  Welcome.
