About Ben Gaul

A thinking man and a social philosopher, Ben Gaul is our resident Conservative Apologist / Political Analyst. Ben's Column focuses on the political and cultural goings-on in the Reno/Sparks/Carson area of Northern Nevada, with the occasional foray into Science, Economics, Men's Issues and Self Improvement.

His work experience over the past few decades includes a four year hitch in the Coast Guard; sailing up the Alaskan coast for two years, then serving as a boarding officer on the San Francisco Bay until his enlistment was up. Married before his discharge from the USCG, Ben moved his pregnant wife to Seattle to become a house painter, raise four beautiful daughters and enjoy all that greenery.

After an amicable divorce, he owned a series of small businesses looking for the right fit: A sports bar, a painting company, a bodyguard service, a marketing firm and a management consulting business. He also earned a few sheepskins for his wall, during all that spare time he had.

Ben now resides in Reno, Nevada where he works for a local Marketing Firm and dabbles in Talk Radio, Public Speaking, Copy Writing and Social Media Marketing – when not writing for the Liberty Voice, that is.

Russia Maneuvering in Ukraine

Russia Maneuvering in Ukraine

Same-Sex Marriage ‘Wags the Dog’

Same-Sex Marriage ‘Wags the Dog’
