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.

Noah and the Biblical Flood

Noah and the Biblical Flood

The story of Noah and the flood may be the most enduring and entertaining biblical story in all of Scripture.

Nokia is Competing With Android

Most customers probably have not heard of Nokia’s new line of “X” smartphones yet. They will all use the Android operating system, and set Nokia in the position of directly competing with Android.

Limbaugh: Reid and Murray Lying About Obamacare Woes [video]

Senator Harry Reid, (D) Nevada, and his distinguished colleague Senator Patty Murray, (D) Washington, have both publicly said that the stories about the damage which Obamacare is wreaking on the American public are all lies and fabrications.

Russia Maneuvering in Ukraine

Russia Maneuvering in Ukraine

The stalemate in Syria, following the compliance of Bashar al Assad towards the disposal of his country’s chemical weapons, in combination with the historic Egyptian/Russian military ties since the ouster of Muhammad Morsi, are believed to be just some of the reasons behind Russia maneuvering near the Ukraine. The military ties between Egypt and Russia […]

Same-Sex Marriage ‘Wags the Dog’

Same-Sex Marriage ‘Wags the Dog’

One of the chief tenets of a Democratic Republic, is “rule of law,” not the rule of lawyers. When same-sex marriage has been put to a vote state-by-state, the people of those states have generally said that a marriage is a union “between a man and a woman.” When lawyers and judges arbitrarily overrule the […]

Evolution vs Intelligent Design: Questions Worth Asking

Evolution vs Intelligent Design: Questions Worth Asking

Recently, a highly publicized discussion on the nature of creation versus evolution was held between Bill Nye and Ken Ham.

Israel to Join OPEC?

An enterprising American named Gideon Tadmor has made a discovery which will put Israel seriously on the energy production map. 30 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves, not 50 miles off the coast of Israel, set the tiny Middle Eastern nation in a position to, if not actually join OPEC, certainly compete with them. […]

Masculinity Under Fire: ‘Real’ Men are Disappearing

Masculinity Under Fire: ‘Real’ Men are Disappearing

“We hold these truths to be self-evident” can be said about a lot of patently obvious things. The idea that men are not women and women are not men, should be chief among them. Sadly, the lines dividing the two seem to be rapidly disappearing, with masculinity under heavy fire and the concept of the […]
