If It Isn’t America First, What Is It?

american_map_flag_144113240_std-300x244 The very words "America First" have gained a social stigma accorded few things in American History—things such as "McCarthyism," or "America for Americans," or "Reverse Discrimination."  These words that have been made politically incorrect by the media wing of the Progressive Republocrat Party.  The original America First Committee was painted with the broad brush of […]

Is the Culture War Over?

Demonstrators gather to protest a controversial religious freedom bill in Indianapolis Knowing that there is no fool like an old fool, the seasoned citizen trying to prove he hasn't lost his grip on America's rapidly changing culture says to his grandchild, "I'm not exactly your father's Oldsmobile."  His grandchild looks at him like he is a dithering old codger and says, "What's an Oldsmobile?"     If the […]

The Politics of Easter

empty-tomb-copy I love my country.  I consider myself a patriot.  I believe that the United States has provided more people with more freedom and more opportunity than any other nation that has ever existed.  I think the United States has been blessed by God.    Having said all that, I must admit that I am only a […]

Jettison the Empire to Save the Republic 2015

american_map_flag_144113240_std In 1951, President Harry Truman ignored the advice of General Douglas MacArthur, who rightly perceived that it was China that was the real threat. Truman fired MacArthur and doomed American troops to a limited war, which dragged on for two more years.  Then, when General Ridgeway and his meat grinder defense had bled the Chinese […]

Light One Candle

3154976164_b63a17def9 Over the years, I have used these articles to chronicle America's slide from a nation based on limited government, personal liberty, and economic opportunity to one based on an all-powerful central government, an apathetic public bought off with entitlements, and a regulated economy in free-fall to stagnation if not contraction. The professional politicians, their casino […]

Does the Sun Set in the West?

AFW-Sunset-Pix I have taught the history of Western Civilization for many years. I praise God that I have taught at institutions that allowed me to teach this history without the disdain that is often heaped upon what some call Eurocentric culture. Personally, I believe that Western Civilization which may have peaked before the beginning of our […]

Chicago on the Potomac

obama-chicago-on-the-potomac1 Back in the Dream Time, elders were honored because of their accumulated knowledge. If Pops knew a better way to saddle horses, that knowledge helped Junior, since he saddled horses. Today, if Pops knows how to tune-up cars, what good is that when cars don't need to be tuned-up anymore? Now the old are relegated […]

A Rose By Any Other Name

news-graphics-2007-_442963a The main lesson we learn from History is that we don't learn from History.  The lack of historical perspective is, I believe, one of the major contributing factors in America's current state.    People don't realize that all of these novel fixes our collectivist leaders are shoving down our throats with regard to health care have […]

We Need More of Moore

set-5a-color-roy-moore-chief-justice-14825913jpg-df54fe1459ae944b_810_500_55_s_c1 The Ninth Amendment to the Constitution states that, "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." This past Sunday, Chris Wallace interviewed Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.  Chief Justice Moore is once again in the news for standing up for the rule […]

Huge Hoax Holds Humanity Hostage

Al_Gore_Lies_25 Wow! The Man-made Global Warming Hoax is a Hoax. Who saw this coming except anyone investing five minutes examining the scientific evidence from both sides? Or anyone remembering this is the same crowd of alarmists who warned of a new ice age in the 1970s. Let's see, they wouldn't buy the Brooklyn Bridge but they're […]

How Do We Get Back to Where We Were?

federal-government It's hard to be a conservative when there's little left to conserve. The increasing pace of America's progression from free markets to a command economy has reached such a pace and become so obvious that way back in 2009, the Russian Prime Minister used his spotlight time at the World Economic Forum to warn America […]

America Is In Way Over Its Head in Debt

silly-1 A few years ago, with tongue securely in cheek, I wrote about the Fed buying Treasury Bonds. I tried using the absurd to make a point. I explained this would be like issuing your own credit card, buying everything you want, paying for the credit card with your checking account, and filling the checking account […]

What Happens When Progressives Tax (and Spend)

tax1 As Rush Limbaugh so rightly pointed out, "No nation has ever taxed itself into prosperity."  So many people have accepted the argument that progressive taxation is just, necessary, and fair, so I know this article will offend many.  Hopefully it will also make a few people reconsider their acceptance of policy.  Many who are vehemently […]
