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 […]

Why We Need a Third Party

need-third-party-parties-20073 It has happened just as foretold. The Progressive Republicans joined with their Democrat fellow-travelers and once again sold our inheritance for a bowl of promises. In 2010, we voted for an end to the out of control spending, and what did we get? 3.5 trillion steps closer to the abyss. Fast forward to 2014 and […]

Obama's Executive Amnesty is Only the Beginning

obamaamnesty Now that BHO has decreed that deportations will cease and work permits and other privileges of legal immigration will be granted to those who chose to enter our country illegally, what's next? In less time than it takes to say "Fundamentally transform America" the chorus of usual suspects, Charles Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and […]

Obama Is Counting on Rejection of Impeachment

101213aIMPEACH The recent elections delivered the most crushing defeat a political Party has suffered since Ronald Reagan's 1984 Forty-nine state landslide.  Democrats were rejected by every voting block demographic: young, old, men, women, rich, poor.  Everyone said, "Enough is too much already!" Exit polls everywhere say their handling of the economy and the general direction of […]

Law vs Anti-Law

469165-law-1353480116-387-640x480 America was founded upon the principles of Natural Law.  The Progressives led us into the realms of Legal Positivism.  The vast government apparatus they have constructed has progressed into a dystopian fantasy land beyond law where faceless bureaucrats in an alphabet soup of departments create regulations with the force of law from thin air.  Such […]

Obama: The Most Incompetent President

ZObama The once haute couture No Drama Obama has fumbled his way to the "What me worry?" of Alfred E. Newman.  After almost five full years of the coolest, smartest, least prepared president America has ever had, it has become obvious, even to the corporations once known as the mainstream media, that except for efforts to […]

Why the Welfare State Isn’t Well and It Isn’t Fair

welfare-state Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries, Socialism had a fairly precise definition, a somewhat clear program, and a generally agreed upon goal. The definition of Socialism was some variant of Karl Marx's well known statement, "From each according to the ability to each according to their need." Socialism's program was the nationalization of […]

Why Do We Have a Bill of Rights?

bill-of-rights-hero-lg In any free society, that area of life which is left to the sole discretion of the individual includes all actions that are not specifically forbidden by a general law.  In our nation, when it came time for the ratification of the Constitution it would have been impossible to gain the votes needed if the […]

Why Gridlock in Washington is a Good Thing

Washington-Gridlock Gridlock is one of the greatest blessings bestowed upon us by the Framers.  It is a natural result of the checks and balances built into the system to stop any temporary majority from fundamentally changing the country.  If it wasn't for the checks and balances, FDR would have completely socialized the country back in the […]

This is Why Liberty Dies

death of liberty To understand why liberty is imperiled in our country today, we must first state clearly and unequivocally what is liberty.  Then and only then can we understand what is necessary for its preservation as well as see what is undermining it today.  Liberty is the absence of coercion and the freedom to act upon your […]
