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 […]

Why the Tea Party Failed

Americans Have the Right to be Muslim Free

jan morgan Recently, MailOnline posted an article regarding a gun range owner in Arkansas. The posting wasn't about a spotless safety record. It didn't regard the owner's advocacy for gun rights or the second amendment. They didn't write about a successful woman owned small business. No, it wasn't a feel-good story. Evidently, Ms. Jan Morgan, the owner […]

Stewardship of the Republic

american_flag_wallpaper_40 Whenever the health of the American Republic is in serious decline, who will take action? You might ask, "What Republic?" It is a rare occasion today when anyone refers to our nation as a republic.
