The Constitution is not a Self-Enforcing Document

United-States-Constitution   The Constitution is not a self-enforcing document. Although the Constitution is the supreme law of our land and provides limits on the powers and authorities of our federal, state and local governments, its words cannot and will not leap off the page and enforce themselves. The common folk of America must be the champions […]

Between Anarchy and Tyranny, There is Liberty

The Continuing Al-Qaeda Threat

US-POLITICS-CONGRESS-SECURITY Appearing last week before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified that he could not say the threat from al-Qaeda is any less today than it was ten years ago.

From his chief advisor Valerie Jarrett to his Communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, to his Marxist leanings in college to his discipleship at the feet of Saul Alinsky, Barack Obama is a mixture of these ideologies. This is really what the […]

event-marketing-lies  In secular terms, I am not the kind of guy who gets behind men; for men will always disappoint you.  I, instead, prefer to get behind ideas.  So, political labels mean little to me.  Democrat, Republican, Liberal, Conservative, Left and Right.  All labels that conveniently allow politicians a fallback position when the battle of ideas […]

It is a reflection of the adversarial nature into which we have allowed our country to descend.Yes, there are other formally recognized parties in this country. To the best of my very limited […]

Liberty Makes Ignorance Necessary

liberty If we knew everything in the past and the future there would be little need for freedom.  If we could accurately know all that preceded our fleeting moment upon life's stage, if we could know all the consequences of our present desires, and if we could know what we would desire in the future we […]

bill-of-rights-hero-lg Each day, I read multiple stories describing the disintegration of one right or another. Perhaps it's the right to Free Speech which is being impeded, as when a government sets up a "protest-free" zone. Perhaps it's the right to Bear Arms which is being infringed, as when a government sets up a "gun-free" zone. Perhaps […]
