      posted in Big Gov & Civil Liberties & Columns

      What happens when an institution becomes more important than the cause for which the institution was formed? How long should people who believe in the cause remain loyal to such an institution?

      If you are a lover of liberty in America today, you probably have gotten used to hearing and seeing “bad news.” I’m sure that you would agree that we live in an age of lawlessness and corruption.  We have a central government that has become everything that our Founders feared.  Indeed, Washington, D.C. has become […]

      Paths with no obstacles usually lead nowhere.

      The 2013 movie, Man of Steel, is a more serious remake (and re-boot) of the 1983 classic, Superman II.  The 1983 version was probably the best of the Superman collection of films, introducing the storyline that this traditional American hero, wrapped in the American flag, actually desired to be human like everyone else and to […]
