    • Why Gridlock is a Good Thing - 30 May 2014
      posted in Columns & Politics & Govt

      The biggest hurdle we have in maintaining the safety of gridlock is that the Progressives have captured the leadership of both major parties. 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 […]

    • Why Do We Obey? - 23 May 2014
      posted in Columns

      In the face of continued abuse the timid grow bold, old habits are broken, and when respect is lost it is not easily regained.   How can a law be illegitimate?  Isn’t this an oxymoronic question?  It is a question that brings us to the concept that there can be a difference between what is legal […]

    • Why Liberty Dies - 16 May 2014
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns

      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 […]

    • Why Do They Lie to Us? - 13 May 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Big Myths & Civil Liberties & Columns

      The major media has morphed from a watchdog to a lapdog barking on cue that everything is all right, there’s nothing to see here, move along When faced with the highest levels of unemployment in American History why does the government trumpet a falling unemployment rate? In the face of overwhelming evidence of ineptness at […]

    • Why Are the Republicans Committing Suicide? - 06 May 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Big Parties & Columns

      Something has gone drastically wrong with the greatest experiment in human freedom the world has ever seen. With what could be a wave election on the horizon in November due to the unpopularity of Obamacare, why is the Republican leadership raising the white flag?  With the end result being a perpetual Democrat lock on the […]

    • Why Did We Write it in the First Place ? - 28 Apr 2014
      posted in Columns

      Besides regulating the division of authority, constitutions written to limit government must contain substantive rules. They need to establish general principles which will govern the specific acts of the legislature.  Therefore the essence of a constitution involves not only a hierarchy of power and authority it also establishes a hierarchy of laws.  The founding principles […]

    • Would We the People Ratify the Constitution Today? - 18 Apr 2014
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns

      We the People are the opening words of the preamble to the Constitution.  Many patriots glory in that name, “We the People” holding it aloft as a banner against the encroachments of an ever expanding central government.   In the minds of many it is connected somehow to Lincoln’s famous description of America’s government, “Of the […]

    • Yes, America Did Build That - 14 Apr 2014
      posted in Columns & Natural Law & Natural Rights & The Constitution & Tyranny

      America’s first great contribution to the world: the concept of a written constitution. I have often been tempted to believe that the greatest contribution of the British people to the world has been the concept of a private limited liability company. It was the development of this concept that created the environment for the invisible […]

    • You Need Limits to be Free - 07 Mar 2014
      posted in Columns

      The problem with anarchy is that it must become organized to accomplish anything.  Then like militant apathy it declares war against the machine never realizing that it is merely another cog in the wheel that grinds itself to dust. The Law of Liberty defines that space where an individual is secure and free to live […]
