    • 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 […]

    • Why We Need Capitalists - 21 Feb 2014
      posted in Columns

      If we are to survive let alone thrive we have got to open the way for the innovator. At one time in America most people were financially independent.  I don’t mean by this that most people were wealthy.  What I mean is that they worked for themselves as opposed to working for someone else as […]

    • Why Should the House Impeach President Obama? - 14 Feb 2014
      posted in America First & Big Gov & Columns & Executive & Politics & Govt & The Constitution

      We, the lovers of freedom and the supporters of limited government cannot merely wait out the clock on the Obama presidency.  Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution requires that before presidents can assume their duties they must take the oath of office.   Every president from George Washington to Barak Obama has placed their hand on […]

    • Why Can’t We Change? - 07 Feb 2014
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns & Natural Law & Natural Rights & The Constitution & Tyranny

      Paths with no obstacles usually lead nowhere. Among those who hallow the Constitution you will find no more loyal devotee to this document that helped continue the limited government established under the Article of Confederation.  There is no one who believes more passionately than the author of this article that the Constitution provided the space […]

    • Which Words Work - 03 Feb 2014
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns

      Both of terms; democracy and liberty are used in vague and wide references by those who seek to lead our people.  What words mean is important.  The ability to speak, to transfer complex and symbolic knowledge from one person to another is one of the hallmarks of humanity.  When words lose their meaning communication loses […]

    • Whose Responsibility is It? - 27 Jan 2014
      posted in Uncategorized

      God makes all of us to be round pegs in round holes.  In a free society if we end up a round peg in a square hole… that’s on us. There is no feeling worse than believing we have squandered our talents, wasted our life, and made no difference in our short time upon the […]

    • Who Will Win the War Against Income Inequality? - 20 Jan 2014
      posted in Columns

      We will still call it the United States of America.  We will still tell ourselves we are free, prosperous, and powerful however we may all be whistling in the wind. From each according to their ability to each according to their need was the hollow promise of the Soviet Union.  It was long known to […]

    • What’s the Reason? - 13 Jan 2014
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns

      Our virtue is embodied and defended in our traditions.  Just as the pursuit of perfection can often end in the sacrifice of what is good so too the worship of reason often results in the exaltation of mediocrity and the circumscription of reasonable thought and action. Daily the Progressives aggressively push forward against positions which […]
