    • What’s Missing in the Current Immigration ‘Crisis’ Debate - 14 Jul 2014
      posted in Columns

      Over the past several weeks we have seen a significant increase in illegal immigration, as thousands of unaccompanied minors pour across what seems an invisible southern border into the United States. The mass immigration has, as to be expected, put an enormous strain on local resources, and it has heated up the immigration debate in […]

    • SCOTUS Decision Creates Small Island of Freedom in Ocean of Statism - 07 Jul 2014
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns

      Recently, supporters of religious freedom cheered the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. The Court was correct to protect business owners from being forced to violate their religious beliefs by paying for contraceptives. However, the decision was very limited in scope and application. The Court’s decision only applies to certain types of businesses, […]

      Former presidential candidate and U.S. Representative from Texas Ron Paul told Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg that hospitals have long been ‘under siege by immigrants,’ even before the latest immigration crisis. “And with these thousands, tens of thousands, who knows how many [children] . . . you’re going to see some very serious health problems .

    • Celebrate Independence Day By Opposing Government Tyranny - 30 Jun 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Civil Liberties & Columns & The Constitution & Tyranny

      This week Americans will enjoy Independence Day with family cookouts and fireworks. Flags will be displayed in abundance. Sadly, however, what should be a celebration of the courage of those who risked so much to oppose tyranny will instead be turned into a celebration of government, not liberty. The mainstream media and opportunistic politicians have […]

    • Opt-Out of Common Core, Opt-In to The Ron Paul Curriculum - 23 Jun 2014
      posted in Columns & Education

      Oklahoma recently took action to protect the state’s children from the federal education bureaucracy by withdrawing from Common Core. Common Core is the latest attempt to bribe states, with money taken from the American people, into adopting a curriculum developed by federal bureaucrats and education “experts.” In exchange for federal funds, states must change their […]

    • Haven’t We Already Done Enough Damage in Iraq? - 16 Jun 2014
      posted in Columns & World

      In 2006, I invited the late General Bill Odom to address my Thursday Congressional luncheon group. Gen. Odom, a former NSA director, called the Iraq war “the greatest strategic disaster in American history,” and told the surprised audience that he could not understand why Congress had not impeached the president for pushing this disaster on […]

    • Obama’s Foreign Policy Rhetoric Does Not Match US Actions - 09 Jun 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Columns & War

      President Obama’s recent foreign policy speech, delivered at this year’s West Point graduation ceremony, was a disappointment to anyone who hoped the president might be changing course. The failure of each US intervention thus far in the 21st century might have inspired at least a bit of reflection. However, the president made it clear that […]

    • Mental Health Screening: A Good Way to Decrease Liberty, Poor Way to Increase Security - 02 Jun 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Civil Liberties & Columns & Gun Control & To Bear Arms

      Last week Americans were shocked and saddened by another mass killing, this one near a college campus in California. We all feel deep sympathy for the families of the victims. As usual, many people responded to this shooting by calling for new federal gun control laws, including the mental health screening of anyone attempting to […]

    • John Boehner Hates the Tea Party - 29 May 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Big Parties & Columns & Tea Party

      What is now called the Tea Party began in 2007 as a loosely-organized yet highly-motivated grassroots support effort for Congressman Ron Paul’s bid for the White House. Since those early days, a lot has happened to the Tea Party. For one thing, the Tea Party is now much larger and broader than any one person’s […]

    • Tax Reform is Useless Without Spending Reform - 19 May 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Columns & Legislative & Politics & Govt & Spending

      Recently, Republican leaders in Congress unveiled a “tax reform” plan that they claimed would provide the American people with a simpler, fairer, and more efficient tax system. While this plan does lower some tax rates and contains some other changes that may make next April a little less painful for Americans, there is little in […]
