If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen! — Samuel Adams

Immediate Opportunity to Capture, Deport Illegal Aliens

Bob Ellis

Illegal aliens are having a big protest right outside the White House today, demanding amnesty. This will be a great opportunity for our federal government to do its job by arresting and deporting a lot of these illegal aliens that are supposedly so hard to find.

Rand Paul vs. Rick Perry on Foreign Policy: A 2016 Preview

Steve Deace

There is no debate we’re a country in transition. In the political arena, nowhere will this attempted paradigm shift be more apparent than the foreign policy debate that could very well define the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Recently, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Texas Governor Rick Perry gave us a preview.

Give low income Americans exit option from Social Security

Star Parker

When Social Security was enacted in the 1930’s it seemed like a good idea. Everyone working would pay a small tax and those revenues could be used to pay a retirement stipend to retirees. But then there were 45 Americans working for every retiree. Because of longer life spans and shrinking families, this ratio is down to three to one today. This makes it impossible for this system to work. CBO projects that in 20 years there will be no funds to pay one third of the benefits of retirees.

No, Ann Coulter, it’s not about Blacks Voting in the MS GOP Run-Off

Gina Miller

This election has shown the people of Mississippi and the rest of America the dirty underside of a “Republican” political establishment that intends to win at any cost, and we want the truth to be exposed. As it stands, Friends of Barbour-Cochran in positions of authority across the state are doing all they can to prevent the truth from coming out and those responsible being held accountable.

‘Christian’ leaders fail to bring the truth

Bradlee Dean

The more I learn about this nation’s leadership in the church and in government, the more I can clearly see why America is in the state that it is in. The compromise I see is second to none. Compromise, of course, is where two people get together and agree on what they both know is wrong.

GOP Adding More to the Welfare Rolls?

Robert Romano

This is welfare reform? The way out of poverty? Have Paul Ryan and House Republicans given up on creating jobs? Do they accept the new normal of slow growth and therefore the necessity of an ever-expanding welfare state?

Devalued Border Sovereignty

Tom Toth

The apathetic responses to each of the crises from the last couple weeks reveals a trend showing exactly what Barack Obama thinks — or, rather, doesn’t think — about the value of border sovereignty. Whether it's Ukraine's borders, Israel's borders, or the borders of the United States, President Obama sees little value in the sovereignty of national borders.

Chipotle’s Wisdom

David John Marotta

The marketing people at Chipotle Mexican Grill have a new promotional idea called "cultivating thought." They invited selected authors to write something designed to be read in two minutes. These pieces are printed on the sides of Chipotle takeout bags as well as drink cups.

The Narrow Way (Ode to Pilgrim)

A.J. Castellitto

He will tell you there's no danger, He will tempt you on the way, He will seem the kindest stranger, He will be your hell to pay, He will lull you into slumber...

A Faithful Report

A.J. Castellitto

The reports are often skewed, and produce reactionary and hostile responses. And so the cycle goes on, and will continue until some sort of crisis or distraction unfolds (most likely staged or fabricated) that enables the people to rally together in unity against a common threat (perceived or otherwise).

If You Refuse to Get Married, You Can’t Call Your Relationship ‘Marriage’

Bob Ellis

I've seen few if any conservatives who can stay on point and stay on issue like Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation in this video. In a forum, a homosexual man asks Anderson why he and his partner shouldn't be able to file a joint tax return like married couples can. Anderson doesn't get distracted, but goes straight to the principle of the issue and stays there.

South Dakota Belatedly Notified of Immigrant Children Placement

Newswire

South Dakota officials learned today that, since the beginning of this year, 21 unaccompanied immigrant minors have been placed in South Dakota by federal officials.

Tax Cronyism in the States

Bob Ellis

The American Legislative Exchange Council has released a report on tax cronyism, and it's going on to some degree in pretty much every state. Tax cronyism is public policy designed to benefit certain industries or individuals instead of society in general. And it costs us all.

Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate Commands the Interstate

Bob Ellis

I just traveled back and forth across most of South Dakota in the past four days, from Rapid City to Sioux Falls, then down to Sioux City and beyond. As I traveled along I noticed that Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate had a lot of signs up along the I-90 and I-29 corridors. I'd have to say there were about a half-dozen going each way along I-90 running east-west, and two or three at least each way going north-south along I-29.

Israel: The Palestinian People’s Greatest Ally

J. Matt Barber

Israel is not tame. But she is good. If a poacher shoots arrows at a pride of sleeping lions, are the lions to blame for rousing and defending themselves? What does one say of the shooter when he intentionally cowers behind the skirts of his own women and daughters, hoping, indeed praying, that these precious souls will inadvertently perish as a result? One calls him a coward, a fool and a monster.

Impeachment: Why Should We Allow…?

Bob Ellis

Democrats have, predictably, pooh-poohed the idea of impeaching our lawless president Barack Obama. We expect that. But more than a few "Republicans" also don't want to impeach President Obama.

Mike Rounds Tries to Fix His Big Mistake

Bob Ellis

Former Governor and now U.S. Senate Candidate Mike Rounds screwed up in 2010, and how he's busy trying to put a bandaid on his mistake. The killer of Debbie Martines and her unborn child had been locked away without possibility of parole. Now, thanks to Mike Rounds, Debbie Martines' family must endure parole hearings every eight months to keep him locked up.

Why Have a Bill of Rights?

Dr. Robert R. Owens

Today we endure levels of control and taxation that make the causes of our own Revolution pale in comparison. It is hard not to believe that if Washington, Henry, and that generation were with us today, they wouldn’t be issuing declarations and raising the alarm, “The Totalitarians are coming! The Totalitarians are coming!!”

Declaration

Authority from the Governed–Nowhere Else!

David Whitney

All authority comes from the individuals and is provided to their representatives in government through an expressed powers document called a constitution. The understanding that all authority for government actions comes from the people individually is the fourth most important principle of freedom and the cornerstone of true freedom.

Madison_Constitution_1a

Why Did We Write it in the First Place?

Dr. Robert R. Owens

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.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
