It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles. — Patrick Henry

Ferguson: Seeking Justice in an Immoral World

Bob Ellis

The news has now hit the streets that the grand jury in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of "gentle giant" Michael Brown has examined the evidence, and rejected five offered charges against Officer Darren Wilson. So the logical response of the Left is to burn the city of Ferguson to the ground. That's what happens in a nation whose god is its belly.

Impeach President Obama: Why When Where and How

Dr. Robert R. Owens

I know that just as with Clinton in the 90s, there are not enough Senators to convict but if these blatant attacks upon the checks and balances are not punished, at least by the shame and reproach of an Impeachment Resolution, they are being silently condoned.

Obamagration and our disdainful president

Star Parker

The executive order, which President Obama has issued, granting amnesty to millions of individuals now residing illegally in our country, should make clear the profound disregard our president has for American voters, our constitution, and our two-party system.

Public School Kids: Seen But Not Heard

Bradlee Dean

Many older folks today in this country have little or no good thing to say about the up and coming generation, as if to excuse themselves in one way or another concerning their posterity. Do you remember, “wisdom is justified by her children"?

What the Fallen, Unregenerate Hate Most

A.J. Castellitto

For most He is the bitter pill, the tough love, the strange medicine, the road rejected. He is our rage and our rejection. He is our mock and our ridicule.

America: The GOP is Lying to You

Bob Ellis

This isn't a Democrat saying this. This isn't the "mainstream" media (pardon the redundancy in conjunction with the last sentence) saying this. This isn't even me--who witnessed so much duplicity, hypocrisy, corruption and liberalism within the "Republican" Party in the last four years that I can't carry the water for this pack of liars anymore--saying this.

Jonathan Gruber: Lies and Glue

Michael Peroutka

Frederick Bastiat, in his famous work “The Law”, wrote that “no society can exist unless the laws are respected to a certain degree.” The way to make laws respected, Bastiat said, “is to make them respectable.” But “when law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law.”

The Left’s Totalitarian Impulse

Bill Wilson

The modus operandi of America’s far left isn’t subtle: It’s all about “taking.” Money, property, privacy, speech, guns — you name it. Everywhere we look, the foundational underpinnings of our once-free, once-prosperous society are being encroached upon by government’s emboldened totalitarian impulses.

Terrorists: They’re Coming to America

Victor Sharpe

According to recently released data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 5,063 individuals from nations that harbor Islamic terrorists were arrested last year alone trying to cross into America from Mexico. None of these were Mexicans, Guatemalans, or Hondurans; they were citizens from far-away nations consumed by militant Islam.

The Economics of a Thanksgiving Turkey

David John Marotta

Turkeys have always been an interesting study for economics. Because of the consistency of their demand in America, the price of a Thanksgiving turkey can be used as an indicator of inflation.

Obama Buddy, HRC Founder Charged with Raping Boy

J. Matt Barber

So here we go again. Yet another high-profile “gay” activist has been arrested for homosexual assault on a child. This time authorities bagged a big fish (a rainbow trout?) in boy-loving real estate mogul Terrance Patrick Bean. Bean co-founded the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which is one of the world’s largest, wealthiest and most powerful anti-Christian, pro-homosexual organizations. Bean is also a major bundler for the DNC and BFFs with Barack and Michelle Obama.

It didn't take long for South Dakota U.S. Senator-elect Mike Rounds to move from merely cheering for the Surrender Caucus of gutless "Republicans" in Washington D.C. to officially joining their ranks.

Freedom and Free Market say ‘No on 17′

Bob Ellis

Tomorrow, South Dakotans will go to the polls. Among the races and issues to be decided is one called Initiated Measure 17 which deals with the issue of in-network and out-of-network health care providers. It is being billed by supporters as a "patient choice" measure, and I suppose that is true. But like so many pieces of legislation that get government involved in the free market, it actually diminishes choice and freedom.

The Assaults of Firecrackers, Murderers, and Odious Songs

Victor Sharpe

The Jewish faith has bestowed many wondrous divine blessings upon the world. Among them is, of course, the Sabbath day. It should be with a sense of horror and utter distress that the world should know that Muslim Arabs in Jerusalem deliberately and maliciously desecrate the peace on the eve of every Jewish Sabbath.

Constitution Not a Self-Enforcing Document

Michael Peroutka

The Constitution is not a self-enforcing document. Although the Constitution is the supreme law of our land and provides limits on the powers and authorities of our federal, state and local governments, its words cannot and will not leap off the page and enforce themselves. The common folk of America must be the champions of their own liberty.

"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
