The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse. — James Madison, speech in the Virginia constitutional convention, December 2, 1829

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.

Since law tends to be a reflection of culture, it is incumbent upon policy makers to understand the implications of embracing the "right to die" movement wholesale. They will also do well to remember that the idea that there are some lives "not worth living" undergirded Adolph Hitler's Aryan-supremacy world view. His policy of eliminating the "unworthy" began with the mentally handicapped and physically disabled but spread to millions of Jews.

Should Christians Be Politically Active?

Gina Miller

This is a question with which many Christians have struggled, due to the lack of overt New Testament admonitions to do so.

"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
