It is impossible for the man of pious reflection not to perceive in it [the Constitution] a finger of that Almighty hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of the revolution. — James Madison, Often called “the Father of the Constitution”

Bureaucratic Red Tape Strangles Jobs

Adam Bitely

In a 245-172 vote in the House on July 26, the House passed H.R. 4078, the Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act. This legislation, if passed by the Senate and signed by the President, would stop the federal government from imposing many harmful regulations that cripple job creation until the unemployment rate dips below 6 percent. Unfortunately, Harry Reid will block this attempt at stopping Big Government from ever seeing the light of day in the Senate and Obama has promised to veto this bill should it ever reach his desk.

Owens’ Law of Oscillating Pyramids

Dr. Robert R. Owens

At the time of the American Revolution, there was no direct taxation. There was instead taxes on various transactions which in total added up to a miniscule percentage of their income. Today, for many it is now over 50%. How much corn are we willing to give to those we don’t trust to do things we don’t want? How long can this continue?

What Happened to the Gold Standard?

David John Marotta

A gold standard helps protect a currency from rampant inflation. The Fed could perform this function only if it could somehow display perfect self-control. Such an ideal may never occur and will never last when the temptation and incentives for the Fed to manipulate other parts of the economy are so great. Reform is necessary to protect our currency.

Would We the People Ratify the Constitution Today?

Dr. Robert R. Owens

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 People, by the people and for the people.”

He’s Not There!

Paula Dagnel

During the time of the early Church, when one believer would greet another, he would say “He is risen!” And the other believer would respond “He is risen, indeed!” I’d love to see that brought back to the present day; and if not every time we greet our fellow believer, at the very least, on this Easter weekend.

"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
