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

Pastors must take back civil rights movement

Star Parker

The purging of Grammy Award winner Donnie McClurkin from performing at a concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1963 civil rights March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech should serve as yet another wakeup call to Christian black Americans. Political correctness and a militant campaign to delegitimize religion and traditional values in America have become more important than our constitutionally guaranteed rights to freedom of speech and religion.

The Silence of American Feminists is Deafening

Ken Connor

The airwaves are clogged and mailboxes stuffed with the message that the crusty old white men who comprise the GOP are engaged in a "war on women."

For some strange reason, American feminists don't seem all that bothered by the fact that in many countries Muslim women are treated as second class citizens.

The Case for Israel: Have You Lost Your Minds?

Bob Ellis

In this day and age of massive deception at the hands of the Left and their mouthpiece known as the "mainstream" media, it is important that we look back over the course of recent history to see what has happened since Israel was reborn in 1948. When we cut through all the hyperventilation, anti-Semitism and outright propaganda, it becomes boldly apparent that Israel--the only democracy in the Middle East--is being thrown to the wolves by most of the world.

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!!”

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
