Good Bye America It Was Good to Know You

Looking at the sad state of our republic about all I have left to say is, “Good bye America it was good to know you.”

Deserving of Ownership

Deserving of Ownership

We all share in what we most detest. For too many irrelevant reasonings, we have dismissed, denied, ignored or just been unfaithful but certainly less than noble of what we inherited at birth. As a result, this inheritance is now in great peril.

A Government of Laws, Not of Men

A Government of Laws, Not of Men

A famous line in our nation’s history, incorporated into the Massachusetts Constitution in 1780, says that “it may be a government of laws, and not of men.” The author of this passage was John Adams, America’s second president. It’s this very basic idea — the rule of law — that was at the core of the American idea and that would make possible the ideal of individual freedom.

Why Do Kids Repel God?

Why Do Kids Repel God?

Just last week at the Supreme Court building in Washington D.C., I had the opportunity to speak to a small group of students who were on a field trip to the nation’s capital. What I experienced stunned and disheartened me momentarily.

The Faces of Victims of Homosexual Tyranny

The Faces of Victims of Homosexual Tyranny

Take a look at the faces of seven victims of homosexual tyranny: Aaron and Melissa Klein, and their five children. They had (had) a bakery business of their own in Oregon, until homosexual activists destroyed that. Which side of freedom do you want to be on?

Law Enforcement: Policing or Militarizing?

We have a duty to set expectations for our local police. We must decide: What do we want our police to look like and how involved do we want them to be in fixing social problems? How large is their purview and how strong their hand? We can’t write them a blank check or we’ll lose our liberties paying for it.

SCOTUS Hears Arguments on Marriage

SCOTUS Hears Arguments on Marriage

Thousands of years of human history cannot be overruled by three hours of debate before nine imperfect people. But today that is the best liberals can hope for in the race to upend nature’s law — and nature’s God. Outside the U.S. Supreme Court, where the future of civilization was on trial, people from both sides of the marriage debate soaked in the sun while inside clouds gathered over the question that’s shadowed America for the last 11 years: does the court have a right to force same-sex “marriage” on every state in the union?

A Blueprint for Locking Down the Nation

Recent events, when viewed collectively, leave one wondering what exactly the U.S. government is preparing for and whether American citizens shouldn’t be preparing, as well, for that eventuality when our so-called “government of the people, by the people, for the people” is no longer answerable to “we the people.”
