Now is the Time to Fight for Freedom

Now is the Time to Fight for Freedom

It is not delusional to expect elected officials to keep their word. When a politician says they will fight tooth and nail for something, it is reasonable to expect that they will. It is not delusional to expect an elected official who put his or her hand on a Bible and swore an oath to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States to do that.

Covetousness as Idolatry

Covetousness as Idolatry

Consider the multi-billion dollar industry of Madison Avenue. It is devoted to manipulating people to desire things they probably cannot afford, so that they buy things they do not need to impress people they don’t even care about. How do we oppose this lure of covetousness in our own heart, how do we oppose the politics of covetousness in our culture?

Light One Candle

The professional politicians, their casino capitalist cronies and the media/academic alliance that justifies and promotes their seizure of power have triumphed. The America we have known, the one we grew up in has been replaced by Saul Alinsky’s America and no matter how many times we click our heels and say, “I want to go home,” you just can’t get there from here.

The Duty to Disobey Unjust Laws

The Duty to Disobey Unjust Laws

As we see example after example after example of every branch of our federal government trample the constitution established by “we the people” and the natural rights of “we the people” (and our state governments often complicit in the betrayal), the idea of standing in defiance of our own government is no longer some vague academic exercise, but a very real necessity that is right before our face.

A Warning from the Past and the Prince

True corruption occurs when politics only serves private or narrow interests far beyond reach, and power is concentrated into the hands of a few, and so the people only concern themselves with their private lives. This is when the people and their representatives no longer have any means of wielding true power, and thus become disconnected from the process. Is Congress on the outside, looking in?

So Just What Are ‘Gay Rights’?

So Just What Are ‘Gay Rights’?

Recently, Sean Hannity interviewed Dr. Carson and as a result Dr. Carson received a lot of criticism for his pro-family values. During the interview, he stated, “I simply have decided I am not really going to talk about that (homosexual rights) issue any more…”. Many pro-marriage advocates are criticizing his statement, but I am not one of them.

God or Government?

God or Government?

If our society accepts the notion that the source of our liberty is government rather than God, then that liberty is no longer secure. What the government gives, it can take away. Thomas Jefferson rightly asked, “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?” Every American should ask themselves this same question.

AL Supreme Court Pushes Back Against Federal Marriage Tyranny

AL Supreme Court Pushes Back Against Federal Marriage Tyranny

It is so refreshing to finally see at least one state (Alabama) stand up and push back against the tyranny of the federal government and judicial activists. Six Alabama Supreme Court justices issued an opinion today that federal tyranny doesn’t alter the judges’ duty to administer state law, which defines marriage as between only one man and one woman.
