Without liberty, law loses its nature and its name, and becomes oppression. Without law, liberty also loses its nature and its name, and becomes licentiousness. — James Wilson, Founder and signer of the Declaration and Constitution

Reality or Make-Believe: ‘Civil Rights’ in Ferguson

Michael Peroutka

Despite man’s attempt to defy gravity, it is immutable. Obviously, we can see clearly that the law of gravity, one of the physical laws of the universe, is not within our power to ignore or to repeal. We really can’t break it without getting broken by it.

Justice the Guardian of Liberty

David Whitney

There is a monster loose in America. It is a tyrannical monster whose perfidy grows every day. He is intelligent, educated at the most elite institutions and is holding some of the most powerful and prestigious positions in our land. He’s at his worst when all decked out in black. In the past month alone by means of its multitude of tentacles this monster has conducted a coordinated attack on the most ancient and most valuable of human institution, the one that pre-dates everything short of the first six days of creation.

Why I Insist on Shaking Sleeping Americans Awake

Bradlee Dean

It seems as if no matter how many times one tries to wake the American people up to who are conspiring against us, there are always going to be some people who will take a step back – namely, the cowards who walk contrary to their own professed beliefs. Conservatives today do not want to stand up for the truth they profess to hold on to. They love their freedom so much that they are not willing to fight for it.

America in 2039: What if Revival Doesn’t Happen?

Steve Deace

Beyond the obvious technological advancements that have mostly benefited our lives, many of the issues we are currently wrestling with as a people weren’t even conceivable in 1989. Given that trend line, and the fact we are domestically debating unprecedented existential threats to individual liberty, the next 25 years could become American Exceptionalism’s tipping point moment barring revival.

Patriotism: Something to Think About

Ricki Pepin

Most Americans today would call themselves patriots. Would you? But what does that mean…to be an American…to be a patriot? What is the basis for your self-description as a patriotic American? This is something to think about!

Understanding Income Redistribution

Bob Ellis

Isn't it wonderful that we fought a Marxist totalitarian system for decades in a Cold War which we finally won when we got the guts to get serious about winning....only to embrace such practices in our own country? Andrew Klavan at the Revolting Truth will help you to understand income redistribution. You didn't really want all that money you worked for, did you? Silly freedom-lover!

They Own You!

A.J. Castellitto

YOU are no longer your own. That will be the bottom-line. Dependence on the government means they no longer work for you. Rather, you will needs be obedient to them or be faced with the real possibility of being cut off, penalized or punished.

No more defeatism, Christians!

Bradlee Dean

Friends, at times it gets to the point where you have to throw your hands in the air and say, “Enough is enough!” That time for me is now. What’s worse is when you get around professed Christians, patriots and conservatives that add insult to injury when you go through their posts on the Internet, which seem like nothing but defeatism. And friends, I, for one, cannot stand it.

Will We Be Ignorant or Free?

Michael Peroutka

“Anyone who desires to be ignorant and free, desires what never was and never will be.” When Jefferson, the principle author of the American Declaration of Independence, wrote these words, he was expressing a truth that relatively few Americans appreciate today.

When Law-Abiding Citizens Become Criminals

John W. Whitehead

Why are we seeing such an uptick in Americans being arrested for such absurd “violations” as letting their kids play at a park unsupervised, collecting rainwater and snow runoff on their own property, growing vegetables in their yard, and holding Bible studies in their living room? Mind you, we’re not talking tickets or fines or even warnings being issued to these so-called “lawbreakers.” We’re talking felony charges, handcuffs, police cars, mug shots, pat downs, jail cells and criminal records.

Cryptic Medical Bills And Health Insurance

David John Marotta

With a third-party payer involved, health care providers don't need to please their patients to get paid. They need to please their patient's health insurance. If the insurance company isn't satisfied, it isn't going to pay. For this reason, hospital bills are generated with health insurance companies in mind. And health insurance companies, both public and private, have incentives to be difficult to please.

How We Told Our Kids About Sex

J. Matt Barber

Rocker Marilyn Manson, while certainly no role model for children, is, nonetheless, an intelligent chap. He at least calls it how he sees it. “This is the culture you’re raising your kids in,” he once warned of today’s godless, secularized America – one that he helped make so. “Don’t be surprised if it blows up in your face.” And blow up it will.

Why Worry When You Can Pray

Dr. Robert R. Owens

How can I watch with the contextual awareness of an historian the seemingly unstoppable advance of the progressives in their quest to re-build America in their own image without falling victim to the lure of apathy and the thrill of the games?

Spiritual Fruit vs. Religious Nuts

A.J. Castellitto

The world is a hard place. We’ve been made and formed with pain and trauma. We all have a story. We’ve all survived something or have been affected by someone who has. We all need relief. We all need comfort. We all need redemption. We all need JESUS!!!

One of Five Questions With Gordon Howie

Bob Ellis

The Rapid City Journal asked five questions of conservative independent candidate for U.S. Senate Gordon Howie. Here's one of them: You say even the Republican in the race (Rounds) is not a "true conservative." What makes you the one truly conservative candidate?

"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
