I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them. — George Mason, during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

Thoughts on the Coming Election

Dr. Robert R. Owens

The courts have been packed, the banks have been bought off, and the unions use legally mandated dues to support candidates and policies their unwilling members don’t want. Check and check-mate. The situation has become so dire and the hour so late that it appears the only line of defense we have left between the USA and the USSA is a House of Representatives controlled by Progressive Republicans and the hope of a Senate controlled by the same crowd. The old bulls talk conservative to get elected, then join hands across the aisles in a marriage of despotism with deceit.

What a Friend Is He to Those Who Follow and Believe!

A.J. Castellitto

He has become a light unto the Gentiles throughout the ages. He is the Great Comforter and He works in the hearts of men to do great things on His behalf. Flawed men laden with sin, have been driven upon their knees and submitted themselves unto the mercy and loving kindness of the anointed one. Filled with the Holy Spirit, they have enabled themselves to be used to advance the kingdom of God.

Why the Welfare State Isn’t Well and It Isn’t Fair

Dr. Robert R. Owens

Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries, socialism had a fairly precise definition, a somewhat clear program, and a generally agreed upon goal. The definition of socialism was some variant of Karl Marx’s well known statement, “From each according to the ability, to each according to their need.” Socialism’s program was the nationalization of all means of production, exchange, and distribution.

If You Had to Explain Today’s America to Founders

Bradlee Dean

Picture this: You’re going to be meeting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. They wants to know what has happened to America. What will you say?

Not Even Kings (or Presidents) Are Above the Law

Bob Ellis

Did you know that the Old Testament kings in Israel were not a law unto themselves? That they were under the authority of a law higher than themselves? Did you know that presidents today are under a higher law? Why do we allow some to behave as if they were a law unto themselves?

Inscription on the U.S. Dept of Justice Building

Law vs Anti-Law

Dr. Robert R. Owens

America was founded upon the principles of Natural Law. The Progressives led us into the realms of Legal Positivism. The vast government apparatus they have constructed has progressed into a dystopian fantasy land beyond law where faceless bureaucrats in an alphabet soup of departments create regulations with the force of law from thin air. Such is the journey from tyranny to tyranny in ten generations. Such is the journey from law to anti-law.

Multiculturalism: Good or Bad for America?

Michael Peroutka

Is multiculturalism a good thing or a bad thing for our American society? You might not realize it, but this is a very important question. This agenda of multiculturalism is based on the notion that we are a more stable, prosperous society because we embrace diversity, toleration and acceptance of anything and everything. But is this true?

Five Lessons from the Whiskey Rebellion

David John Marotta

The earliest and first U.S. tax-inspired revolt was the 1791 Whiskey Rebellion. The federal government, just two years old, was $54 million in debt from the American Revolution. Another $25 million was owed by the states. Combined, the debt was the equivalent of $1.975 trillion in today's dollars.

FDR’s Second Bill of Rights

Michael Peroutka

Back in January, 1944, just four years before Walt Kelly's Pogo first appeared, President Franklin Roosevelt, in his annual address to Congress, set the nation on a path that would destroy America as the founders envisioned it. The plan he declared to the nation in that speech was destined, if not designed, to make America its own enemy.

Social Justice: Biblical Principle or Progressive Plank?

Ricki Pepin

Will the real social justice please stand up? How do you find truth within the two very conflicting camps pervading America today on this hot topic? A principle approach comparison of modernism/progressive thinking versus biblical/principled reasoning is in order. Definitions and historical applications will prove to be far more accurate than just parroting some pundit’s opinion.

Confusing Divergence With Adherence

Bob Ellis

How can you defend Christianity when there are so many bad things from within Christendom? What about all the wars in which Christians have fought? What about all the TV preachers who have abused the trust of people who listen to them? What about all the evil and harmful things done by people who call themselves Christians?

You Can’t Tame God

Dave Daubenmire

Population statistics reveal that Muslims make up less than 1% of the American population. Government statistics recently showed that the homosexual population makes up 1.6 % of the American population. Let those numbers sink in. Why do both groups make Christians cower and run for cover?

Not the Pastor America Needs, but the Pastor We Deserve

Steve Deace

From the outside, Joel Osteen lives a life the world covets. There’s just one problem with that. I can’t think of a single truly great figure in the 2,000-year history of Christianity who didn’t pay some kind of worldly price for defending the faith—beginning with Christ himself at the Cross. On the other hand, it seems as if the world is paying Osteen quite handsomely for the self-esteem gospel according to Joel.

Cruz: More RINOs Will Get Hillary Elected

Bob Ellis

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has highlighted the insanity of once more in 2016 allowing the liberal RINO establishment to push candidates on us who have proven they will betray Republican (and American) principles. You know, of course, that Albert Einstein is credited with stating that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

"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
