Liberty and happiness have a powerful enemy on each hand; on the one hand tyranny, on the other licentiousness [anarchy]. To guard against the latter, it is necessary to give the proper powers to government; and to guard against the former, it is necessary that those powers should be properly distributed. — James Wilson, Founder and signer of the Declaration and Constitution

Some True Thanksgiving

Bob Ellis

As Godless liberalism has gained ascendancy in America and our heritage has been whitewashed, many Americans don't know some important facts about our nation's Christian history. Ben Shapiro at the Revolting Truth shares some important history about Thanksgiving--so important, there wouldn't have BEEN a first Thanksgiving without these truths.

How our Federal Constitution ‘Secures’ our God Given Rights

Publius Huldah

Our Declaration of Independence says the Creator God endowed us with Rights, and that the purpose of government is to “secure” the Rights God gave us. What does this mean? How does a government go about “securing” God given rights?

The Assaults of Firecrackers, Murderers, and Odious Songs

Victor Sharpe

The Jewish faith has bestowed many wondrous divine blessings upon the world. Among them is, of course, the Sabbath day. It should be with a sense of horror and utter distress that the world should know that Muslim Arabs in Jerusalem deliberately and maliciously desecrate the peace on the eve of every Jewish Sabbath.

The People’s Choice

Dale Pflug

The latest polls indicate that 70% of Americans believe that our country is headed in the wrong direction. Those that claim to understand the polls would have us believe there will be a major change of political party control as a result. But that doesn’t mean a major change in the direction of the country. If recent history is any indicator, the political party in control does not accurately reflect the true desires of the people. A change in political party control similarly will have little to do with changing the country’s direction.

Are There Any Bravehearts Left in America?

Bradlee Dean

What if you woke up this morning, opened up the newspaper or turned on the TV to your local news channel and saw this: “The Obama administration has been found criminal and corrupt. Impeachment will take place this week, and all administrative officials who have continuously broken the laws of our constitutional republic will be tried, convicted and brought to justice.

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.

Ferguson: Good Lessons Available for the Taking

Rick Manning

In an unheard appeal for calm in the wake of a Grand Jury’s decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in what was determined to be a justifiable shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., President Barack Obama urged that we learn lessons from the tragedy. But what lessons will be learned?

Liberty Versus Comfort

Ken Connor

For decades, liberal society has been obsessed with multiculturalism and tolerance. Generations of children have been raised to believe that it's good to accept everyone, celebrate differences, avoid value judgments, and affirm "authenticity" in all its forms. "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll die defending your right to say it" has been the credo of liberal societies the world over. In recent years, however, the notion of what it means to be "tolerant" has changed radically. Now, instead of merely tolerating my neighbor's differences, I must refrain from saying, doing, or even thinking anything that threatens my neighbor's ideology or makes him/her feel "uncomfortable."

A Truly Thankful Remnant

David Pepe

In light of our nation's godlessness, abounding moral relativistic thinking and secularism there is still a remnant throughout this nation today that still chooses to follow Almighty God and knows His Son as their personal Savior as the Holy Scriptures so teach. They are thankful daily for all that Almighty God has provided for them and they are found throughout the social classes today.

Ferguson: Seeking Justice in an Immoral World

Bob Ellis

The news has now hit the streets that the grand jury in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of "gentle giant" Michael Brown has examined the evidence, and rejected five offered charges against Officer Darren Wilson. So the logical response of the Left is to burn the city of Ferguson to the ground. That's what happens in a nation whose god is its belly.

"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
