Let us abide by the Constitution as it is written or amend it in the constitutional mode if it is found defective. — President Andrew Jackson, Farewell Speech, March 4, 1837

…And The Pulpits Are Silent

Dave Daubenmire

Despite what the political parties would like you to believe, the problem in America is not the politicians, it is the pulpits. I hate to break the news to you, but most of America’s pulpits are filled with cowardly men. They are a shame to the Christ they claim to serve.

Play to Win, or Don’t Bother

Bob Ellis

Steve Deace has a great column at BarbWire, and it exposes...the lack of seriousness and dereliction of duty on the part of Christians and conservatives. You see, we on the Right face an enemy that understands we are in a war of good and evil (and they are Hell-bent on pursuing evil); they aren't fooled (by their own propaganda aimed at us) that politics is a game, or a social exercise, or a sport, or a friendly disagreement about how to get things done.

No Political Fix to America’s Death Spiral

J. Matt Barber

I’m never going to win a popularity contest. It’s not my goal to be liked. I’ll probably never be a “Fox News contributor” or even broadly recognized as a dutifully compliant cog within the greater, GOP-heavy “conservative” political wheel. That’s because I say things like this: There is no political fix to America’s death spiral.

When the News is Busted

When the news is so often bad, we could all use a laugh. Let's laugh about the news a little...

A Poetic Perspective on Politics, Social Media and the Military

A.J. Castellitto

Fundamental transformation Almost complete, You plot, you position, you sow, you reap, Children and wife are by your side? But will you sleep tonight, A change of course A guilty plea, It’s not too late to make amends

Political Party Poison

Derek Howell

Thomas Jefferson, in his draft of the Kentucky Resolutions, explained “[i]n questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” Can we honestly say that our contemporary elected representatives, comprised of Democrats and Republicans, in Washington, D.C., are bound from their mischievous actions “by the chains of the Constitution”? No, it appears that the chains have been broken.

Political means don’t achieve moral ends

Star Parker

Despite our obsession with political systems and processes, the quality of our lives ultimately flows from the behavior of individual human beings and not from any meticulously designed political system. The best any political system can do is to assure political freedom. But it cannot assure what individuals choose to do with their freedom and the values that will define their lives.

Predictions for 2014 = 2013²

JD Longstreet

Pundits, so I am told, on or about, December 31st, are expected to make predictions for the coming year. Normally, I don't do this, preferring to make all sort of wild predictions throughout the year, most of which turn out to totally wrong. Howsoever, never let it be said I did not do my part to muddy the future waters of the new year 2014.

Political Wars: The Establishment Strikes Back

Robert Romano

If 2013 was any indication, 2014 and subsequent years will see the continuation of institutional retaliation against not only the tea party, but of a wider anti-establishment sentiment prevalent on both the political right and left.

Five Things More Important Than Politics

David John Marotta

Politics is the art of governing or the practice of exercising control over a community. What separates political control from simple persuasion is the threat or use of force. Most people don't think much about the tyrannical nature of politics when force is combined with the thousands of pages of federal law on the books. Every law limits our freedom. For the oppressed in the society, it matters little if the rule of the government is based on the divine right of kings or a 51% majority of one political party.

Devalued Border Sovereignty

Tom Toth

The apathetic responses to each of the crises from the last couple weeks reveals a trend showing exactly what Barack Obama thinks — or, rather, doesn’t think — about the value of border sovereignty. Whether it's Ukraine's borders, Israel's borders, or the borders of the United States, President Obama sees little value in the sovereignty of national borders.

Chipotle’s Wisdom

David John Marotta

The marketing people at Chipotle Mexican Grill have a new promotional idea called "cultivating thought." They invited selected authors to write something designed to be read in two minutes. These pieces are printed on the sides of Chipotle takeout bags as well as drink cups.

The Narrow Way (Ode to Pilgrim)

Israel: The Palestinian People’s Greatest Ally

J. Matt Barber

Israel is not tame. But she is good. If a poacher shoots arrows at a pride of sleeping lions, are the lions to blame for rousing and defending themselves? What does one say of the shooter when he intentionally cowers behind the skirts of his own women and daughters, hoping, indeed praying, that these precious souls will inadvertently perish as a result? One calls him a coward, a fool and a monster.

The IDF continues to search for hidden terror tunnels in the Gaza Strip, used by Hamas to carry out attacks on Israelis.

The Darkening World of Intolerance

Victor Sharpe

We are witnessing Arab and Muslim war crimes in a never ending spiral of horror inflicted upon Israel’s civilian population as endless salvos of missiles fired by the Hamas occupiers of Gaza rein down upon Israeli villages, towns and cities - and the world yawns. But then, remarkably, it awakens when the Jews have the unmitigated gall, temerity and chutzpah to defend themselves.

"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
