The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse. — James Madison, speech in the Virginia constitutional convention, December 2, 1829

How to Defeat the Left: Understand the Enemy

Bob Ellis

I plan to share a few excerpts from David Horowitz' new book "Take No Prisoners: The Battle Plan for Defeating the Left." over the coming days, in the hopes that Republicans and conservatives might become enlightened--or at least more informed--about the nature of our current conflict, that they will buy a copy of the book, and read it...and then get to work.

Should Christians Be Politically Active?

Gina Miller

Are some correct in their claim that Christians should not be politically active? This is a question with which many Christians have struggled, due to the lack of overt New Testament admonitions to do so. Yet how many Christians throughout history, inspired by the fire of God’s Word in their spirits, have stood firmly against evil actions by civil governments? Were they wrong?

George Washington Condemns the Modern GOP

Bob Ellis

As I was reading and reflecting on George Washington's Farewell Address of 1796 today, it hit me like a soft ton of bricks how prescient President Washington was some 218 years ago. He warned against and soundly condemned the behavior that has unfortunately become the very heart and soul of the "Republican" agenda today.

Lefty and Righty’s ‘Fake Fight’

Michael Peroutka

You notice two men fighting in your front yard. They are pushing and shoving and punching each other as they stumble up your driveway. Shouting and cursing at each other, they crash through your front door and continue the mayhem right into your living room. Suddenly, from another part of the house, you hear a thud of a door slamming and you realize with horror that while you were distracted by the fake fight in the front room, someone has made it out the back door with the contents of your safe, everything that you have ever worked for.

Thinking Reasonably Part 2

Dale Pflug

Did you ever have someone tell you that something was too political, or that they hate to discuss politics? If you mention the word politics, you will probably offend at least one person in any group. To shut off a conversation, just say “sorry, but I don’t talk about politics”.

Thinking Reasonably, Part 1

Dale Pflug

Maybe people just don't know appreciate the importance of argument. The British Parliament is a wonderful example of how to argue. Sometimes fistfights even break out! You might call that "argument with style". Let's start with Webster's definition of the word itself. "Argument: a statement, reason, or fact for or against a point. An address or composition intended to convince or persuade". When you go back to the United States Founding Fathers, they were skilled users of argument.

An Open Letter to the Next Generation of Patriots

Steve Deace

It is the harmonic convergence of faith (your principles) and reason (tactics) that creates political success. If your principles/tactics are in conflict with one another you’re doing it wrong. When they complement one another you’re doing it right. If you don’t learn this lesson before it’s too late you become either “grump guy” or “groupie guy.”

…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.

Christian Coalition Publishes Flawed, Incomplete Voter Guide

Bob Ellis

The Christian Coalition emailed me about their 2014 voter guides today. I can't speak to all of them, but the one for South Dakota is flawed and incomplete...an apparent trend among voter guides and endorsements from conservative groups this year.

The Larceny Is Larger than You Think!

Michael Peroutka

Last week the mayor of Houston enraged many Christians when the city subpoenaed the sermons of some Houston area pastors. This got me to thinking…Suppose you wake up tomorrow morning, walk downstairs and find a thief in your living room rifling through your furniture.

We Need a Leaner, Smarter Justice System

Ken Connor

We need a sensible, pragmatic, and effective sentencing process. As with so many failed policies hanging around America's neck like so many millstones, the current system is a result of politics being put ahead of practical wisdom. It is possible to be tough on crime, to protect the American people from the bad guys while using our limited resources wisely and effectively.

GOP Already Waving ObamaCare Surrender Flag

Bob Ellis

The "Republicans" aren't wasting any time in waving the ObamaCare surrender flag. They can't even wait to (hopefully) get control of the U.S. Senate before they start surrendering (Hint: they already started surrendering to ObamaCare, long ago).

Homosexual Movement Is Deadly To Our Natural Rights

Gina Miller

Perhaps the most diabolical advancement of Barack Obama’s tyrannical, anti-American agenda is in the area of the radical homosexual movement. From militant homosexual activists, we have seen a full-frontal assault on the rights of Christians and others who oppose the campaign to force on America the acceptance of special “rights” for sexual deviants and the destruction of the definition of marriage.

"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
