“We the people” adopted a written Constitution precisely because it has a fixed meaning, a meaning that does not change. Otherwise we would have adopted the British approach of an unwritten, evolving constitution. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, American Enterprise Institute speech, Feb 16, 2001

…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.

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.

Tax Cronyism in the States

Bob Ellis

The American Legislative Exchange Council has released a report on tax cronyism, and it's going on to some degree in pretty much every state. Tax cronyism is public policy designed to benefit certain industries or individuals instead of society in general. And it costs us all.

A Vision of Achievement for America

What can I really add to this excellent Afterburner from Bill Whittle?  The current generation(s) of Americans have no vision of excellence and achievement for us as a people.

A List of Obama Lawlessness

Bob Ellis

I was just made aware today that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has compiled a list of 76 examples of lawless behavior by President Barack Obama. Not all of them rise to the level of an impeachable offense, but more than a few could easily form a list of justifications to impeach this lawless imperial president.

Chief Justice Roberts on ObamaCare: What Will He Do?

Robert Romano

With the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals issuing contradictory rulings on the question of whether Obamacare exchange subsidies can be given in states that decided to not set up their own exchanges under an IRS regulation, it appears all but inevitable that the case will ultimately wind up in the Supreme Court.

Out of the Closet: Anti-Capitalist Environmentalists

Bob Ellis

Though the Marxist roots and motivations of the global warming crowd was evident a long time ago, it still doesn't hurt to see fresh evidence that global warming hysteria is far more about promoting Marxism and far less about stopping an unscientific hoax of a "crisis." As the Daily Caller reports, 130 environmentalist groups have come all the way out of the closet to call for an end to capitalism.

"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
