Democracy Under Attack from Boardroom, Courtroom

PayPal, as an entity, has the freedom to locate wherever they like, and we wouldn’t presume to tell them otherwise. However, when they seek to punish North Carolina for enacting a law regulating their own facilities, barring transgendered people or anybody else from using opposite sex bathrooms and locker rooms in public schools and other government buildings, PayPal are engaging in small-scale economic imperialism.

Climate Change: What Should Government Do?

Climate Change: What Should Government Do?

If climate change were to exist, “What should the government do?” As law-abiding Americans who care about the rule of law, we should first look to our nation’s highest law, the U.S. Constitution, to see what government should do about it.

What Happened to ‘Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death’?

The Constitution has been steadily chipped away at, undermined, eroded, whittled down, and generally discarded to such an extent that what we are left with today is but a shadow of the robust document adopted more than two centuries ago.

Public School says No Prayer; Students do it Anyway, Secularist Baffled

President George Washington made a claim with respect to “religion and morality” stating, “In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.”

Does the Sun Set in the West?

If we aren’t dead already, we certainly qualify for a suicide watch as we stick our head in a demographic noose, deny our own values and allow a minority of central planners to plan our own funeral and send our grandchildren the bill. Every day must eventually end and we may be witnessing the sun setting in the West.

We Need More of Moore

We Need More of Moore

This past Sunday Chris Wallace interviewed Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore. Chief Justice Moore is once again in the news for standing up for the rule of law, limited government, and the viability of the Constitution as a meaningful document, as opposed to a Living Document that means whatever the nine black robed oligarchs say it means.

How Do We Get Back to Where We Were?

How Do We Get Back to Where We Were?

It’s hard to be a conservative when there’s little left to conserve. The increasing pace of America’s progression from free markets to a command economy has reached such a pace and become so obvious that way back in 2009, the Russian Prime Minister used his spotlight time at the World Economic Forum to warn America not to follow the socialist path. The Russian newspaper Pravda, once the leading communist voice on earth published an article entitled, “American capitalism gone with a whimper.”

States Can Fight Back Against Leftist Tyranny

States Can Fight Back Against Leftist Tyranny

As this recent report from Fox News indicates, the attack on religious freedom in the United States continues with the edict against Colorado baker Jack Phillips. Homosexual activists are attempting to violate his religious freedom, seeking to force him to bake a cake for a counterfeit wedding, and indoctrinate himself and his employees with the propaganda that counterfeit marriage is equal to a real marriage. But South Carolina is being proactive about defending marriage, and other states can and should follow.

How to Balance the Budget

How to Balance the Budget

In a recent conversation, a member of Congress told me that he thought the original Constitution was flawed because it did not require a balanced federal budget. Therefore, he was in favor of a Balanced Budget Amendment and saw this as a way to limit the runaway spending of the Congress. I bring up this conversation as an example of what you might call “over-looking the obvious”—or “not being able to see the forest because all the trees are in the way.”

The Uncivil War

In American schools the Civil War is a one trick pony. It was all about slavery and that is all it was about. There can be no doubt that slavery was a blight upon the history of the United States. However, slavery was not the only issue at stake in the Civil War. There was one other that took center stage in the minds of many: State’s Rights.
