SCOTUS Decision on Prayer is a Disaster, Not a Deliverance

SCOTUS Decision on Prayer is a Disaster, Not a Deliverance

Many Christians and Christian groups and even churches and church leaders are celebrating the recent Supreme Court ruling in a case known as Town Board of Greece, New York v. Galloway. Given the totality of the circumstances, however, I believe that this conventional wisdom is anything but wise. In fact, I believe it to be the essence of foolishness.

Unlawful Acts of Congress are not Binding on Your Country

Acts of Congress are not always binding on the states. When are they binding? Simply stated, they only are binding if they are lawful, that is when they do not conflict with the Constitution and with the Law of Nature and Nature’s God. When they are not lawful, they are “pretended legislation,” and the States are supposed to declare them as null and void and of no effect in the state.

The Constitution and Federal Property

Except for the small amount of land listed in the Constitution, it is clear that the federal government is not supposed to own property within the United States.

The Rightful Remedy

Two hundred thirty years after the Founders won American independence from a tyrannical monarch, the inheritors of their estate are facing a hard reality: liberty is jealously defended or it is lost.

Would We the People Ratify the Constitution Today?

Would We the People Ratify the Constitution Today?

We the People are the opening words of the preamble to the Constitution. Many patriots glory in that name, “We the People” holding it aloft as a banner against the encroachments of an ever expanding central government.

Mark Levin’s ‘Liberty’ Amendments: Legalizing Tyranny

For 100 years, the federal government has usurped powers not delegated to it in our Constitution. What should we do about it?

The Constitution is Not a Self-Enforcing Document

Although the Constitution is the supreme law of our land and provides limits on the powers and authorities of our federal, state and local governments, its words cannot and will not leap off the page and enforce themselves. The common folk of America must be the champions of their own liberty.

Imagine you and I are strolling down the street one fine day on our way to have a nice lunch and we come across a woman who is truly destitute. Imagine also that you just cashed a check and you know, and I know, that you have $200.00 in your pocket. Now imagine that I decide that you should give the $200.00 dollars to the woman.
