The Democrats’ War on Babies


After years in the political closet, the abortion debate is back in full swing, as Texas passed a restriction on abortion before the 20th week of pregnancy.  The “pro-choice” crowd staged their usual vile protests, complete with used tampons and jars of feces and urine to hurl at pro-life legislators all while shouting “Hail Satan”Continue reading “The Democrats’ War on Babies”

The Boston Massacre and the Constitution


A little more than 243 years after the Boston Massacre of 1770, the city of Boston faced another violent incident, this time carried out, not by a foreign army, but by two fanatical immigrant Muslims, in an apparent sleeper cell, upset about the American wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.   They, like many of their radicalContinue reading “The Boston Massacre and the Constitution”

Happy Birthday, Mr. Jefferson


On April 13, those of us who love liberty and value the ideals of the American Revolution should reflect on the 270th birthday of Thomas Jefferson, one of our greatest presidents. After penning the words of the Declaration of Independence, and serving in a variety of public offices, Jefferson stood for election to the presidencyContinue reading “Happy Birthday, Mr. Jefferson”

The Problem with Gun Control


“Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.”  So said Plato, some 400 years before the birth of Christ.  It is wisdom we should pay close attention to, for it seems that the latest mass shooting in Connecticut will lead toContinue reading “The Problem with Gun Control”

It’s Time for the States to Strike Back


During his tenure as president, George Washington visited the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. When asked if he would call upon the new chief executive, Governor John Hancock is reputed to have said, “I am the highest ranking public official in the state and he should call on me.”  The humble Washington did so. Today, every timeContinue reading “It’s Time for the States to Strike Back”

The United States of Authoritarianism


“Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid,” Abraham Lincoln said in 1855.  “As a nation, we began by declaring that ‘all men are created equal.’  We now practically read it ‘all men are created equal, except negroes.’  Soon it will read ‘all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, andContinue reading “The United States of Authoritarianism”

A New Slogan for the People: We Refuse!


American history is filled with slogans.  Our independence was forged, you might say, because of a powerful mantra that rang out across the colonies:  “No taxation without representation!”  It was on the lips of nearly every American who believed in liberty.  In light of our betrayal by the Supreme Court on the Obamacare bill, IContinue reading “A New Slogan for the People: We Refuse!”

A Historical Take on the New Gun Debate


It seems that every time some nut goes on a shooting spree, politicians crank up the tried-and-true gun control argument.  The recent Colorado killings gave liberals yet more ammunition (pardon the pun) to threaten our sacred gun rights. What many politicians seem to have forgotten, if they ever knew to start with, is that ourContinue reading “A Historical Take on the New Gun Debate”

The Impending Police State


“Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety,” wrote Benjamin Franklin in 1755, “deserve neither liberty nor safety.”  We don’t deserve either, he felt, because we will have neither. Americans today seem to be doing just that, giving up our cherished rights as free men and women, with little resistance,Continue reading “The Impending Police State”

The Dangers of a Cashless Society


Many conservatives and civil libertarians erroneously believed that the implementation of the ObamaCare bill would be the final nail in the coffin of a free society, which is why President Obama spent a full year trying so hard to implement it.  But I respectfully disagree.  Though it is part of the same big government scheme,Continue reading “The Dangers of a Cashless Society”
