Government and Sovereignty

| May 20, 2012

History is my most fickle friend, rarely does he respond to the question I ask of him. There are times when the answer I pursue is discovered easily, in the most obvious of places. Then there are those times when the search takes months and years. At other times I go looking for one answer […]

Missing the Mark… WHY?

| May 13, 2012

Last night I posted “Missing the Mark and Meaning of the Revolution“, and this morning I realized I didn’t really get into “why” I think this. If you read the post, you may have an idea, but let me tell you my reasoning. A year and a half ago I discovered that my Great-great-great-great-great grandfather […]

Missing the Mark and Meaning of the Revolution

| May 13, 2012

These days I continue to be amazed at the lack of understanding of the American public, in general, regarding the causes and reasons for the American Revolution. Ask anyone you meet, “Why did we seek independence for England in the American Revolution?” And invariably you will get one of two answers; 1) taxation or 2) […]

USAToday Arms Poll Flawed

| November 21, 2011

This evening I received an email from a friend asking me to vote in a poll posted online by USAToday regarding recent comments by the incompetent and ignorant Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder. (The poll may be found here.) While I agree with the basic premise of her request, I could not […]

Candidate Constitutional Scorecard

| September 15, 2011

For years there have been a deluge of scorecards, report cards and analyses of candidate and congressional members stance based on various positions along the political spectrum. Every election year we can find scorecards judging these men and women grading their conservative records. It doesn’t take long to receive a side-by-side comparison of voting records […]

Constitution 101, Lesson 2 – Is The Constitution A Foundation?

| June 21, 2010

In our continuing study of the Constitution, and after establishing how we must interpret it strictly, I now turn our attention to a very key subject regarding it. In the last 30 or so years, I have only heard one other person discuss this, and that only briefly. In fact, I heard such a brief […]

And Now It’s Our Turn

| May 11, 2010

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” Thus began one of the most famous speeches in the history of the United States. It was by far the shortest “speech” in our history, […]

A Unified Whole

| February 19, 2010

One thing I believe to be utterly important is the way we view the Constitution. Since the late 1800’s lawyers, judges, politicians, the media and educators have tended to chop this miraculous document into little pieces, bite size phrases and meaningless clauses. This is all the result of the shift in the legal profession away […]
