Aristocracy – Elitists – The Same

| July 1, 2016

Neglect of the principles of the constitution by the public functionary is a substitution of aristocracy, for a representative democracy: such a person no longer regards himself as the trustee, and agent of the people, but as a ruler whose authority is independent of the people, to whom he holds himself in no manner accountable; […]

R U Thinking – Or Just Repeating?

| October 24, 2012

History is such a fickle friend, companion and “lover”! You think you get to know her and then, BOOM! You find out she led you astray. You “learn” something. It “sounds” good. It “looks” good, then, BAM! You listen to, or even read something written by someone you think you can trust, only to discover, […]

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) […]

Another Jefferson Diamond

| March 27, 2012

Recently on facebook “The Federalist Papers” posted a quote often attributed to Thomas Jefferson. I, in turn, “shared” the post and received a few comments on it from my friends. These comments, and my insatiable curiosity drove me to investigate the quote and read its original source, if I could. Almost immediately I discovered the […]

Indefinite Vs Defined Sovereignty

| March 13, 2012

Weekly, daily I am amazed by what can be discovered when one investigates history. History is a veritable treasure trove of fascinating gems just waiting for the diligent seeker to uncover. If we, and by we I mean all of us, the People, the politicians, the educators and the judges would simply make the effort […]

Modern Federal Tyranny

| March 12, 2012

Much is said today about the original intent of the founding fathers, both Federalists and Anti-Federalist, in the drafting of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. For me this chasm becomes larger and more obvious with each new discovery from the pages of history. Then the sense of disgust, shock, dismay and antagonism grows with […]

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 […]

Unheeded Warnings – Dire consequences – Part 3

| July 30, 2011

The eyes of all America and the world are turned towards Washington these past few weeks. The American debt crisis has finally garnered the attention it should have decades ago. Congress and the Federal Government have written checks that “we the people” and the States can no longer endure. Additionally, Standard and Poors and Moody’s […]
