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 […]

Single Issue Voters

| August 15, 2011

Much has been, and is said about people who vote on the basis of single issues. In the mass media it is primarily those individuals and groups the focus on the issue of abortion, but we should also consider those on the liberal side who do the same thing. There are those who have a […]

Unheeded Warnings – Dire consequences – Part 2

| July 15, 2011

But, if I may even flatter myself, that they may be productive of some partial benefit, some occasional good; that they may now and then recur to moderate the fury of party spirit, to warn against the mischiefs of foreign intrigue, to guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism; this hope will be a full […]

Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right

| June 3, 2011

The conversation, and I use that term loosely, usually began something like this: “David, don’t hit (kick, bite, scratch, push, shove, yell at, you get the picture) your brother!” “But Mom/Dad, he hit (kicked, bit, pushed, etc., etc.) me first!” “David, you’re the older one and you should know better.” OR “David, two wrongs don’t […]

The Supreme Court’s Abdication

| May 6, 2011

Last month, April 2011, the Supreme Court refused to “fast track” the State of Virginia’s request regarding its suit against Obamacare. Since we have been brainwashed to accept the federal appeal process through the various District Courts, the Courts of Appeal and then finally to the Supreme Court itself. To the American public, in general, […]

Bills of Rights – A Comparison

| May 3, 2011

Throughout the history of man there have been times when groups of men, citizens and leaders felt it necessary to record for posterity a listing of rights, and the responsibilities of national governments. Recently I have been involved in some discussions regarding the American Bill of Rights. Last night it came to mind that I […]

It’s About The Constitution, Stupid

| April 11, 2011

When the current Congress took office in January, the House of Representatives initiated a rather unique first action, to read the Constitution and all of its Amendments from the House floor. While this was a nice gesture, we now see that it was a totally symbolic act and held almost no meaning to the majority […]

Convenient Conservatives

| January 5, 2011

Those who have read my past posts here are very aware of my passion, love and adherence to the US Constitution. It is this love and passion which drives, motivates and empowers by political position and conservative perspectives. Over the years conversations invariably gravitate towards American government and history with friends and acquaintances. In this […]

Stupidity In The Supreme Court!

| December 13, 2010

Well, well, well, once again the nation is subjected to the stupidity of at least one justice occupying a seat on the Supreme Court. This morning, December 12th, 2010, Justice Stephen Breyer appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and spewed his idiotic misconstruction of American history and in specific the history of the Constitution and the […]

Where’s the Judicial Chutzpah?

| August 6, 2010

This country’s political system was established with the principle of “checks and balances” built within it. According to the Founding Fathers each of the three branches of government were supposed to check the others. You have the power of Presidential vetoes of Legislative acts and Congressional overrides of those vetoes. It was also intended that the […]
