Confederated States

| May 30, 2013

While much has been said in recent years regarding the nature of the early American Republic, much has remained hidden or even unspoken. As I continue my tutelage under the writings of St. George Tucker I uncover more and more wisdom from this shining light of the first generation of Americans that has been hidden […]

| 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.

The Modern Divine Right of Kings

| August 21, 2012

For the past few months I have been allowing a few ideas to pollinate, seed, sprout some roots and grow before just spouting off. Now I have some of these ready to write, so you will see some new articles in the coming days. Also, I’ve been bouncing the ideas and concepts off of my […]

| June 1, 2012

If you can read all of this post without getting angry, infuriated, nauseated and motivated to see a revolution this year in the ballot box, then you have no passion or love for this country. This evening I was out eating, and I must say I will never go back to that establishment again. Now, […]

How Far We Have Fallen!

| March 5, 2012

Recently, on another forum, I was asked a question about the origin of the phrase “separation of Church and State.” As a part of answering the question, and desiring to quote Jefferson directly, I found the text of his letter online at the Library of Congress. (Click here to be taken to that letter.) When […]

History’s Challenge

| September 11, 2011

For almost thirty years, now, I have been like a man possessed when it comes to issues surrounding American and US Constitutional histories. Engage me in conversation and I can carry on for hours.

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 […]
