Check and Mate
According to Zach Taylor an outspoken former Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent who is the chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, “As the government allocates resources to South Texas, it is systematically leaving areas within the U.S., as well as vast swaths of land along the border, unguarded.” Taylor continues, “This gives people that are trying to get their infrastructure, their | Read More »
Why Have a Bill of Rights ?
In any free society that area of life which is left to the sole discretion of the individual includes all actions that are not specifically forbidden by a general law. In our nation when it came time for the ratification of the Constitution it would have been impossible to gain the votes needed if the backers of a centralized national government had not promised that | Read More »

Why Gridlock is a Good Thing
Gridlock is one of the greatest blessings bestowed upon us by the Framers. It is a natural result of the checks and balances built into the system to stop any temporary majority from fundamentally changing the country. If it wasn’t for the checks and balances FDR would have completely socialized the country back in the 1930s. If it wasn’t for them now BHO would simply | Read More »
Why Do We Obey?
How can a law be illegitimate? Isn’t this an oxymoronic question? It is a question that brings us to the concept that there can be a difference between what is legal and what is right. This is the debate between those who believe in Legal Positivism and those who believe in Natural Rights. Legal positivists “believe that the only legitimate sources of law are those | Read More »
To understand why liberty is imperiled in our country today we must first state clearly and unequivocally what is liberty. Then and only then can we understand what is necessary for its preservation as well as see what is undermining it today. Liberty is the absence of coercion and the freedom to act upon your own will within the perimeters of not infringing the freedom | Read More »
Why Do They Lie to Us?

Why Are the Republicans Committing Suicide?
With what could be a wave election on the horizon in November due to the unpopularity of Obamacare, why is the Republican leadership raising the white flag? With the end result being a perpetual Democrat lock on the White House if amnesty brings tens of million illegals out of the shadows and into the voter booths, why is the Republican leadership ridiculing those who oppose | Read More »
Why Did We Write it in the First Place ?
Besides regulating the division of authority, constitutions written to limit government must contain substantive rules. They need to establish general principles which will govern the specific acts of the legislature. Therefore the essence of a constitution involves not only a hierarchy of power and authority it also establishes a hierarchy of laws. The founding principles built into the structure of the document itself are of | Read More »
Would We the People Ratify the Constitution Today?
We the People are the opening words of the preamble to the Constitution. Many patriots glory in that name, “We the People” holding it aloft as a banner against the encroachments of an ever expanding central government. In the minds of many it is connected somehow to Lincoln’s famous description of America’s government, “Of the People, by the people and for the people.” Both of | Read More »
