Time for GA to Become the Second AZ
It’s time for GA to take a close look at protecting the rights of its citizens that the US Government will not defend as constitutionally mandated. (H/T Hotair.com) For those of you who have read more Jefferson than you have the US Constitution, the first clause of the first amendment actually says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the | Read More »
Twentieth Century Conservative, Twenty First Century Extremist.
We are all pretty much used to the tactics of the left, and I mean left, not liberal or Democrat. The verbal abuse, the exaggeration, the revision of history, not to mention the occasional criminal damage or assault. You get acclimatized to it after a while and accept it as part of the course. There is one thing that really gets to me though, being | Read More »

When I got to speak to the group I asked them why we, in the form of the states, were not dealing with the problem directly under Art. V of the Constitution in | Read More »
Is there a Right to Healthcare?
According to long established tradition in the English common law, and as explained by the eminent Blackstone, the three rights in the Declaration of Independence are as follows. Life is the right to live, intact with one’s limbs, eyes, and organs. Any physical damage that cripples or removes a limb, or eyes, or kills one violates this right. This definition was important because according to | Read More »
The Declaration of Grievances and Resolves
While I had been thinking about something like this for several weeks, the document that follows was very much inspired by Nessa’s diary of a few days ago. I’m not declaring it to be the official RedState Resolves (I’m fairly certain that Erick Erickson and the rest of the Mods would have something to say about that!). This is intended as my statement of Grievances | Read More »

What Is A Right and Does Health Care Belong in That Discussion?
Recent political discussion has brought up the concept of the “right to health care”. It is the view of some folks that If there is something you need, you have a right to it. In order to have a “right”, first you need to understand what is meant by a right. Let’s start with this example: if you are hungry, do you have a right | Read More »
ATF: All Your Amendment are Belong to Us
As far as the ATF is concerned, the words in the Constitution don’t mean what the Founders said they mean. They mean what the 9 unelected judges on the Supreme Court say they mean. Well, until they change their mind, that is. This year, Montana and Tennessee passed the “Firearms Freedom Act” – which under state law exempts firearms, parts and ammunition from federal regulation under | Read More »

Health care is not a right
Health care is not a right. The topic came up again last night on Hannity. Hannity had a very interesting Great American Panel last night. Bob Beckel, Redstate’s own Erick Erickson, and singer/Playboy model Aubrey O’Day were the guests. After discussing a program that U.S. tax dollars are funding in Africa that provides sex education to 5-year olds, the talked turned to health care. O’Day | Read More »
Ron Paul Idiots with Guns
These guys in Arizona, particularly the one with the loaded Ar-15 strapped to his back in a crowd of people will likely hand us the biggest setback in gun rights once an accident happens. When I saw the story about the Ron Paul nuts parading around the protests the first thing I thought of was a seven year old kid reaching up to “play” with | Read More »
Texting and Driving: Chance for Libertarian Conservatism to Assert Itself.
With all the big ticket items on the docket, some of the smaller issues may slip through. This is justifiable. There is no issue more important than health care right now and resources are limited. But the Senate introduced a bill banning texting and driving today. Here. And I think conservatives can make a little hay out of it, especially in libertarian-minded states. There are | Read More »

While a little late and lacking an official position against her, the National Rifle Association has expressed its “very strong concerns” with the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the United States Supreme Court.
