The Seeds of Revolution

    The seeds of revolution are planted and watered by government tyranny.  It is the inherent nature of government to grow and assume more and more power.  This is not new but has existed from the beginning. The limit of government power is determined by what the people are willing to tolerate.  People, especially the people who founded this nation correctly understood that the rights of | Read More »

    A New Face for a New America

    It has been my privilege to live under 12 presidents.  Because they were all human, they all had faults.  Even Ronald Reagan, who I consider to be one of the best presidents of my lifetime, had his own shortcomings.  To expect a man or woman to be perfect in any area is to expect the impossible.  It is equally impossible to believe that a president | Read More »

    An Open Letter to Senators Corker and Alexander

    December 22, 2010 Tennessee is a great state which has sent some outstanding statesmen to Washington.  Unfortunately, the two of you are not among them.  You have proven yourself to have the spine of a jelly fish, the mouth of an alligator, and the brain of a mocking bird.  However, mistakes can be rectified and in 2012 and 2014 “We the People” will rectify our | Read More »

    Tea Time in America

    Just over 400 years ago, on April 27, 1607, three small ships arrived off the coast of the “New World.” Captain Edward Wingfield selected a small island about 40 miles up a river as the most defensible location for the new colony. The new colony was given the name of Jamestown. The three ships which had crossed an ocean to bring these first settlers were | Read More »

    A Letter to the National Republican Senatorial Committee

    You clowns still don’t get it! Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in many years.  He has shown us the face of evil and of socialism.  He has drawn our attention to what is going on in Washington, and We the People have had all we are going to take.  We are going to take back our country, and guess what?  | Read More »

    The Grey-Haired Brigade

    They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs.  Some of us are “baby boomer” getting ready to retire.  Others have been retired for some time.  We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were.  We have worked hard, raised our children, worshipped our God and grown old | Read More »

    A Post-Christian America

    It is an indisputable fact that when all light is removed only darkness remains.  It is equally indisputable that when all good is removed only evil remains.  The land of the free and home of the brave is now in serious jeopardy of ceasing to be a beacon of freedom for the world and descending forever into a land of darkness.   In addition, the Gospel | Read More »

    A LAND CALLED AMERICA – PART 4

    From 1781 until 1789 the thirteen colonies were governed by the “Articles of Confederation,” which soon proved to be insufficient for governing the young nation.
