The Obamacare Gamble
The Obamacare debacle clearly illustrates the idiocy of allowing the federal government to control 1/6 of our economy and dictate our healthcare. The stakes are always higher when so many of us place so much of our lives in the hand of so few. The odds that we will all suffer calamity are always greater then. This is why the Framers of our Constitution (remember | Read More »
I swear to put every other nation and their citizens first and to defend their rights at the expense of Americans
According to a Reuters’ poll 60% of Americans strongly oppose intervention in Syria. I’m not surprised since American life, liberty or property have not been attacked. I sympathize with foreigners who are oppressed and killed by their governments as I’m sure many Americans do, but the law is the law and it doesn’t permit the President to unilaterally commit our nation to war when Americans have not | Read More »
Are there more than just two limits on eminent domain?
The City of Richmond, California is seriously considering using eminent domain to provide mortgage relief to homeowners, but I seriously doubt the Constitution allows such action. After all, if a government seizes a lender’s stake in a home mortgage loan to give the homeowner relief from meeting his full obligation under that mortgage contract by using the power of eminent domain, then how is that not | Read More »
Welcome to our idiocracy.
“The years passed, mankind became more amoral and stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes that social engineering would correct this trend in the devolution of our culture, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.” Tomorrow the sun will rise, but if this election proves anything, it is that we are truly in the | Read More »
The debate question Romney can’t answer?
Ed Kilgore at DC Monthly says President Obama should ask Mitt Romney this killer question for which (Ed thinks) there is no good comeback. This is the debate question Romney can’t answer: “Governor Romney, how exactly do your economic policies differ from those of George W. Bush?” Liberals are so dumb. I would love to be asked that question. Here’s my comeback: “Honestly Mr. President, I’m still | Read More »
Was Romney fair in calling out victims?
A couple of weeks ago, Mitt Romney took a lot of flack for a video recording that showed him saying something to the effect that many of the 47% who don’t pay income taxes see themselves as victims. In response to this video, many on the Left complained: How could he say something like this? How could he be so insensitive? Mr. Romney has already stated that | Read More »
GM Bailout or Sellout, You be the Judge
Contrary to the liberal media, GM and Chrysler went bankrupt under Obama’s leadership. However, a structured bankruptcy does not mean a company is going out business. In fact, the point of a structured bankruptcy is to keep the business going. Both Obama and Romney supported a structured bankruptcy for GM and Chrysler, neither wanted those companies to go out of business, and both wanted to | Read More »
Unborn Human Beings as Legal Persons
Liberals often complain about the legal precedent set in Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad (1886) that corporations are considered people under the law. This is a sign from their Occupy Wall Street demonstrations: My response to them is that when they’re ready to agree that unborn human beings are people under the law, I’ll agree corporations should not be. And hey, by their | Read More »
Redistribution, Unemployment, and Dependency: How Democrats Increased the Gap Between Rich and Poor:
Most of us know better than to spoil our kids or to feed the bears because it creates dependency and only leads them to disrespect us in the end. We don’t do these things because we don’t want a mouthy forty year-old “kid” thinking he/she can live in our basement, or we don’t want to wake up to find our garbage scatter in our yard | Read More »
A Fair Share
“Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute.” That was said by an American named Robert Goodloe Harper a little over two hundred years ago. Although, I rather like Andy Taylor’s version: “Millions for Charity, but not one penny for tribute.” (a.k.a. Andy Griffith in ‘Opie and the Bully,’ 1961) Which makes me wonder, when does a tax rise to the level of being | Read More »
Obama vs. Reagan on Entrepreneurs and Government
President Obama recently said, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” In saying this, I believe the President was seeking to belittle the great risk, sacrifice, and initiative of entrepreneurs and to indebt them to the government in order to build an argument that they owe us all something for the invaluable aid the government lent them, and they | Read More »
“Lawless” seems to be the Obama administration’s new campaign slogan. After the Arizona court ruling, the Obama administration announces more selective enforcement of U.S. law: It will only respond to certain types of illegal immigrant referrals from state law enforcement authorities thus signally to foreigners that U.S. borders unlike every other nation in the world don’t exist that they are all free to come in | Read More »
Same-Sex Marriage is an Oxymoron
Judeo-Christian tradition going back many thousands of years teaches us that yellow and blue combined together become green; one entirely new color. However, Liberals today are trying to sell us the proposition that yellow and yellow can make green and that blue and blue can make green. I for one am not buying it. I love all colors, but I have more sense than that.
The Problem with Ann Coulter is that She is Inconsistent
In this article, Coulter says basically that states can establish a religion (respecting the establishment of religion); and therefore that the establishment clause of the 1st amendment does not limit their power, but earleir in the same article she said the free exercise clause of the 1st amendment does limit the power of the states. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the | Read More »
Another Sad Day for the Rule of Law
Today Leader Obama has once again disregarded the Constitution and established law. This time by appointing officials to offices without Senate confirmation when the Senate is not in recess ( a clear violation of law), basically saying again, “F – You America I don’t need no stink’n limits to my authoritah; I wipe my butt with your silly Constitution.” Andrew Johnson was impeached for | Read More »
Why I can’t support Santorum: National Activist vs. Constitutional Conservative
I see Santorum as being more a national activist than a constitutional conservative. Some might even call him a statist when it comes to his ideas about what is right and wrong. Being more a national activist than a constitutional conservative means Santorum is willing to impose his one size fits all ideals upon the whole country through the national government regardless of what the Constitution | Read More »

Occupy the Senate
It’s ironic that the U.S. House passed a 1 year payroll tax holiday December 13, but did they skip town daring their counterparts in the Senate to pass it or suffer the wrath of the electorate? No, that’s what the Senate did though. They passed only a 2 month version of the tax holiday, and then they went home for the holidays before the work | Read More »

This is the third of the several amendments to our Constitution I’m hoping Santa will magically bring me this year in order to restore limits to our national government so that I can tell my kids with a straight face that two principles of our Constitution are the ideas of limited government and federalism.

Newt wants to give up our liberties for alleged security?
A friend of mine, and I guess someone who is now leaning towards Ron Paul, told me that Newt wants to give up our liberties for alleged security. He sent me this link and warned that Newt supports the patriot act. http://www.ology.com/politics/ron-paul-newt-gingrich-clash-over-patriot-act-video Honestly, the Patriot Act has been on the books, for what 10 years, and I don’t feel any less free.

A Path to a Flatter Tax
Phase 1: (the length of time in each phase is as yet unspecified) Give people the choice between: Paying a 20% modified flat tax with generous exemptions for all and for those earning under $500,000 certain favored deductions, or Paying the old progressive tax. Adopt a parallel program of reducing government expenditures. Phase 2: Exorcise all refundable credits (ACTC, EIC, etc.) from the old progressive tax code | Read More »
