Self-governing individuals are necessary to have a self-governing society. That is, only a moral and disciplined people are capable of being governed by a limited government.…Continue
This isn't the original Declaration, I re wrote the areas making them pertinent to our current circumstances,. I suggest you read the new Declaration and if you agree, copy it sign it and email it to your congressman. I did!
In Tea Party Dot Com On February 13, 2013 We the People write a new Declaration of Independence and hereby serve it upon the Dictator and Chief Barrack Hussein Obama! …
This is a letter that I have drafted based upon my constitutional analyses of Obamacare (found here) and Nullification (found here). My goal is to provide us with a united front to attack this unconstitutional federal attack and defeat…
After a long train of usurpations of power by the federal government, which culminated in legislation known as Obamacare the people took to the streets in protest. The people appealed to the Legislature and were ignored. The legislation ultimately made its way to the Supreme Court. We then witnessed a colossal rewriting of our founding documents in the majority opinion to the Obamacare mandate. …Continue
Last year I taught classes on the Constitution, Our Founding Fathers, Our Founding Principles, The Federal Court System, The Supreme Court, and Judicial Activism. I was struck by how many people want to…Continue

While we listened to a song on the radio, my younger sister, the “kid” still in her fifties, asked me this week if I ever imagined myself actually being sixty four when the Beatles released “When I’m Sixty Four” in 1967. This November I will actually turn sixty-four and as I was all of about 19 when I first heard the song, the answer to the question she asked is “no, I could not then imagine being sixty…Continue

The Birth of Freedom
On the July 4th we will celebrate the birth of this nation when Jefferson's document of Independence was adopted. Although few of them signed it that day, in the end 56 men committed themselves to ending the tyranny of England on the colonies. They risked their own lives by signing the document, we call them the founders, patriots but had we lost all would have been considered traitors. They risked everything, unlike politicians of today who risk…Continue

What a sad day when the Supreme Court loses sight of what the Constitution’s purpose is – to protect the rights of individuals, and not to take them away. Historically, we’ve come to expect this from Congress and the President, but not the…Continue
In their ruling of the Arizona Immigration laws, the Supreme Court declared the “discretion of the federal agents” to be sovereign over the states. In the ruling on the Affordable Healthcare Act, the Supreme Court declared the federal government to be sovereign over the citizens. These rulings have served a nearly fatal blow to the 9th and 10th Amendments of the Constitution. Now, more so than ever, or at least since 1830, the citizens of this nation must stand…Continue
A hyper-Political Correctness movement is running rampant on our public universities, with taxpayer-funded university bureaucrats and teachers trying to crush the First Amendment rights of students to openly express their faith and conservative political views. Students are reaching out to the top nonprofit pro-religious liberty litigators in America and exercise their God-given right to ask their neighbors and an independent judiciary to stop the universities.
For example, Vanderbilt…Continue
In light of all the distortions and half-truths that are constantly repeated, let’s be clear –what sparked the ire of our founders was not taxes; it was tyranny. Their theme was not simply Taxed Enough Already – it was Tyrannized Enough Already. Their tolerance for tyranny was taxed to the max – that’s the taxation the founders could no longer take.
The original tea party was not just about money and the driving force toward American independence was not simply taxation. At the…Continue
There are always both strategic and tactical considerations in all conflicts and it would not be evasive to observe that various minds will perceive different albeit similar and related courses of action.
My focus tends generally to the strategic. This is because of my conviction that excellent tactics in the execution of a flawed strategy are doomed to failure. I like to drill to the core of the matter. Tactically, the…
I am aware that your time is extremely precious, so I will attempt to make this brief, so please, be patient with me.For at least 100 years, We the People have been, and unfortunately still are, facing an increasingly hostile, oppressive, out-of-control, treasonous government through one movement or another (e.g.: the environmental movement, the homosexual movement, the feminist movement, etc.). Like many Americans, I was fast asleep, focused more on who the next Academy Awards winner…Continue

Many of our citizens in these United States of America fear nothing. It’s not because they are especially courageous or totally unaware. No, it’s because many now fear our government, and government, by extended definition, is nothing. Despite the thousands of granite buildings with marble floors and the legions of munchkin-like bureaucrats scurrying through the halls, the government is nothing more than an idea….a concept….a construct….a fabrication created from the minds of men. It is an…Continue

THE AMERICAN CITIZEN
Born or naturalized in a Republic; a government of the people, by the people and for the people, who have given up their position of entitlement to seek their fortunes through Liberty; an open door to opportunity. WHY?
A COUNTRY BASED UPON LIBERTY: To have the right to reach out through opportunities and seek their dreams and many have become rich by doing so, but the vast majority (95%), do nothing beyond a JOB (Jobism-a form of social dependency where people…

for so many responses to the Monday column, ”The National Mindset.” There were
several hundred comments from the various distribution outlets that carry them.
Without getting too far in the weeds, it appears that the reactions were nearly
evenly split. All responses and comments are welcome, but there were a few of
them that seemed especially noteworthy. As a preamble, I see my writing as
something akin to poking a stick into the hornets’…
hand is commonplace in the halls of government power. Our superior elites
continuously dazzle us with their “now you see it, now you don’t” routine of
promises and broken vows. The pathways of United States’ history is littered
with the shards of broken trust as our political masters pledge to be
responsible….and fail, fail again and again. The most glaring recent example is
the so-called “Super Committee.” I’ve witnessed more integrity…
