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
On March 2, 2012 I gave a legal analysis of HR347/S1794 (which included some links to frightening government abuses) and how it unquestionably violates the First Amendment. Upon hearing numerous reports the following week, I realized that the people are not getting the whole truth.

Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has caused a great deal of controversy. Congressmen all over the nation have defended their vote in favor of these sections in spite of the criticism that these sections allow the President to detain US Citizens indefinitely.

It is clear that our Congressmen believe that the pesky Constitution severely limits them in their noble efforts to keep us poor defenseless little citizens safe. Members of Congress vehemently defended their vote for NDAA by stating that…Continue
The National Defense Authorization Act's latest consequence is the "modification" of the conditions for receiving imminent danger pay. How much money will this save the government?

Pay close attention. This is how it…Continue

Allow me to draw your attention to a very relevant article that was just posted on the Oath Keepers website. Oath Keepers are current and former military, law enforcement, reserves, national guard, firefighters and "just plain citizens" who either have or are willing to take an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God". Members of this group pledge that,…Continue

The new spending bill passed by Congress has a provision to defund enforcement of the incandescent light bulb until October 1, 2012. This is being hailed as a victory for the Republican party. As usual, I have some questions concerning this "victory".
