The many clichés about everything “new being old” and history repeating itself are manifestly accurate when it comes to the Nation’s politics. An outstanding example of this is the manner in which our political leaders address one of the more difficult domestic problems of our era. The great harm to our society imposed upon us by political parties’ leaderships and their party policies for permitting massive illegal immigration has left us with an almost insoluble dilemma.

What may well be the more critical failure of the Republican Party is its inability to understand what is transpiring under the Administration of President Obama. The progressive leadership of the Democrat Party, led by Barack Obama, is succeeding in attaining their quest for a total change of our Nation from a Constitutional Republic, accommodating our traditional economic system of free-market capitalism, into a state socialist regime mandating state welfare socialism.
The policies pursued by our Tea Party activists will never be adopted by the Democrat Party, which has abandoned fiscal responsibility to embark upon a militantly “progressive” agenda of circumventing our Republic’s Constitution in favor of a government imposing collective socialism upon us. In what now is a two party system, this leaves the Republican Party as the only established political engine which we have to support Tea Party policies of reform and restoring our personal liberty.…Continue
Watching TV news broadcasts this last week, we’ve been subjected to a never ending party propaganda that evil Republicans “want to end Medicare as we know it.” Led by the President, this threat is a regurgitation of an old Democrat Party fear program to scare seniors and their families so as to cast Democrat votes. It has worked every time it’s been used. …Continue

As the 2012 crucial election progresses, the Democrat Senate leadership has abandoned scheduling proposals to address our many growing fiscal problems and our impending “taxageddon;” and, at the request of the President, has prioritized a legislative attempt to change our Constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court in a recent political campaign financing decision. The Court having ruled that corporations were “persons” for purposes of political speech, they now possess the…Continue

Any who follow the actions of our federal government must now accept the fact that there is no official announcement of that vast establishment that may be relied upon as accurate. Its many agencies, departments and commissions have political party operatives imbedded as management over the professional bureaucrats, and these appointed political party surrogates answer exclusively to their party, thus acting no longer as “public servants,” but as just political party hacks.

Increasingly depressed entering into perhaps the most important Presidential election in the history of this young Nation, I fear the Republican Party has selected another McCain as their candidate. Governor Romney continues to be almost impotent in his feeble attempts to stay on message of important matters and respond to the usual duplicitous campaign attacks of the unscrupulous professional Obama sophists.
As a recent example, President Obama can’t discuss jobs or the economy, as…Continue
The decision of the U S Supreme Court on the constitutionality of “Obamacare” is a wonder to behold! The crucial issue was whether Congress had the power, as claimed under the “Commerce Clause,” to individually mandate that our citizens, not engaged in interstate commerce, must enter into such interstate commerce and, as a result, be vulnerable to having Congress regulate such forced “involvement” in said commerce. Chief…Continue
While Liberty can be easily defined, it is a much more difficult concept to understand and even more elusive to appreciate. Indeed, it appears full appreciation is available only to those who have suffered the absence of such a blessing. This observation would explain the supreme value placed upon personal freedom by our Founding Forefathers, in undertaking a bloody revolution and establishing this new independent Nation, and the phenomena of many today not hesitating in abandoning their…Continue

We are being informed about our further impending and substantial Defense Department budget reductions, even while the continued hostilities against our Nation waged by the many terrorist groups of radical Islam have not diminished, and the overall external threat to our society remains high. But the financial status of our bankrupt Nation mandates drastic total spending reductions, and, thus, defense spending is scheduled to be further curtailed.
However, history discloses…Continue

Are those the drums of war we again hear becoming louder in our Nation’s Capitol? Is our Nation flirting with escalations of foreign intrigue and bellicose utterances? Quoting the great pin-striped philosopher, Yogi Berra, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you could end up somewhere different!”
Dispensing with absurd political sophistry such as the Clintonesque rhetoric, “It depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is,” or statements that “acts of hostilities are not warfare,” war is…Continue

The inordinate concerns and turmoil being experienced over the future of our Nation have roots deep within the fundamental principles and purposes of our federal government system. In the 1780s, the United States Constitutional Republic which our forefathers created was both entirely unique and revolutionary. With citizens almost exclusively of European heritage, and thus emanating from a culture of royal despots ruling over their subjects, Americans conversely professed individual liberty…Continue

From the very declaration of our independence, this Nation has been unique and has accomplished remarkable things. Our people strive to achieve success and to perfect what we undertake. Sadly, this also has applied to government corruption, which we have perfected until it has now been institutionalized. Political corruption is simply any dishonest exploitation of government power for personal gain or impropriety. While it may present itself in many variations, its operative elements…Continue
