From CBS affiliate WTVR.com in Richmond: Delegate Harvey Morgan, a Republican from the 98th district, is introducing legislation that would give more patients access to medical marijuana, as long as they had a doctor’s prescription. This could be another positive step toward ending decades of incredibly costly and embarrassingly futile prohibition efforts, at least in…Details
Where do we go from here? In a world where the constitution seems to have lost it’s power to restrain the Federal Government from constant encroachments on state sovereignties, it seems a daunting task to restore the proper balance. In this article, I intend to explore a fantasy of sorts and contrast it to the…Details
I enjoyed this video by whitetuber – hope you do too
They sign an oath to uphold the Constitution – and they claim authority to do just about anything, but yet, they refuse to even cite where they get this authority in the Constitution.
Why? Because it doesn’t exist.
In a recent letter to the editor, Sean Lowrie asks the essential question: We are debating health care nationally yet we don’t ask the central questions of liberty. Ask what is the cost, ask who will pay, ask what regulations and panels there will be, but never forget to ask “does this jive with liberty?”…Details

Now the Obama administration is pushing ahead with plans to require every American to purchase health insurance. Doesn’t that also violate the…Details

Although I don’t expect the state sovereignty movement to get a fair hearing over at Daily Kos, the total historical ignorance and vacuous credulity of some liberals never ceases to amaze me.
A recent post, which purports to offer intellectual firepower capable of refuting the arguments of “tenthers,” essentially states that “Everything the federal government does is constitutional because the federal government says so.”
Obviously Medicare, Social Security, and the Air Force (yes, I’ve had tenthers tell me the Air Force is unconstitutional) are legal because we’ve had them for decades without being struck down by the Supreme Court.

Except that the Constitution explicitly did not grant the federal government authority to do anything beyond its enumerated powers, and what was necessary and proper to exercise its enumerated powers. That would by definition render both Medicare and Social Security (the Air Force being a red herring) unconstitutional.Details
