The only reason we’re seeing almost all of the presidential candidates from both parties talking about the 10th amendment and states being able to determine their own marijuana policy is because the people and then the states acted without first getting federal permission.Details
Don’t depend on your political brand to protect your interests. Don’t listen to what politicians say. Watch what they do – and act accordingly.Details
I am an American. I am a disabled Vietnam veteran. I mention that for a couple of reasons. Being a veteran has deeply magnified my appreciation to live in the greatest country in the world. As a veteran I did take an oath to serve and protect the Constitution of the greatest country in the world and as such, I find it unacceptable to expect anything less from any elected representative that also takes an oath to serve and protect the Constitution.
In the beginning almighty God created the heavens and the earth. After a break he created the People. The People eventually created the 13 original colonies that became States. The States then created the Federal government and gave it specific enumerated powers to serve the People and protect their freedom.
You may ask, where does our freedom come from? Well if you were Thomas Jefferson you would answer…”Our freedom comes from our humanity. In that we are created in the image and likeness of God, who is perfectly free, so then are we to be perfectly free.”Details
A good article in the Minnesota post on how some politicians are jumping on the Tenther bandwagon – but aren’t the real deal. No surprise, of course, but nice to see this coverage. Here’s an excerpt: You don’t have to be crazy, stupid or evil to believe that over the years, federal power has grown…Details
Let’s backup a few years. In 1992, people had had enough of the Republican agenda and Democrat Bill Clinton proved to be the candidate that made the most and best sounding promises that resulted in the Best President that money could buy. He also proved to be one of the most immoral presidents. Under Bill…Details
Here’s a great article from last week’s Houston Chronicle, reminding us all why we need a government in the first place. Men, no matter how noble today, can be corrupted in the snake pit known as Washington DC. We can even look to FDR himself in this respect. While governor of New York, Roosevelt touted…Details
That’s a good way to describe almost everyone in D.C. Even those that what the Constitution means seem to forget how to preserve it when they’ve been in office a long time. That’s the subject of an article in the Baltimore Sun last week. Here’s an excerpt: On Nov. 5, Rep. John Boehner of Ohio,…Details
Scott Brown’s victory inspires confidence that no campaign is hopeless for a candidate willing to take a principled stand, maintain a simple and direct message, and reject the preconceptions of conventional wisdom. Such inspiration matters to those of us who struggle against the preconceptions that the Constitution doesn’t mean what the words of the document…Details
No, I am not referring to some mafia family, I am referring to your federal government. There are a lot of similarities between between those in charge in Washington DC, compared with the worst mafias in history.
There are several enterprises that any mafia partakes in; drug trafficking, arms trafficking, loan sharking, control of contracting, and protection/extortion rackets. Sadly, there is not a single criminal activity that the federal government does not partake in.
For starters, there is the protection/extortion racket with the IRS. Someone needs to pay for the empire to fight all these wars to protect, what they call democracy and freedom (they really mean fascism). You should be grateful to have been hand selected at birth to give up half your paycheck when you come of age. Just don’t opt out of their protection services or they will come look for you, and possibly kidnap you.Details
