Striving for hypocrisy

There’s another furor over another “unilateral” ObamaCare mandate delay. This just shows what a dictator Obama is. He rewrites the law at his own whim. Shameful. Unprecedented. Problem is, G. W. Bush did exactly the same thing. No one said a word. Problem is, the authority to make such changes has been written into IRS […]

Executive tyranny: how freedom was lost
Jan 19, 2012

There is certainly no limit to the tyranny of an Executive who has both the ambition and opportunity. There is certainly enough to show how a once freer America has been subdued. This has come primarily through three key Executive powers in this country: the Treaty-making power, the abuse of executive orders, and the ascendancy of government-by-emergency.

The Warfare-Welfare State: Hell on Earth
Dec 29, 2011

The Warfare-Welfare State The curse of the Total State, as we have seen, is something of a package deal. Samuel’s warnings in 1 Samuel 8 were meant to deter the people from breaking God’s laws revealed in Deuteronomy 17—lusting for a “king like other nations.” And just like the king forbidden in those laws—the king […]

Why Leftists should Shut Up about “Dominionism”
Sep 29, 2011

“Dominionism” is getting a lot of press these days—and understandably so. Anytime a conservative even rustles the pages of a Bible, a leftist will try to accuse him of planning a new Inquisition, holocaust, and terrorism, hating all Jews, blacks, and women, and for being against science as well as just plain stupid. For leftists, […]

Restoring America One County at a Time Chapter 2: Welfare 2.2 How Freedom was Lost in America We have seen how matters of human welfare in a free society should only stem from the legal institution of the family and private insurance arrangements. And we have seen, now, how that’s the way it used to […]

Beware of Mr. Fix-It Politicians Going to Washington

It’s been said that history repeats itself. Take, for example, the supposed freakish parallels between the assassinations of presidents Lincoln and Kennedy. Abraham Lincoln was first elected to Congress in 1846. John Kennedy followed exactly 100 years later. Lincoln was elected President of the United States in 1860. Kennedy was elected President in 1960. After […]

Warnings from Two Respected Analysts
Jul 27, 2010

Two widely respected economic commentators, Harvard’s Niall Ferguson and Nassim “black swan” Taleb, have offered highly pessimistic assessments of what lies ahead for the American economy. Information like this is widely ignored by investors in weeks when they have decided that nothing can stop them: they will get rich by investing in the American stock […]

From Hope to Barely Holding On
Jun 29, 2010

The recession that began in December 2007 produced a change in Americans’ perception of their economic future.  They moved from the tradition of hope to one of just barely hanging on.  I have never seen this before.  Only someone born around 1910 can recall anything like it, assuming that he recalls anything at all. My […]
