The game of Monopoly debuted in 1935 during a time of financial recovery after a steep economic downturn called the Depression from which we’ve never really recovered since government intervention created the Depression and every economic downturn since.

As we seek to dismantle the “Messianic Welfare State,” we must not remain complacent and feel excused in our dependency on the “Messianic Bank.” In America, just as “sex sells,” debt sells. Debt has been made sexy and promotes itself as if obtaining it is inevitable to survive. Sadly, professing Christians in America have bought […]
As we watch gospel personalities criticize groups who are both spreading awareness for the immediate abolition of human abortion and calling the evangelical church to repent of its apathy (like R. C. Sproul, Sr. has courageously done), it will be helpful to put things in perspective. Here, history can be of great service, although I […]
Perhaps you’ve heard of the latest Federal taxes imposed on tobacco. This unprecedented tax hike will fund health insurance for poor children, and will also help deter smoking as a public health measure. Sounds great as marketed to the public, but as a Christian, I vehemently oppose this nonsense, and I would like to tell you why, as a Christian, you should, too.
Every once in a while you meet that guy who just totally disarms all the arguments of the welfarists, welfare statists, socialists, poverty-linists, wage-gappists, etc. In this case, this guy also explodes every excuse used by many Christians as to why things like public schooling are necessary. As an example of how Christians should practice […]
Breitbart related a story yesterday perfectly spun as liberal government persecution of conservatives and Christians: “Obama to force faith-based grant recipients to hire LGBTs.” It opens, The Obama Administration is poised to require faith-based recipients of federal grants to accept applications from LGBT individuals, according to a report published today by the Center for Family and Human […]
What I have suspected and stated for some time now has been confirmed in hard numbers by George Barna: pastors know and believe that the Bible speaks to social and political issues, but are afraid to preach about it from the pulpit. In times past, writers like me have been condemned for “attributing motives” on […]
A main theme running through my “Restoring America” project is that of inviting government tyranny by taking government money. We call this “taking the cheese.” When we take the cheese, the trap slams down. Unfortunately, this principle is ignored throughout American government at all levels. The progressive tyranny we’ve witnessed in American history has been […]

Restoring America One County at a Time Chapter 6: Money and Banking 6.1 What Freedom in Money and Banking Looks Like Money is one of those things that we today can rarely mentally separate from government. Printing money, coining coins, and regulating banks, it seems, are simply things governments do, and most people cannot remember […]
The average American and most Christians have grown up with a “smorgasbord theology.” As a result, they can no longer tell the real from the counterfeit. The writer to the Hebrew Christians describes this mind-set. He stops in mid-thought, wanting to explain the priesthood of Jesus and how it is similar to the priesthood of […]
On May 17, David Laws, the new British government’s Chief Secretary to the Treasury, walked into his office. There on the desk was a note from the previous holder of this high office, Liam Byrne, who had departed along with Gordon Brown’s Labour Party cabinet.
