The American Pharisees

Today I wrote that the the progressive “revolution” is a coward’s revolution – that it came in on little cat’s feet and late after sundown. It was as unseeable as a ghost and as quiet as a lover’s whisper. Many people asked reasonable questions – how did we get here without noticing? How did so…

The Coward’s Revolution

Revolution has come to America. The average citizen would be excused for not noticing – but it has come. It didn’t come with force of arms, explosions, civil war or an invasion (at least not in the sense of a D-Day style clash of Allied bodies against the Nazi wall on the shores of France).…

Memes and Media Talking Points

When I hear the term, “damsel in distress”, I conjure up a virgin maiden tied to a post, screaming her head off because A) she’s about to become a frightening dragon’s meal, and B) she knows damn well he prefers Virgin Flambé. After trying to convince my youngest sister of the reasons not to vote…

Corruption is a Choice

“Among a people generally corrupt, liberty cannot long exist.” ~ Edmund Burke As I see it, with every passing day America’s problem becomes more and more apparent. America’s problem is that it is governed by people who cannot govern themselves. America was not founded in some pristine, Utopian era of human perfection, quite the contrary…

Choosing Between Stupid and Evil

“This example reads to us the salutary lesson, that private fortunes are destroyed by public as well as by private extravagance. And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for a second; that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of…

Contract Review

When it comes to debate about “progressive” vs. classic liberal ideals, especially funding them, there is always a discussion about the “social contract”, or what an individual owes to society in recompense for what society provides and as a buffer to assist the less fortunate. Wikipedia defines the social contract: The social contract or political…

Just Say No to Minoritarianism in 2016

Undoubtedly, tyranny will increase under either a Trump or a Clinton administration. It is unavoidable but in a somewhat curious twist, the increase will not necessarily be a function of the policies of either candidate. It is simply the result of a process that has been ongoing for many political cycles. However, this time we…

Who Controls Whom?

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.” ~ Ben Franklin The ultimate irony is this – in the country purportedly offering the greatest individual liberty in the history of mankind, we are locked in a pitched battle over who we want to take our money…

Quick Shot on Capitalism

Capitalism is the only system that creates economic efficiency as value is created. When not distorted by external forces, capital flows to areas of need where it can be most effectively used to create that value. It causes organizations to employ human capital and raw materials in just the right amount to produce value at…

Liberty Has Become a Commodity

I was once optimistic that America could save itself by leveraging a return to the brilliant system designed by brilliant minds in the years following 1776 – but with each passing day, I get more and more pessimistic that the ship can be righted by those conventional means. Liberty has become a commodity the productive…

You Democrats Owe Nixon And Reagan An Apology

If you are a Democrat or Democrat Party supporter, you owe Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan an apology!  You pointed your hypocritical fingers at Nixon over Watergate, yet you look the other way or even protect Hillary and her email/classified documents scandal.  You pointed your hypocritical finders at Reagan for the Iran Contract Scandal, but…

Safety in Numbers

Collectivism (progressivism) depends on the anonymity of being a member of a crowd. Crowds will do things an individual never would. The old saying “There is safety in numbers” is never more true than in the political arena.   If an individual comes up to you on the street and demands your wallet, that constitutes…
