“A Republic, if you can keep it.” Donald Trump and the Tyranny of the Mob…

By 126 Comments 4,184 views

  For the last eight years I’ve been shaking my head, simply bewildered that so many Americans could be so insane as to vote for Barack Obama for president. Not surprisingly, once Obama was ensconced in the White House things played out pretty much as predicted with virtually every month bringing new news of a… Read more »

The coming Armageddon – Donald Trump may be the match, but the GOP set the kindling…

Absent a political earthquake, Donald Trump will be the GOP’s nominee for President of the United States. It is possible that he won’t, but the odds are long. His nomination will set the nation on a disastrous course that is only partly – and a small part at that – of his making. When Donald… Read more »

Trump voters in 2016 are not so different from Obama voters in 2008… Here’s why

If Donald Trump gets the GOP nod against Hillary or Bernie, I’m voting for Donald. Frankly, after watching the debate on Saturday night I’d probably want to take a shower after pulling the lever for him, but pull it I would… That being said, Saturday’s debate demonstrated Donald Trump to not only be a rude… Read more »

Immigrants, Slaves, Redistribution and a Cult of Personality: Barack Obama and the Last Days of the Roman Republic

By 8 Comments 1,438 views

Late last year I started listening to the History of Rome app. While functionally terrible, content wise it’s quite good. Having been many years since I read Roman history, it’s a welcome refresher for those things I’ve forgotten and an education for many more I never learned in the first place. It’s an extraordinary history,… Read more »

Gratitude at Christmastime… For our Freedom of Speech

By 1 Comment 774 views

Christmas is, among other things, a time for gratitude. Gratitude of course comes in many shapes and sizes. Some people feel gratitude for family, others for health, others for prosperity and some for all of those things and more and no doubt some for much less. Whatever one’s situation here in the United States, we,… Read more »

Why Culture Matters: The Natural State of Man is One of Poverty, Scarcity and Conflict

By 13 Comments 1,535 views

One of my favorite teachers in high school was Mr. Kelly. Ostensibly he was a reading teacher, but his interests were far more inclined towards history and cultures. We once got into a discussion about the great cultures throughout history. The obvious names came up… the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Romans, Aztecs, ancient China etc…. Read more »

Pies, Free Markets and the American Experiment

By 1 Comment 1,520 views

I’ve often used the phrase “when I’m rich” followed by, “I’m going to do X and Y and Z”. Anyone hearing me say that could certainly be forgiven for thinking my primary motivation is to grow my bank account just for the sake of filling it up. In reality however nothing could be farther from… Read more »

The eight year reign of Barack Obama will go down as the most important in American history since Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln led the United States at the single most important decision point in its history. At stake was no less than the question of whether the country would continue as a single nation or would… Read more »

In 1776 the 13 American colonies declared independence from just such a tyrant.

Barack Obama’s Amnesty won’t be legal, but it will likely be permanent…

By 11 Comments 896 views

Sometime over the course of the next week Barack Obama is likely going grant amnesty to millions of people who are in the United States illegally. He’s doing this very much against the will of an overwhelming majority of American people. Not only do polls show that Americans are 3 to 1 against his giving… Read more »
