Statist or Constitutionalist »

Which type of government do you want? That is the question that confronts American politics today. Do we want Statist or a Constitutionalist government? What is the difference between them? A Constitutionalist wants the limited government that lives by the checks and balances in our Constitution. A Statist believes that our Constitution is a “living document” and it can be used to justify the creation of any government program imaginable. …

The 2010 Election What it was, what it is & what it will be »

What the election of 2010 was, was the people of this country telling our elected officials two things about their “solutions” to our problems 1) they don’t work and 2) they actually make our problems worse! Government programs in the long run do not work. They are at best a temporary fix to our problems. The primary purpose of the temporary fix is to get the politicians who created them …

What is government's role in social programs? »

A former Bush administration official, Michael Gerson, threw that idea out in the November issue of Christianity Today in support of the welfare state. That might explain why Gerson’s great, great grandchildren will not be U.S. citizens. Following this strategy, there will not be a United States.

“The mainstream Christian reflection has concluded that government has an important role in pursuing the common good,” he says. “It plays an important …

What is government's role in social programs? Part I »

There is no question society has a responsibility to care for the poor and needy. Both major religions and governments recognize this. However, in these days of gazillion dollar deficits and the need for budget control.

Five hundred years before Christ, the Jews were instructed not to oppress the poor as they showed mercy and compassion. About 600 years later, the Christian church required Paul to remember the poor as …

It Seems Obama had a REASON for omitting Creator »

In only 34 days, Obama has managed to eliminate any reference to “Creator” from any recitation made of the Declaration of Independence. America’s framers designed a concept, that all men have been “endowed by their Creator” with “certain unalienable rights,” including “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” But in 3 separate occasions in that period, Obama eliminated any reference to a “Creator”.

The real answer may be a little …

Freedom of Speech 101 »

When I began traversing the blog world in 2004 it was commonly argued that the Internet was the last bastion of free speech.  If this argument regarding mainstream media “bias” holds true, then it makes sense that the blogosphere plays home to the last vestiges of communication liberty.  After all, it isn’t like most of us bloggers are actually pulling in a salary and benefits for typing about what we…

Supremes reinforce secularization in government school programs »

The U.S. Supreme Court banned the first amendment from government schools Oct. 4. In its refusal to hear an appeal of Stratechuk v. Board of Education, South Orange-Maplewood School District, the high court upheld a ruling that religious songs have no place in public school holiday performances.

Jeanne Harris Kills Democracy »

As the midterm elections draw near, millions of voters will bemoan their choices and decry that they are resigned to choose the “lesser of two evils.” But how did it come to that? Where are all the honorable, ethical, respectful political representatives dedicating a few years of their lives to public service? Well I can tell you. Jeanne Harris killed them in their infancy.

Ok, to be fair, Jeanne Harris …

What the GOP Pledge Reflects and Why We Need To Stand By It »

            When the Pledge to America was first announced, it immediately met backlash from the other side of the aisle. President Obama began a tour dedicated specifically to breaking down the plan’s items one by one.  While to many political strategists, this response may be seen as politics as usual, there are many holes in the argument that show his plans and the plans of his liberal followers may be sinking …

Obama’s FCC Pushes its Unauthorized Internet Agenda »

By Seton Motley John Eggerton of Broadcasting & Cable reported:

The Federal Communications Commission-FCC is issuing a public notice to “improve the FCC’s understanding of business broadband needs,” calling it the “next step” advancing the FCC’s small business broadband agenda.   Only one problem with this FCC assertion.  They’re not supposed to have a small business broadband agenda.  Or a broadband agenda.  Or any sort of Internet agenda at all.  The …
