Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Canadian Healthcare "In Ruins"

Indoctrination at Zero to Five

Socialists have been after our children at younger and younger ages for years.

Paul Broun (R-GA) introduced HJR 89, the Marriage Protection Amendment, to the U.S. House to define what people used to understand and take for granted: that marriage is between a man and a woman.

Family Values are Down the Narrow Path

Preserving the American Dream

I’m less than enthusiastic about John Mccain. But the portrait of America shown in this video…woooooo! That’s beautiful! That’s what makes America great! That’s real!

SCOTUS Upholds the Right of the People

June 26, 2008 will probably not soon resonate with the same significance and clarity as July 4, 1776, but perhaps it should. Today the rights of a free people, above the vagaries of a political class, have been reasserted and affirmed. We the People will be ruled only by God and ourselves, and when elected […]

Statistical Bait and Switch for Socialism

GUEST COLUMN BY ANTON KAISER Capitalism is all about competition, so Americans love top ten lists, especially if those lists compare states. Not only are we often nationalists but also regionalists.

Marines – They’re Always There

As a 10-year veteran of the United States Air Force, I wasn’t a Marine. But I got the chance to work alongside several Marines on several occasions. As proud as I am of my own military branch, I thank God for the United States Marines. I sleep better knowing they’re on duty. Classy, succinct and […]
