Russell's Rules vs. Today's Government Rule

Russell’s Rules vs. Today’s Government Rule

This week, on Openculture.com, I stumbled onto a reference of a Bertrand Russell column from 1951. In the New York Times Magazine article, Russell shared his “10 Commandments for a Healthy Democracy”. Now, dismissing for a moment whether he was a classical liberal, a neo-liberal, an English liberal, or American liberal, I would like to […]

The US Needs to Learn About Fighting Terrorism From Norway

The US Needs to Learn About Fighting Terrorism From Norway

Sure, that probably sounds insane. How in the world could Norway know anything about fighting terrorism, right? Maybe not. With the recent shooting in Colorado, there has been some mention of the terrorist in Norway that rocked that nation about a year ago. Unlike the U.S., Norway did not pass sweeping legislation, and radically increase […]

The Perils of Democracy

The Perils of Democracy

In America, it is nearly a ubiquitous truism that ours is a democratic nation. In popular imagination, all virtues spring forth from the fountainhead of democracy, and all vices consist of its aristocratic or reactionary opposition. Yet we were blessed with the founders’ vision to anticipate the instability and capriciousness of mob-majority rule, and our […]

Big Government Incompetence: Pew Study Shows U.S. Voter Registries Totally Corrupt

A recent Pew Study  shows the U.S. voting registry to be a massive failure, including the following facts: There are currently nearly 2 million dead people on active voter registries across America. 1 in 8 voter registrations is invalid or contains major inaccuracies, according to the study. Almost 3 million Americans are currently registered to […]

About That Democracy Plan in Egypt

Two U.S. political activists groups pushing for what is largely an undefined “democracy” in Egypt under the guise of  human rights/ election monitoring [U.S. Government funded]  programs have been told they will not be allowed to leave Egypt recently. The two groups involved are the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute.  (NDI) […]

Why We Should Vote

While some countries do not allow their citizens to vote, Americans are fortunate enough to have that right protected by their founding documents. Unfortunately, there are many who take that right for granted which may some day cost us that freedom. The United States of America is a constitutional republic (and a democracy to a certain extent). […]

Ninety-Nine Percent in America? REALLY??!!

…..speaking of morons… I am conflicted every time I see coverage of these Occupy schlubs. On one hand, like anyone who has actually earned a paycheck, I would like to see most of the them told that they are too old for the sandbox – time to go get a job. On the other hand, I […]

Democracy?

What it Means to Me to Be an American

I found an old paper my father wrote a long time ago – May 1955 to be exact. I knew my father had strong feelings about our country later on in life, but I didn’t really know much about it early on. I am going to share it with all of you – remember this […]

America's New Rulers

As we approach another Independence Day, I reflect on what has made this nation great and fret over the actions being taken that threaten its greatness.  What cold irony it is that we celebrate our independence from one tyrannical ruler only to find ourselves struggling against an entire collection of them. The threat is not […]
