The Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment II:  “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” It isn’t a matter of whether the government bureaucrats and politicians understand the phrase “shall not be infringed” or not, but rather a ...

Are Americans Ready?

It should be quite obvious to clear minded people who are paying attention that the left-wing agenda is single-party “progressive” rule in perpetuity.  Economic viability, domestic security, national sovereignty, individual Liberties and adherence to Constitutional principles are all secondary to this ultimate goal.

We, the Steadfast Guardians of Liberty

Everywhere around us it appears the ties that bind us together as Americans are unraveling. The value of freedom that formed us as a people and provided us with unity of purpose, and consequentially allowed for civil and sensible national discourse, has been utterly severed.

Taking the Constitution on Offense

Last week, Misfit Politics posted a video tribute to honor the passing of Andrew Breitbart.  In it, Brandon Morse said that, for the first time ever conservatism is going on the offense… and he couldn’t be more right.  Over the last few years we’ve learned a few things and gotten organized.  All you have to do now is talk to ...

In case you missed it, on Tuesday night after Rick Santorum finished speaking Markos Moultisas sent out a series of tweets that seemed like they were designed to prove that he understands absolutely nothing about our Constitution.  It was almost surreal.

Have we reversed the Constitution?

It’s pretty obvious at this point that our country is headed in the wrong direction.  And with a little perspective, it’s just as obvious why.  Over the last few decades, in many ways we have actually allowed our politicians to reverse the Constitution.

The Republican Party must reclaim its mantle as the party that expands freedom. The GOP has a deep history of promoting liberty, both at home and abroad, and it must draw on this legacy to gain moral strength and clarity of vision. The party should thus distinguish itself from the progressive Democrat Party if it wants to regain the trust ...

History Tells Us We Are Headed For Tyranny

Do our politicians understand why they are passing laws?

“[T]he end of law is, not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom.” John Locke, The Second Treatise of Government The purpose of making laws isn’t to prevent people from doing something, it’s to maximize their freedom.  The proper role of government is to protect our God-given rights** – so the laws passed by governments should make ...

Freedom of Religion? Not According to the Obama Administration

The Obama administration has once again shown its arrogance and total disregard for the Constitution. In an edict sent out two weeks ago, the administration said every insurance plan would be required to pay for sterilization and abortion on demand, and will not be allowed to charge co-pays or fees. The Catholic Church would be required to provide these services ...
