US Constitution: Transitioning Our First Amendment from Freedom of Religion to Freedom to Worship

United Nations

> Freedom of Thought or Consciousness is dangerous to a free society. It can be used to suppress religious institutions free to exercise their religion. The practice suppresses the First Amendment and promotes Article 18 of the Declaration of Human Rights. Freedom to Worship aligns with Freedom of Religion but they are actually on opposing ends of the spectrum. For ...

Karl Rove: The GOP’s Progressive Woodrow Wilson

  “Architect” Karl Rove is a progressive disaster to the Republican Party: He’s pushing to destroy the Tea Party and American conservatism in order to install his version of politics that mirrors Woodrow Wilson. There’s not much difference between Wilson and Rove: Wilson wanted control over the Democrat Party and the American people abiding by his will.  Rove is doing ...

Mr. President: If you had a son … ?

Have you wondered why there’s an inexplicably dead silence among media and politicians when it comes to America’s fatherless children? The discussion is always about “women’s rights” or “a woman’s right to choose” or the struggles of “single mothers.” A politician’s rhetoric is as if children are the lone conception thus responsibility of immaculately impregnated women. The seemingly few men ...

A Citizen Challenge

Chances are you haven’t heard (and won’t hear) about this Federal report from the Liberal media. Two days ago the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) released its Annual Audit of the United States Government for fiscal years 2011 – 2012. The government’s own conclusion is this: “… Absent policy changes – the Federal Government continues to face an unsustainable fiscal ...

Illogical Extremism of the left

Recent events prove beyond reasonable doubt that members of the institutionalized “progressive” left are more than enthusiastic about attacking guns and gun owners. True to their Alinsky roots, they are ready, willing and eager to demonize gun owners and Second Amendment proponents by disparagingly using the term “gun lobby” to describe them.  It is no secret that they are openly ...

“Progressive” Gun Control

The Second Amendment is not about hunting.  It is about the Right of the American people to prevent the likes of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Diane Feinstein, Andrew Cuomo et al from obtaining unrestrained power. It is about the power of the people to prevent their being rounded up and put in gulags and/or concentration camps. The American people are ...

The Progressives Push For New “Assault” Weapons Ban Is Bad Policy

I stand firm with my fellow members at the National Rifle Association.  I couldn’t be more proud to be part of an organization that defends the Second Amendment, which is one of the most important rights within our Constitution.  Over the past forty-eight hours, the NRA has been slammed for being somehow complicit in the various incidents connected gun violence – ...

I’m waiting for liberals to make their own 47 percent comment on guns

In the wake of the Newtown shootings, the left is clamoring for more gun control.  They want to ban assault weapons – which is liberal speak for scary guns – and do something about high-capacity magazines because they incentivize us to be mean, vicious, and violent.  However, as John Fund noted in National Review, it’s time to talk about the mental ...

Abject union thuggery

We’ve all seen the video of the Lansing, Michigan union protests.  They’re mad that Gov. Rick Snyder passed a right-to-work law, which would curtail the power unions have in the state.  It’s Wisconsin reloaded.  However, the level of thuggery and violence has reached a whole new level.  Union supporters thought that they could really make a difference in this debate ...

Repeat after me: gun control isn’t the answer

The tragedy in Newton, CT should shake us all to our very core. Of the 26 who were killed yesterday, 20 of them were children. It’s evil. It’s grotesque. And I’m sure many mothers and fathers were holding their children a little tighter last night. Sadly, for twenty families, that will no longer be possible. Our thoughts and prayers should ...

Jim DeMint – Change in Washington Can Only Come From the Outside

Great conservatives like Marco Rubio, Mike Lee and Rand Paul can only be topped with a Senate majority. If so, it won’t be with Senator DeMint as he moves to the Heritage Foundation. The true fight in engaging Washington and politics in general is from the outside. …you cannot change Washington from the inside. You can only change it from ...

The Lonely Position of Neutral

I hate raising taxes.  I find high tax rates immoral.  However, we lost the election.  An increase in revenue is inevitable.  What’s perverse about this whole episode is that if we fall off the cliff – Democrats will get everything they want. They’ll get their tax increases, their revenue, and defense cuts.  They would complete their decade-long project of ending ...

Tea Party-Unite

With the re-election of Barack Obama and the continuation of Harry Reid’s reign of terror in the U.S. Senate, these are dark times for America. For America to survive, Americans must save it.  Expressions to the contrary notwithstanding, Americans reside within the Tea Party. Members of the Tea Party must stop their infighting turf wars if they ever hope to ...

Justice Alito Stresses Federalism As Refuge from Usurpatory Government

  With the Supreme Court and the future of constitutional government in doubt, it’s always reassuring to hear from the voices who espouse those views.  I’m an ardent optimist.  I have faith that the electorate will correct their decisions made on Nov. 6, and constrain this president’s pernicious agenda of implementing a hyper-regulatory progressive state.  The Federalist Society’s 30th Anniversary ...

Sen. Mike Lee and Senator-Elect Ted Cruz: ‘Our Ideas Work, Their Ideas Don’t’

Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Senator-Elect Ted Cruz (R-TX) were adamant about two things when they addressed The Federalist Society’s discussion about constitutional law and the Supreme Court yesterday: “our [conservative] ideas work, their [ liberal] ideas don’t.”  Furthermore, our ideas have been winning the argument, which explains why law schools are limiting the amount of speakers – invited by ...
