Celebrity Influence on the Second Amendment

Celebrities who loudly, and quite often, speak out for much stricter gun control, or getting rid of guns altogether, sure do have some impact. It’s a good thing that they get loud and vocal.  Because … American Patriots really do not care one bit for their hypocritical opinions. According to the Washington Examiner, running poll […]

The “Constitutional Orphan” – Our Second Amendment

When it comes to our precious U.S. Constitution, and in particular, the Bill of Rights, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas ripped not only the SCOTUS but also the Federal Circuit Courts for treating the Second Amendment as a “Constitutional Orphan.” Justice Thomas issued a 14-page dissenting opinion when SCOTUS refused to hear a challenge of […]

America’s Founders were quite the characters :)

Our Founding Fathers established a country based on the idea that We the People, through our representatives, are actually in charge of running the government. These boys figured out that continued freedom depended on our citizens remaining informed about how our system of government works. But they were kidding, right? Why else would our educational […]

George Mason – Father of the Bill of Rights

James Madison is the Father of the Constitution and one of our nation’s greatest patriots. From the Federalist Papers to the Presidency, Madison left an indelible imprint on American history. And while Madison is credited as the author of the United States Bill of Rights, the basis for those first ten amendments came from another […]

Founding Fathers on Freedom, Liberty and American Exceptionalism

Our Founding Fathers risked everything they had to create a new nation, the United States of America. Had the American Revolution failed, each of them would have faced execution – and the loss of all their property, which would have condemned their wives and children to a life of poverty. It was a remarkable gamble, […]

Tips on Raising Patriotic Children

If you’re a parent, then nothing is more important than your child. You think about your son and/or daughter every minute of every day. Late at night, you dream of the kind of person he or she will become. Yes, you have your hobbies, personal passions and professional responsibilities, but more likely than not, your […]

Why Do We Need A Constitution?

The United States of America is governed by a written Constitution – which is a landmark legal (as well as a philosophical and political) document that greatly limits the power of government; safeguards certain individual rights, such as freedom of expression and freedom of religion; and establishes a system of “checks and balances” on the […]

Parallels Between Star Wars & Politics Today

With the release of “The Last Jedi,” the media hype-machine for all things Star Wars has made the leap to light-speed faster than the Millennium Falcon could on its best day.  (And the Millennium Falcon is amazingly fast; after all, it made the famed Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs!)  Still, few film franchises […]

Constitutional Harassment

Sexual harassment is an awful, horrible, revolting thing.  There’s absolutely no excuse for it.  As citizens, we should have zero tolerance for predatory sexual behavior – particularly when it comes to our political leaders.  But as disgusting and vile as it is, there’s another form of harassment that ranks up there in disgust: Constitutional harassment. […]

The Above the Law, Double Standard of Politics

It is unfortunate that politicians believe they are above the law.  It is more unfortunate that we allow them to be, and thus believe, that way. There have been far too many instances of a “public servant” (the position they actually occupy) who gets away with virtually anything, whether that comes from their buddies on […]
