Independence Day and what it means to all Americans

It is unfortunate that, for many Americans, Independence Day has simply become a holiday known as July 4th, and revolves around a gathering of family and friends with food and fireworks. There have been various polls over the years and a couple of interesting videos that point out the declining knowledge of Americans as to […]

Achieving President Ronald Reagan’s “Informed Patriotism”

President Ronald Reagan was a Patriot. He loved America. And he knew he was serving “We the People.”  He was also very aware of the fact that our freedom is very precious and delicate. When he was being being inaugurated for his first term as the Governor of California in 1967, Reagan said, “Freedom is a […]

We Must Remain A Free People – The Only On Planet Earth

The unanimous decision of the City Council of Boulder, Colorado, to make it illegal, after June 15, 2018, to have in one’s possession, to buy or sell or otherwise transfer ownership of “semiautomatic firearms designed with military features to allow rapid spray firing for the quick and efficient killing of humans” is a direct assault on […]

Federal Judge Tramples on the Right to Bear Arms

Using language that is contrary to the Second Amendment, U.S. District Judge William Young has trampled on some citizens right to bear arms. His ruling to ban military-style and large capacity weapons in Massachusetts is because they are “designed and intended to be particularly suitable for combat rather than sporting applications.”  He then wrote that those […]

Unwarranted Hysteria Over Guns

It is unfortunate that people who must harbor some type of secret agenda come out in droves, actively and loudly, protesting the American citizen’s right to bear arms following mass shootings and other forms of violence where guns are involved.  The blame, for them, is always, always on the gun.  And, that hysteria is not […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Preserving American Rights

When the American Colonies broke away from England it was to escape a tyrannical king and to establish a country where people had inalienable rights, not whatever rights some ruler decided he might or might not bestow upon them. When all was said an done, our Founding Fathers were victorious in battle over Britain, and […]
