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 […]

Will the Supreme Court get it right regarding the First Amendment?

Will the Supreme Court get it right regarding the First Amendment? There are three cases being heard by the Supreme Court of the United States in 2018 that have Landmark Decision written all over them. Each of them, on their own, and all of them, collectively, will undoubtedly leave a lasting mark on the freedoms […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
