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.

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.

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.

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 […]

When the US Supreme Court Gets it Wrong

Supreme Court Incorrectly Makes Prayer in Schools Illegal There is not a shadow of right in the general government to inter-meddle with religion. … The subject is, for the honor of America, perfectly free and unshackled. The government has no jurisdiction over it.  James Madison However, our government has not only meddled with religion, it […]

Constitution Day 2017

With many of our rights and freedoms under assault at this time, it makes sense to honor our Founding Fathers for the work that they did over two centuries ago. When they had experienced enough tyranny from King George III of England, when their pleas and requests were shunned or ignored, when the Brits ordered […]

Destroying Freedoms and Rights in America

One of the first major in-your-face assaults to abolish our U.S. Constitution and eradicate many of our rights and freedoms occurred over five decades ago when the Supreme Court made a horrendous decision blocking prayer in schools. Their 1963 ruling made it illegal for students to participate in prayer while in school because it violates […]
