Financial Tyranny: ‘We the People’ Are the New Permanent Underclass in America

The message is this: there is power in our numbers. That remains our greatest strength in the face of a governmental elite that continues to ride roughshod over the populace. It remains our greatest defense against a government that has claimed for itself unlimited power over the purse (taxpayer funds) and the sword (military might). Continue reading

An End to Colleges’ Racial Discrimination in Admissions?

Racial preferences are nothing less than blatant racial discrimination no matter how “holistic.” They remain a contentious topic in academia although not in America, where polls show that the public is overwhelmingly against them because they believe admission decisions made by colleges should be based solely on merit. What a concept! Continue reading

How to Bring Down a Republic

They indoctrinate, rewrite and lie about history, mock and distort religious beliefs, and promote a single progressive agenda. They discourage self-control and encourage hedonism (since, after all, any “mistakes” can be “fixed” by Planned Parenthood). Their goal is to achieve a massive universal groupthink populace incapable of questioning the government, much less governing themselves. Continue reading

Abolish the Family? Or Just Hobble Parents So They Don’t Give Kids ‘Unfair’ Advantages?

Once it goes beyond equality before the law, equal liberty for all, egalitarianism always runs up against a major problem: It needs people with guns to impose it on the unwilling, and even then they need escalating powers to scrutinize and intrude. Continue reading

On Constitution Day: ‘A Republic, if You Can Keep It’

It is remarkable the number of citizens that regard the United States of America as a ‘democracy.’ It is, of course, a Constitutional Republic, and always has been so. Thomas Jefferson regarded the distinction as such: “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” This article, slightly revised from its original form, first appeared in the November 6, 2000 issue of The New American. It is appropriate that we reacquaint ourselves with our Republican form of government on this Constitution Day 2014. Continue reading

A Pound of White Flesh

Why isn’t anyone speaking the most obvious and most disturbing truth about what has been taking place in Ferguson? This is a lynch mob. It is unconcerned with the facts, impatient with due process, and it wants a severely injured officer who is probably the victim of a vicious criminal thug, indicted, tried and convicted or else. Continue reading
