How to Bring Down a Republic

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

It is appropriate that we reacquaint ourselves with our Republican form of government on this Constitution Day 2014. Continue reading
