Fourth Amendment: The History Behind “Unreasonable”

Many justify federal violations of the Fourth Amendment by arguing its necessity to fight “terrorism.” But the Fourth Amendment does not have exceptions. In fact, it was meant to restrain government action in just these situations. Continue reading

Cicero and Obama

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

Socialists Dance on Jefferson’s Grave

This has been the pattern of many in power throughout the ages. It matters little which class or cause they claim to represent. What they invariably ignore is that awesome power carries with it awesome responsibility. Continue reading

Why We Should Mistrust the Government

It should come as no surprise that President Obama told Ohio State University students at a graduation ceremony last week that they should not question authority and they should reject the calls of those who do. He argued that “our brave, creative, unique experiment in self-rule” has been so successful that trusting the government is the same as trusting ourselves; hence, challenging the government is the same as challenging ourselves. He blasted those who incessantly warn of government tyranny.

Yet, mistrust of government is as old as America itself. America was born out of mistrust of government. The revolution that was fought in the 1770s and 1780s was won in the minds of Colonists in the mid-1760s when the British imposed the Stamp Act and used writs of assistance to enforce it. The Stamp Act required all people in the Colonies to have government-sold stamps on all documents in their possession, and writs of assistance permitted search warrants written by British troops in which they authorized themselves to enter private homes ostensibly to look for the stamps.

Secession: A Specifically American Principle

It is no exaggeration to say that the unique contribution of the eighteenth-century American Enlightenment to political thought is not federalism but the principle that a people, under certain conditions, have a moral right to secede from an established political authority and to govern themselves.

The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions: Guideposts of Limited Government

For true change to take place, Americans must once again conceive of their history as a struggle to create and maintain real freedom. Part of that reconceptualization would entail making a place for the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions in the pantheon of American charters. The resolutions articulate the fundamental principles of our government in an eloquent yet logical manner; in their import, they rank second only to the Constitution. For Americans who would recreate a limited federal government of enumerated powers — the government created by the Founders ­— the resolutions can serve as an enduring inspiration. Continue reading
