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

Ending the ‘Special Relationship’ with Britain

Winston Churchill made the phrase famous, using it late in World War II and then in the “Iron Curtain Speech,” in which he warned that an Iron Curtain had fallen over Europe, with the Communists on one side and the Free World on the other. He warned that neither efforts to prevent war nor the rise of world organizations would succeed without the “fraternal association of the English-speaking peoples.” That meant, he said, “a special relationship between the British Commonwealth and the Empire and the United States.” Continue reading

Obama vs. the Rule of Law

We are a constitutional republic. Broad fundamental laws and a separation of powers protect the American people from the arbitrary rule of men. Our founding fathers designed a system that was meant to keep a liberal democracy from degenerating into mob rule. They knew that mere legality, the creation of statutes, can violate the rights of the individual as much as a lawless tyrant or monarch.

THE subject of this Essay is not the so-called Liberty of the Will, so unfortunately opposed to the misnamed doctrine of Philosophical Necessity; but Civil, or Social Liberty: the nature and limits of the power which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual. A question seldom stated, and hardly ever discussed, in general terms, but which profoundly influences the practical controversies of the age by its latent presence, and is likely soon to make itself recognized as the vital question of the future. It is so far from being new, that, in a certain sense, it has divided mankind, almost from the remotest ages, but in the stage of progress into which the more civilized portions of the species have now entered, it presents itself under new conditions, and requires a different and more fundamental treatment.

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.
