Here We Stand, One Step Away from a Dictatorship: “The Groundwork and Foundation Have Been Put Into Place”

Indeed, it is not likely the American People would consciously stand for a dictatorship. But that doesn’t mean the Powers That Be aren’t trying—or that the pieces aren’t already in place for a violent conquest. # Continue reading

A Little-Noted Masterpiece of Constitutional Scholarship by Justice Thomas

Justice Thomas has provided us a masterpiece of constitutional thinking, explaining why “administrative law” — the practice of delegating to bureaucrats the making and enforcement of rules with the force of law — is so profoundly unconstitutional. 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

Random Acts of Tyranny: NYC Pushing American Voting Rights for Foreign Nationals

There is perhaps nothing more cherished by the American People than their right to vote. It ranks right up there with private property ownership and freedom of speech. Voting is an honorable and enviable American tradition, a universal touchstone of self-government throughout the free world. Yet it is at risk of being undermined. 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. Continue reading

Thomas Jefferson: Liberty and Power

It seems to me that in our present condition, the only means of getting judges, legislators, and executives to consult the actual provisions of the Constitution and to obey the oaths they take to observe its bounds and protect it is to adopt sanctions against its violation or evasion. In sum, it should be made a crime punishable by removal from office for any government officer, including members of Congress, to participate affirmatively in any act not authorized by or in violation of the Constitution. Trial for those accused should be in United States District Courts before a jury charged with determining whether a violation has taken place and a judge empowered to remove them from office. 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. Decades later, Alexis de Tocqueville, commenting on “Democracy in America” popularized the phrase “the tyranny of the majority” to describe a degenerate democracy that violates the rights of a minority. Continue reading

Redistribution as Slavery

By advancing the welfare state and income redistribution through class warfare, one of the basic intellectually inconsistent ironies of liberalism is exposed: the indefensible practice of trying to defend equality and the dignity of man by violating the human rights of those very people you claim to be defending. The hypocrisy of the left knows no boundaries. Continue reading

Secession, Sovereignty, and Salvation: Jefferson Lives!

We are a Rule of Law nation, born of the Enlightenment. We formed our federal government to work at the pleasure of Rule of Law States. We must remind ourselves (and the neo-federalists) that these laws were devised to protect a Sovereign People — by prohibiting the rule of unscrupulous men.

We must learn how to leverage our supreme laws and unalienable rights, effectively and enduringly. Learn to embrace State electoral politics. Learn to engage our State legislators, governors, and attorneys general. Learn how to petition through the courts, properly, and with critical mass. Continue reading

Second Bite to Challenge Obama’s Eligibility?

“I see, as you do, and with the deepest affliction, the rapid strides with which the federal branch of our government is advancing towards the usurpation of all the rights reserved to the states, and the consolidation in itself of all powers, foreign and domestic; and that too, by constructions which, if legitimate, leave no limits to their power…” — Tomas Jefferson Continue reading
