The War of 1861

The 1783 Treaty of Paris ended the war between the colonies and Great Britain. Its first article declared the 13 colonies “to be free, sovereign and independent states.” These 13 sovereign nations came together in 1787 as principals and created the federal government as their agent. Principals have always held the right to fire agents. In other words, states held a right to withdraw from the pact — secede. Continue reading

Tyranny — Not War — Was 20th Century’s Biggest Killer

War was not the Twentieth Century’s biggest killer. That title belongs to Government Tyranny. The contest wasn’t even close, as evidenced by the harrowing numbers below. How did it happen?

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