There are numerous problems with our country and how government runs today which need fixing. At the federal level, in particular, many problems are most easily recognized. What to do to fix D.C. are various and wide ranging. Here, I wish to address the idea of an Article V convention of the states idea that seems to continue to gain …Read More
The Politics of Confusion
A well-known line and popular meme from a popular movie read “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” In many ways, this line from the Princess Bride perfectly describes the politics of today. The popular words of liberal and conservative have taken on different meanings for different people in different times, …Read More
Are We About to Repeat Genocidal History?
After the conclusion of WWII, and especially after discovering the horrors of the holocaust perpetrated by the Nazis, both the Jewish holocaust and those with other flaws such as physical and mental handicaps, religious beliefs, particularly Christianity, homosexual tendencies and so on, costing the lives of millions of our fellow travelers in our human existence, humanity vowed to never forget. …Read More
Return to the Principles of the Declaration of Independence!
On July 4, 1826, fifty years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, both the author of the Declaration, Thomas Jefferson, and one of the greatest advocates for independence, John Adams, died within hours of each other. Later, Daniel Webster eulogized John Adams in Boston’s Faneuil Hall. While Adams never gave the speech, Webster captured the essence of Adams’ …Read More
Amendments Are Absolute
Twice, since taking office as the president, Biden stated “No amendment to the Constitution is absolute.” Once on April 8th and then again on April 28th. What Biden really is saying is, first, the Constitution is not absolute, or rather the Constitution is no longer the “supreme law of the land” nor is it of concern to …Read More
The Double-standard and Rule of Law Myths
With all the political rhetoric being tossed around these days, with both sides accusing each other of dastardly deeds in their own eyes, I thought I would throw in my own two cents and figure that that will be worth as least as much as anyone else’s simply because opinions are just that- not worth two cents. What is important …Read More
Our Wholly Inadequate Government
While John Adams was not the only Founder who feared what might happen to his posterity in the future, he may have most succinctly warned us of immorality and what it would do to our country. Unfortunately, we seem to have left his warning and counsel unheeded, as I will show. Despite my attempt to enumerate the iniquities, as that …Read More
Thanksgiving: Sweet Day of Prayer
As we are nearing the time of Thanksgiving in a year filled to the brim and overflowing with heartache, sickness, oppression and many other afflictions and difficulties of 2020, it is paramount that we take a step back and also look at the bounteous blessing the hand of Providence has poured out. While there are some in government who would …Read More
Idaho State Constitutional Convention
Over the past several months, I have written a variety of articles concerning the actions taken by the governor because of the government created crisis (The American Crisis – March 2020) — not the crisis of the virus itself but the government’s response to the crisis — the legislature’s ineptness and unwillingness to squelch the despotic actions of …Read More
A number of things come to mind concerning the debate. I said this four years ago with the only difference being the Democratic nominee: Democrats and their supporters, including the media, will say Biden won. Republicans and their supporter will say Trump won. My concern is who lost. That is the American people.
I believe that we can get a …Read More
