Cicero on: Caesar, Sulla, and Obama
During the last months of 44 BC Cicero wrote a long letter to his only son Marcus giving him counsel about how to live a noble life.
Among the subjects he addressed with his son was the importance of generosity. Generosity itself – while a virtue – can retain its good name but be turned into a squalid vice.
Surely this is the most evil [...]
RECLAIMING THE AMERICAN DREAM
Too many Americans have no understanding about ordered liberty. They see political power only as a means to enrich themselves at the expense of others and not as a means of ongoing stewardship over the permanent things. Too many politicians seek to give them what they want rather than protecting our Constitutional principles. Economic decline, social disorder; and cultural and economic decline seem [...]
Wealth Is An Organic Entity – No One Can Redistribute It
We need to make an intelligent vote for president in November, so let’s look at Mr. Obama’s plan for our future.
SLOGANS MUST BE IGNORED, FACTS MUST BE CONSIDERED
Four years ago, Mr. Obama said he would bring “Hope and Change.” Mr. Obama did inherit an economic mess, but nobody forced him to run for office – he wanted the problem because he thought he [...]
“You Didn’t Build That:” Colossal Untruth
With these words, Mr. Obama revealed his conception of how commerce should be done in America. If he has his way, free enterprise in the United States will end. Along with it economic success will end; the capacity of the goodness of America to help feed the world will end; the economic engine that has funded Christian missions will slow, the Constitutionally created [...]
Tocqueville Anticipates America Under Mr. Obama and the Democrat Party Part 1
Below are quotes taken from Alexis de Tocqueville without comment by me. Tocqueville was born in 1805 in the Normandy region of France, and died in 1859. He visited the United States in the years 1831 – 1832. He traveled widely and visited every part of the settled United States. He took copious notes, and upon his return to France, he began writing [...]
How Our Republic is Rotting From the Head
It is gone, that lovely adherence to fidelity and truth; it is gone.
It has passed from this vast and wonderful land; that healthy pride born of self-reliance and industry; it is gone.
The beauty of a people able to make a correct determination about what is moral and what is not, capable of correcting the wrongs and punishing the wrongdoers; of enhancing and promoting [...]

The “Umpire” Throws Out The Final Pitch
In his opening statement before the Senate at his confirmation hearing John Roberts said, “Judges are like umpires. Umpires don’t make the rules; they apply them. The role of an umpire and a judge is critical. They make sure everybody plays by the rules. I will remember that it’s my job to call balls and strikes and not to pitch or bat.”
But that [...]
John Kerry, Theologian
Well-known theologian, John Kerry recently told students at Gordon College – a Christian college – that Christians should support Mr. Obama’s health care plan because, “Jesus did not help just the sick who could afford to pay for it.” Well, duh.
Mr. Kerry’s Logical Mistake
I think this blindingly obtuse statement by the oaf from Massachusetts is referred to as a non sequitur. What a [...]
The Contraception Debate: What Are The Real Issues?
Mr. Obama believes he has the power to control what the Catholic Church teaches is a religious practice
