What Is a Vice-President - And Why?

Posted: Thursday, January 5th, 2012

"The office is haunted by the words of John Nance Garner, who served as VP (1933-1941) under President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Garner is said to have declared that the vice-presidency as an office was "not worth a bucket of warm spit." No wonder so many people decline the honor of running."

The American Nightmare That Is Civil Asset Forfeiture

Posted: Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

Being innocent does not matter. Not being arrested or convicted of a crime is no protection. With amazing ease, the government can take everything you own. And to recover it, you must prove your innocence through an expensive and difficult court proceeding in which a severely lowered standard of evidence favors the government. This is civil asset forfeiture.

"Decent people should not obey immoral laws. What's moral and immoral can be a contentious issue, but there are some broad guides for deciding what laws and government actions are immoral.

Constitution, Like Bible, Not Owned by Those in Authority

Posted: Monday, August 15th, 2011

"Let each of us learn the Constitution and apply it to our particular circumstances. We need to make those in office go by it, especially those who have sworn to uphold it. And if we will not do this, then we need to accept the fact that those in charge will generally abuse it. This is so true in Christianity in regards to the Bible. Why, most people in America have not even read through the Bible once, let alone know what it says about life, death, God and eternity."

Repeal the Seventeenth Amendment

Posted: Saturday, October 1st, 2011

"An important assault on State's rights was the Seventeenth Amendment. The product of the time when Populism and Progressivism were sweeping large sections of America, the Seventeenth Amendment jammed a wedge of pure democracy into the Constitution where it was never designed to belong. This upset the Constitutional checks-and-balances system, weakened State rights and power, and magnified the power of special interests in Washington."

Obama, the 14th Amendment, and the Debt Ceiling

Posted: Friday, July 29th, 2011

"The topic of the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution is continuing to stir debate in Washington, with those who favor increasing the debt limit at any cost raising the specter of President Obama simply overruling Congress and authorizing the issuance of new debt without the consent of lawmakers. According to this storyline, the president need only invoke Section 4 of the 14th Amendment, which states that "the validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law … shall not be questioned." If Congress refuses to abide by its constitutional obligation to ensure government debts are paid, argue certain of Obama's supporters, then the president would be justified in simply imposing his will on Congress to ensure that the 14th Amendment's prohibition of government default is honored."
