Constitutional America is the term I use to describe the America of the Founding Fathers, as updated and amended by a strong history of American and Constitutional progress though Representative Government. My argument seeks to advance the principle of the Rule Of Law versus the counter-principle of the Rule By Arbitrary Government. In this context, the term Government Central Planning is synonymous with the term Arbitrary Government Rule.
The difference is critical to understanding the nature of America as originally constituted and developed up until the election of President Obama. As an analogy, we are talking about the difference between laying down a set of “rules of the road”, including traffic laws and directional sign posts, as opposed to ordering people where to go and commanding what roads to take to get there. In the first instance, people are free to use the roads so long as they obey the laws pertaining to road usage. In the second, people are not free to use the roads, except, and only, precisely as ordered and directed by government.
When people are free to act on their own initiative, they must know and be able to accurately predict the response of government toward their personal and private actions on the roads. When people are not free to act on their own initiative, they must be told by government precisely where to go, precisely when to go there and precisely how to go there, meaning what specific roads to take. So the question before us is whether we are to take care of ourselves, as Americans thus far have historically done, or whether the government is to take care of us.
What is meant by the often heard (and often ignored) statement that we are a nation of laws and not just of men, is that there is and must be some framework of fixed and semi-permanent if not permanent laws of use to both guide and restrict government in its treatment of people and private property, i.e., the means of production. In America, since her founding, the citizenry have been recognized in nature and in law as, number one, free, and, number two, as the proper owners of property. Implicit within the Commandment Thou shalt not steal is the natural right of the individual citizen to actually own something. This is the natural right to private property handed on to America via the morality and the Judeo-Christian Ethos developed over the long history of Western Civilization.
Under Rule Of Law, the reaction of government to any private citizen action is known and predictable. The reason for this orderliness and predictability is that government is legally restrained in its treatment of people and private property. Under Arbitrary Government Rule, the rules pertaining to individual citizen behavior are unpredictable, for they are constantly in a state of change to meet every random new contingency as it presents itself. Government, in this instance, is unrestrained in its treatment of people and private property, i.e., the means of production. Indeed, in the Marxist view, all private property becomes “public” property, and there is no private property any more. All things and all people come under the direct control of government.
Under arbitrary government rule, terms like “public good” and “public welfare” and “public service” and “public property” and “public control” are all just fuzzy-wuzzy feel-good terms that mean, in reality, that the supreme dictator is in charge of whatever you’re talking about.
Constitutional America is the America that I love. Because I see Constitutional America slipping away, and because now, in current, right-now history, the process is accelerating so rapidly, I am afraid that it is quite possible for Constitutional America to be lost forever. The Constitution is being trashed so quickly and thoroughly that it may not be able to recover. And still, most of the American people don’t see what’s going on because our media, the SLIMC1 , which is already Marxist to the core, is in the Government hip pocket. The SLIMC1 is now a government entity; it is nothing less than the sitting government’s publicity and propaganda arm.
Whatever happens, America will never be the same again.
I feel compelled to take action. As a low-level ordinary citizen, the only thing I know how to do that might be better than yelling from my rooftop is to write things on this website. I may be just an ordinary citizen, but I have this website, and I know how to type. Maybe someone with more power than me will be moved to action by something read here; that is my prayer. So . . . here goes.
I will present my case for Constitutional America in the form of a hypothetical argument between hypothetical adversaries.
In the corner for Constitutional America stands adversary number one, whose name is Rule Of Law, hereinafter to be referred to as ROL.
His opponent, in the corner for Government Central Planning, is adversary number two, whose name is Arbitrary Rule by Government, hereinafter to be referred to as ARG.
Let the arguments for and against Constitutional America begin.
ROL: OK; that’s as good a beginning point as any. First of all, our tax code is far, far too complicated. As an illustration of my point, I have here in my shirt pocket, in this small, flat little booklet, a copy of our Declaration of Independence, and the complete Constitution of the United States of America, with all Constitutional Amendments up through XXVII, published by the Cato Institute. As you can see, it is very small, with 58 perfectly readable little pages. This one document represents the whole of the construction and organization of the Federal government, and the whole of the working rules for the Federal governance of the United States of America. (Note that all American State Constitutions are quite similar in organization and length.)
Now, seeing all this design, and all this law, compactly contained in this one, quite small shirt-pocket sized booklet, why on earth would anyone think that our national tax code ought to be or might need to be in excess of 70,000 full sized pages in length?
Truth, like clarity, seeks simplicity and does not take many words. Falsehood, like obfuscation, seeks complexity and does indeed take many words. My suspicion is that there is much in our tax code that really cannot stand the light of day. Our tax code ought to be far more simple and easier to understand than all of the organization and operating rules of the national government of the most powerful nation on earth.
ARG: Not necessarily so. Our tax code became complex in order to become more fair. It had to become a progressive code with tables in order to tax the wealthy at a higher rate than the poor.
ROL: Any flat income tax, or any fixed percentage income tax, is already “progressive” in that, the more you make, the more you pay, and the less you make, the less you pay. But why should we have an income tax at all? America did fine before the income tax came along and began to grow, like a cancer, becoming more and more oppressive and onerous.
In the interest of simplicity, clarity, honesty, fairness and solving our current anti-Capitalism-induced economic dilemma, we should adopt the Fair Tax and outlaw all other forms of taxation. Which means, of course, repeal of Amendment XVI, the infamous income tax Amendment. All forms of Federal tax, including Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and any and all others, would be outlawed.
The Fair Tax, in and of itself, will take Social Security and Medicare out of the deficit situation they face and fully fund then on into the unlimited future. It is, essentially, a national sales tax that will not raise the price of anything for sale. If that still sounds weird to you, then you haven’t read the details at the link yet, and I encourage you to look at them. You might not know it yet, but you are already paying your and your employer’s share of all of your taxes through your reduced paycheck. Under the Fair Tax, all taxes are paid at the site of the retail sale, be it a gas pump, a grocery store, a department store, restaurant, garage or anywhere else you pay retail price for any good or a service. It’s rung up at the register, and the merchant sends the tax revenue along to Uncle Sam.
It will give poor people (actually, it will give all people) an un-earned monthly income that exceeds the income of many workers in Socialist nations, such as Cuba. And, unlike the Cubans, Americans won’t have to work for it. It will eliminate the need to file any annual income tax statements ever again. It will shut down probably 90% of the IRS. It will boost government revenue like never before. The first year enacted, it should provide (on paper) the same revenue as the grand total of all government taxes (including SS, etc.) that are in effect at the time of adoption.
Every worker in America will enjoy a huge increase in pay, since no federal taxes or SS taxes will be deducted from any paychecks. Every business in America will enjoy a huge spike in revenue, because they will no longer be paying any taxes on their business income, or any part of their employee’s taxes, workers compensation, etc., all of which will still be fully funded. America will become an economic magnet, irresistibly drawing other businesses to locate here where they will not be taxed. The demand for jobs will radically increase at the same time that consumer demand increases for virtually everything, due to the increased discretionary dollars now in worker-consumer pockets. More spending means more government revenue, too.
ARG: This sounds like pie-in-the-sky, too good to be true. This needs to be studied very carefully before going any farther with it.
ROL: I submit that no tax proposal that I know of is more thoroughly researched and documented than the Fair Tax. I’m talking all of American history here. The theory is sound and proven, in as much as it may be proven without being enacted. I have looked very closely at it, and it beats the living hell out of our existing tax mess. It promises an end to the huge morass of tax complexity that threatens to bury us. And, as a bonus, it provides a path out of the economic doom being purposely orchestrated by the Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress.
ARG: Huh? President Obama is bringing us change we can believe in, and hope, and fairness. He hasn’t even been in office half a year yet; why don’t you give him a chance?
ROL: Nearly everything he says and nearly every action he takes is, in some way, a violation of his oath of office. Hardly a day goes by without another violation. He swore to defend a Constitution that he is on record as opposing. He has stated that he considers our Constitution to be flawed, and that he considers America to be flawed, in its very foundation. By his words and actions he has virtually abrogated contract law, which is the very foundation stone of all free commerce everywhere. He has fired and hired CEOs of theoretically “private” enterprises. He has taken partial ownership (meaning government control) of major private financial institutions and private manufacturing industries. He has expropriated private property, in the form of investor’s stock, and redistributed it to others. He, personally – not any bankruptcy court – has personally demanded, received and approved bankruptcy reorganization plans of major private enterprises. He has set limits on the amount of compensation executives may earn in theoretically “private” enterprises. And he is just getting started.
He is rapidly and systematically taking over the entire private sector.
In the Marxism-Of-Obama page we showed how his own recorded words betray him as being, at least philosophically, a Communist, who loves collectivization and redistribution. Those are his words. But his actions since taking office betray him as being in actuality a Fascist. The difference is that Obama, like Mussolini and Hitler, keeps the owners and CEOs of private enterprises on a tight leash rather than getting rid of them altogether, as a Lenin or a Stalin would do. Rather than owning the enterprises, he owns the owners of the enterprises. Either way, he’s still a Marxist, and as such he despises America as Constituted, and he despises everything she stands for.
Nearly everything he says turns out to be another lie. You can’t even count them all; I’ve given up on that. I just look at the major ones now. Count the gigantic TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) bills; count the gigantic Bail-Out bills; count the gigantic Stimulus bills. Every one of them came with it’s own lie, or set of lies. The enterprise was “too big to allow to fail.” The bill would keep it from failing. Bankruptcy for such a large manufacturer was out of the question; it could have negative effects on the whole economy, and the economy of the world; we simply cannot allow this enterprise to fail. Only the government is big enough to solve this economic problem. This bill is all that is needed to solve the problem. All lies.
Not one single pre-bill statement was true. Not one single one of these bills did what it was supposed to do. Not one single private enterprise was “saved.” Not one single bankruptcy was averted; indeed, major bankruptcies were demanded and orchestrated. Where did all that money go? I mean, besides the snake eradication program on the island of Guam. And not counting the thousands and thousands of other earmarks Obama swore we would never see again.
Bottom line: no “troubled asset” got any relief; no bailed-out enterprise was kept any higher afloat; no part of the economy was “stimulated.” It was all just lie after lie after lie. And there are more coming. Every one of them will be an emergency, and every one of them will fail, and every one of them will involve political lies.
Obama is clearly a MEJTML14 who very deceptively, smoothly and yet strongly promotes The Great Communist Lie to all dupes and fellow ideologues, and to the American people. People actually believe him.
The thing I find particularly troubling, believe it or not, is the Democrat friends who are now finally upset at Obama, but for the wrong reasons. They think – they actually believe – that Obama gave TARP / Bail-Out / Stimulus money to corporate big shots rather than “the workers” and “the poor” who they thought should have gotten most or even all of that money. This mistaken belief is due, I suppose, to mal-education and/or semi-literacy, or perhaps gullibility. Maybe it’s due to the propaganda-as-news that they get from the SLIMC1 . For whatever reason, they still don’t realize that Obama is taking command of the very big shots these people think are somehow profiting from all these bills, and yet, he is taking their authority, chopping their income, destroying their businesses, and making them smile while he does it.
I don’t even know what to say about that. But in the end, the workers and the poor will indeed suffer the most, as Obama continues to maul, abuse, mal-manage and strangle all of private enterprise, in an unbelievably gross over-stepping of his Constitutional authority.
ROL: OK, but, why limit it to homosexual marriage? Why don’t we broaden the topic to include public normalization and social acceptance of open, highly public homosexuality?
Homosexuality is against my religion. What does your religion say about it?
ARG: Religion has nothing to do with it. We have a constitutional principle of separation of Church and state here. This is a social matter that has only to do with individual conscience and no particular moral standard. An individual citizen has every right to believe differently than you. You cannot legislate morality. My religion is a private matter, and my religion has nothing to do with the homosexual marriage political issue.
ROL: I beg your pardon; religion has everything to do with it. Morality comes out of religion. Our national morality, or our National Ethos, is born of Judeo-Christianity, which animated and motivated our Founding Fathers, and which is at the root of our Constitution and all of our civil law. It is also the common ethos of the overwhelming majority of the American people, whom our government is Constitutionally required to represent.
I have a copy of our Constitution right here. Could you please point out the Constitutional Principle of Separation of Church and State for me? I can’t seem to find it. Your “Constitutional Principle” argument is thoroughly refuted in the Separation of Church and State page. As explained there, it is a court-invented “precedent” that needs to be directly abrogated and eliminated either by legislative action or by executive order in a future government, in the interest of bringing back the Constitutional principle of the three co-equal branches of government, and governmental checks and balances.
I brought up the issue of Open Homosexuality because that is what is really at the core of this discussion. My religion condemns homosexuality as mortally sinful, and requires me to say so. Preventing or hindering my ability to publicly say so violates my Constitutional right to freedom of religious exercise. I refuse to put my religion aside on an issue such as this, or on any issue at all, because putting my religion aside is against my religion. My religion comes first. My religion guides my life.
You are quite right that an individual citizen has every right to believe differently than me. But he has no right to impose his divergent morality on me and mine, and on the predominantly Judeo-Christian populace, through any arbitrary court decision, unrepresentative civil law or regulation.
Regarding the Legislating Morality issue; if we cannot legislate morality, then, what are we to we legislate? Immorality? I submit that morality is exactly and precisely what must be legislated by a moral government representing a moral electorate. If we ever get to the point where even the civil law process is to not recognize any moral standard, then we will have descended below barbarism and into animalism.
Your “private matter” argument is refuted at the Religion As A Private Matter argument page. I do not accept it. My religion is openly professed. Is there something about yours that cannot stand the light of day? My religion defines my moral standards and the rules that guide my life. I am only asking you to identify your moral standard, if you have one. You should be happy to give your argument some form of moral credence rather than some vague, “I don’t have to believe what you believe” wimp-out statement.
And, if your religion has nothing to do with the homosexual marriage political issue, then, what on earth kind of religion could it possibly be? What, exactly, guides your life and gives you purpose?
I go back to my original statement: Homosexuality is against my religion. What does your religion say about it?
ROL: OK. Abortion is against my religion. What does your religion say about it?
ARG: Oh-oh. Well . . . um . . . religion has nothing to do with it. We have a constitutional principle of separation of Church and state here. This is a social matter that has only to do with individual conscience and no particular moral standard. An individual citizen has every right to believe differently than you. You cannot legislate morality. My religion is a private matter, and my religion has nothing to do with the homosexual marriage political issue.
ROL: Ho hum, heavy sigh and here we go again. See the above response to the Democrat Pro-Sodomy political position. It is virtually identical to the logical response to the Democrat Pro-Abortion political position. The Democrat Party has a lot invested in basic Judeo-Christian immorality. These are planks in their Party platform, and issues that morally define their political Party. Or, perhaps, they more correctly immorally define the Democrat Party.
In a similar manner to what was said about setting aside the so-called Separation of Church and State, the court-invented “Constitutional” rights to such things as abortion and privacy should be set aside by either legislative action or executive order in a future government. See the abortion page for the story of the disgusting judicial travesties that brought these ridiculous “laws” into being, and why they need to be undone.
This could go on interminably, but it has to end somewhere. The intent is to stir thought in some conservative mind, hopefully a conservative candidate or future candidate, who might see it, and use some of this as rhetorical ammunition, with which to bring us to a higher place.
There is no reason for any devout Protestant, Catholic, Jew or Orthodox to back down in any way on these or any other issues in any political debate in America. It’s time to take America back, and restore Constitutional America to what it was designed to be.
Pray for Constitutional America, and for future American leadership.

When did he "abrogate contract law"?
Show me “his own recorded words” that betray him as a Communist.
Where are your evidences?

Even if you are 100% right about President Obama (and I am not saying that you are right) your fear that “constitutional America” is permanently “slipping away” is unfounded. It is true that nothing will ever be the same again; but then nothing ever is the same again. The fact that things will be different does not necessarily mean that things will be worse.
The American people are not that stupid. No such calamity as you envision is going to happen without the voters taking notice in plenty of time to change course. You speak as though everyone else, other than Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and their adamant followers, is either evil or stupid. That is what I take exception to.
I like some of what you say; I just think you go to far.

The American voters, in their majority, are indeed “that stupid.” They have already proved it. The American citizenry, in general, is “that stupid.” The proof of that statement is all around you. Our United States House of Representatives just passed the absolutely ludicrous Cap And Trade Bill by an overwhelming margin. None of them had even read it, but they voted it in. They’re trying to legislate the weather, for heaven’s sake. Our whole House of Representatives have just proved themselves to be too stupid for words.
And the mal-educated and mal-informed American people didn’t even notice, because they, and the entire SLIMC1 , have been so pre-occupied with what they consider to be a far more important matter: the great funeral show of Michael Jackson. That giant freak show demanded 24 – 7 coverage by every network, including FOX News, to such a degree that it was a day and a half after the event that I learned which way the vote went on Cap And Trade. The largest tax increase in American history, and the greatest transfer of power from the people to government in American history, and all the news coverage was going to the Michael Jackson circus. (Use of the word circus is not an exaggeration; Ringling Brothers is in it, with elephants.) Tickets – yeah, tickets, to a flipping funeral – are going on e-bay for upwards of $150,000.
All of this proves my ongoing contention that there exists not one single news network in America that is conservative. The best thing I can say about FOX News is that I doubt that it is Marxist. They strive to be “neutral”, which is, to me, disgusting. The American people don’t need neutral news. Neutral reporting does nothing whatsoever to counteract the overwhelming Marxist message from all the rest of the media. This is not a time for neutrality, but neutrality is now the best we can hope for in American journalism, and that is just disgusting. There is no American network with either the guts or the principles required to speak the naked truth and then stand their ground.
Listen to the words of all of these supposedly brilliant politicians and journalists, and tell me they’re not stupid. One of the most frequently heard lead-ins these days runs along the lines of, “Everyone agrees we need to do something about global warming”, or, “Everyone agrees we need to do something about health care”, with the assumption that those statements are somehow actually true. They are not true. The fact is, everyone who agrees with those stupid premises has got to be dumber than a box of rocks.
Whatever happened to “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”?
There exists, in all the universe, not one single shred of empirical evidence that proves that the globe is warming, or that it is cooling, or that it is neither warming nor cooling. There exists, in all the universe, not one single shred of empirical evidence that man or the activities of man have any measurable effect on global climate, or that man can in any way change global climate by any human actions. Yet there exist a thundering herd of TTRSTF4 standing ready, willing and able to sign any declaration or other instrument of consensus “proving” that what I just said is false. But none of them will produce any irrefutable empirical evidence for their position. All they have is consensus, among a bunch of real idiots.
Which shows that we have lots and lots of TTRSTF4 in America who are just as stupid as the House of Representatives just proved itself to be.
Other words the supposedly brilliant politicians and journalists toss around include how we have some number, varying between 19 million and 47 million, Americans who have no health insurance. The fact that most of them choose not to have health insurance is glossed over or not reported. The current plan will do nothing at all for these uninsured people, and nobody notices that little fact. What the plan is going to do is screw up all the rest of the insured population, leaving the uninsured uninsured. So why were they even mentioned in the first place?
All of this is smoke and mirrors, anyway, because the real goal here has nothing to do with the environment, or with health care, or with anything other than power. The transfer of power from the people to the government, and to the new tyrant. That’s what it’s really all about.
But the people continue to be dumbed-down, mal-educated and mal-informed on all substantive issues. It’s reached the point where they don’t even know what’s going on, and don’t care, because, you see, Michael Jackson died.
A man who started out a really cute kid with a ton of talent, and who turned himself into a one man walking freak show. Not slowly, but rapidly. He was made in the image of God. There was nothing wrong with his nose. There was nothing wrong with his skin tone. There was nothing wrong with his chin. There was nothing wrong with his hair. He was once an extremely attractive and cute kid. Somehow, he wound up with some sour form of self loathing; something not fully understandable, and certainly not normal.
Nor was his obsession with little boys normal. All that “non-sexual” sleep togethers, story-telling, tucking-in, milk and cookies, etc., was just not normal. Normal men do not behave like that, and they seek non-sexual companionship with others on the same intellectual level as themselves. Even his stage persona became a bit weird. Just as the pop-tart Madonna wore underwear as outer garments on stage, Michael Jackson began wearing what looked to be a gold-colored jock strap on top of his trousers. Why? What was he accentuating, and why?
Like I said, he became a one man walking freak show. Now, I’m sure his plastic surgeon(s) are truly mourning. They’ll likely never find another such rich sucker filled with such self loathing that they could build their careers around him.
That – the Michael Jackson circus – is what most Americans are all tied up in knots over right now. Cap And Trade? What’s that?
Sorry, Ruth, but yes, the American people really are that stupid.

These days it seems that even those who are finally getting upset about what’s going on and are ready to take strong political action are motivated for the wrong reasons. While I’m glad they’re getting mad, I wish they would spend more time thinking about the situation, so that their resulting action could be more accurately focused. Many otherwise well –meaning people are still blaming Capitalism, Wall Street, private enterprise, business men and employers for causing the current economic melt-down. Here’s a news flash:
Go back and look at the 2008 Financial Crisis page for the original causes. Step through the rest of the series of articles; the links are at the bottom of the Marxism of Obama page. The government did it.
But the people don’t know that. Look at the currently popular lyrics of the John Rich hit song, Shuttin’ Detroit Down:
But, you see, Wall Street didn’t do this.
Small and medium sized businesses in America are in serious jeopardy, and they represent the largest source of employment that we have. A huge percentage of them stand an excellent chance of going belly up.
At the top of the corporate food chain, among the very largest financial institutions and industries, the top dogs are running scared. They are turning themselves into government lap dogs, and praying that Obama will be more like Hitler than like Stalin, because under a Hitler-like dictator they would have the best possible chance to not only survive, but remain in some semblance of power and comfort, even if a lot less than what they enjoy now. Under a Stalin, they would simply be shot, or they would disappear into the gulag.
Obama’s Communist – criminal grass-roots organization ACORN, recently renamed COI, is to be the only business on the rise, other than government itself. Under Obama, they (ACORN/COI) will become government. From their ranks will come the guards of the gulags, the overseers of the forced laborers, and the lower petty bureaucrats who will get to say those coveted Marxist words, “Shut up and get on the cattle car” to other American citizens.
Nobody is looking closely at this and reporting truthfully on it. It’s happening right in front of our eyes. Sure, Rush and Sean are popular on the radio, but most people don’t listen to them. Sure, FOX is “fair and balanced” (and therefore revolting) but most people are not watching them either. And they deliver a bland form of pabulum along with a small helping of truth, which gets buried under the “balance” they insist upon. There is no conservative TV network news in existence.
And the citizenry, by and large, is far more interested in celebrity news anyway.
God help us.

and absolutely nothing else.
Purpose for this grouping of links is to highlight the three natural
divisions, in philosophy, religion, morality and politics; what is
proper, what is disengaged and what must be defeated.
The Winnowing Pages
Ben Franklin described the division of the time as the Loyalists, the Rebels and the Mug-Whumps, with their Mugs hanging over one side of the fence, and their Whumps hanging over the other. Today, we have the Constitutionalists, the anti-Constitutionalists, and the Moron Vote.
The Three Sociological Divisions: The Faithful; The Disengaged; The Faithless. Those who stand in Truth, those who oppose Truth, and those who are Lukewarm toward Truth comprise the Three Sociological Divisions.
On the Cultural Menace of Massively Induced Stupidity. When you hear Leftist Leaders say something truly stupid, don't laugh. They are enlivening all the induced stupidity of their followers, and enraging your "revolutionary" conquerors.
There is a time appointed for everything; this is the time of winnowing. We must politically winnow, to separate into good grain, useful straw, and useless flammable chaff.Against political moderation: America was not founded by indecisive moral wimps.
Political Moderation provides neither leadership nor opposition, but merely a moral drag that historically prolongs moral debates and ends up hurting morality.
Blessed Polarization & Political Division: what America desperately needs today. Lord, give us blessed polarization, a line drawn in the sand and a polarizing leader like Sarah Palin to lead us back to American sanity.
America’s return to faith in God is now a matter of American national survival. If America does not return to faith in God, no return to “conservatism” will save her; it will only prolong her death agony.
Faith versus Atheism: Is atheism really just a silly superstition? The Faith versus Atheism argument is at the root of every other important argument.
Constitutional America: The argument for a return to basic rule of law. The arguments for a return to the Constitutional America intended by the Fathers and expected by the People through their Representative Government.
Atheizing America - we sit, seemingly mesmerized, merely watching it happen. Among all Leftist agendas, the atheizing America agenda is the one we seem to notice the least. Like deer in the headlights, we just stand there and watch.
A fatal false premise is a deadly logical trap for the mal-educated person. A Fatal false premise with broad general consensus will always trump reason, evidence and critical thinking.
The World says: Faith Versus Reason. The Spirit says: Faith And Reason. Choose. Is it possible to be a man of faith and reason simultaneously? Or is true faith exclusively reserved for dumb hillbillies, bible-thumping zealots, and unthinking cradle traditionalists?
Behold the Masters of Hypocrisy who denigrate us and highlight their own shame. Good Leadership, for the Masters of Hypocrisy, means Surrender to the World and Follow The Mob.
Of all the dumb-assed ideas in the world, the dumbest is The Equality Stupidity. The Equality Stupidity takes the prize for the most imbecilic of all ideologies.
On Replacing America: Do detractors seek replacement, or destruction? Replacing America, or destroying America - what do Democrats and other fundamental Marxists want to do to America?
Even the very best among us can be fooled into blessing abomination. In blessing abomination we show how we have been mesmerized by the slyest of lies.
