Limited Government

Time for Local Control of Education

January 7, 2016 // 2 Comments

Tell any American that we should have a National Religion and watch the sparks fly.  Americans have an instinctive – and healthy – aversion to the notion that there should ever be a national religion.  It has been drilled into our heads from an early age that the U.S. Constitution established healthy boundaries and limits for the federal government regarding religion.  Boundaries and limits are a necessary component to [Read More ... ]

A Republic – Without Morality?

September 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

It is amazing how many Americans expect government leaders to be moral – how sickened Americans are when they are lied to by politicians – and yet how NAIVE so many Americans are to expect moral leaders when so many Americans reject the very recipe necessary to achieve moral governance in a Republic.  The Founding Fathers were explicit about the fact that the only way to maintain a free Republic was to maintain virtue and [Read More ... ]

Hillary’s Lies Don’t Add Up

March 10, 2015 // 0 Comments

Listening to the Sean Hannity Show’s livecast of the Hillary Rodham press conference today, I just shook my head.  To defend her illegal use of a personal e-mail account for official business as Secretary of State, Hillary actually claimed that she did not want more than one e-mail account because she didn’t want to have to carry two phones. As I continued listening to the radio show – ON MY SMARTPHONE (and still listening to [Read More ... ]

H.R. 5 – Federal Stranglehold on Education (Including Private Schools)

February 24, 2015 // 4 Comments

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker, John Boehner, is trying to push an education bill through the house this week that he claims, “…contains a number of conservative reforms to reduce the federal footprint, restore local control, and empower parents and local leaders to hold schools accountable.”  Sounds great right up until one actually reads the 600+ page bill that was only introduced February 3, 2015. How is [Read More ... ]

Constitution Day Assignment

Being a teacher who seeks to uphold and defend both the spirit and the letter of U.S. Constitutional law, I put together the video below in order to present to my students the core nature of our Constitution from the Founding Fathers’ point of view.  I also sought to overcome obstacles imposed by the 12 years of left-leaning public schooling most of my students have already endured.  As such, I intentionally used quotes from John [Read More ... ]

“Fluke” OR … Ingenious Check on Power?

August 22, 2014 // 0 Comments

Following a Facebook post in which I promoted Monday’s article, “Want Unity? Uphold the Platform!“, someone remarked that Michigan’s State Constitution contains a “fluke” that permits Republican Party delegates to elect the party’s candidate for Lieutenant Governor at State Nominating Convention.  Here is my response to that erroneous view of principle of Liberty technically known as a Check on Power.  [Read More ... ]

400 Years? – Read the Constitution!

March 14, 2014 // 0 Comments

Some members of Congress say the stupidest things.  Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) – a voting member of the U.S. House of Representatives – claimed this week that the U.S. Constitution is 400 years old.  Really? Is Lee cognizant of the fact that the United States was NOT even established as an independent nation until 1776?  Not to mention the fact that the Constitution itself wasn’t even written until 1787? Does [Read More ... ]
