Hillary Clinton has exposed – without shame – the Democrat/Liberal attitude towards religion. In a speech to the Women in the World Summit, she said: Continue reading
Americans take great pride in our nation’s founding documents. At the time of its publication, the Declaration of Independence was an astounding rebuke of tyrannical rule that took the spirit of the Magna Carta and, with the subsequent Constitution, “formed a more perfect union.” Not perfect, but more perfect.
That Constitution is one of mankind’s most important documents. It created a government and a governmental process unlike any ever seen and, in doing so, empowered the citizens as the masters of their national fate.
In the 239 years since its adoption, the Constitution, much like the Bible, has been massaged, interpreted, misinterpreted, ignored, blasphemed, misquoted, misrepresented and amended. And, as it is with both, so much analysis and opinion has been applied to their principles that the core values they intended to nurture have been lost. Continue reading
Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu (D) who is in a tight race for re-election (as are a whole etouffee pot of Democrats nation-wide) has revealed to the world that the reason her campaign is in jeopardy is because of … racism. Oh, and sexism.
“I’m going to be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.
“It’s not always been a good place for women to be able to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place, so we’ve had to work a little bit harder on that.”
For decades, Republicans and conservatives have tried to point out to the black community that Democrats and liberals were taking them for granted. The blind devotion to the Democrat Party, they were told, has done nothing to improve their lot. Adopting Liberal politics has not only kept African-Americans from advancing, but those politics are in conflict with traditional values and religious beliefs.
It appears that is changing.
“They’re not pushing a family agenda. They’re pushing a neo-liberal agenda!”
There seems to be an assumption that Christians and the Constitution are symbiotic. Pundits on the right and the left equate the two with either pride or derision, depending on the argument of the day. The problem, though, is that Christianity is religion and the Constitution is the law. Folks are going to have to understand they can’t always have both. Continue reading
The Supreme Court ruled that state and local statutes do not supersede federal rights enumerated in the Second Amendment of the Constitution on the subject of gun ownership. The case instigating the court’s 5-4 ruling was McDonald vs. the City of Chicago in which a suburb, Oak Park, Illinois, banned the possession of handguns by private citizens.
As a conservative it is impossible for me to argue against the principles of the Tea Party. Lower taxes, smaller government, reduced government spending and Constitutional absolutism are solid, nay, essential ideals of a republican form of government. I don’t believe any Republican Party politician would disagree either, at least, not out loud. There may even be a few Democrats who will give a hearty “Amen,” though they might do so only under duress, and, even then, not mean it. Continue reading
