A Parting of the Ways

President Obama has poured billions of tax dollars into a government take-over of the Auto Industry.  Fair Enough.  He is pushing through a Socialist agenda for a national healthcare system, which will effectively strip us of our options with regard to our medical care, while simultaneously creating...

The Courts and the Quest for Relevance

It was a good day for the American experiment, particularly for the least defined branch of the Federal Government. Most notably, the first African American President nominated the first Latino woman to the bench of the Supreme Court.  More on this in a moment, but all patriots should feel affirmed...

A World in Crisis?

Everyone & everywhere on the internet is talking about the latest panic: Swine Flu.  Although it hasn’t become a pandemic, apparently the potential is there.  Those who aren’t worrying about the latest virus to come down the pike remind us that we’re facing doom at the hands of...

Restoring the Nation

Taking a break from our ongoing discussion of the first principles of government, I wanted to reflect on the goals that we should have as the citizens, and more specifically the church, within this nation. Regardless of your politics, it is important to recognize this truth: no earthly government will...

Let Freedom Ring

The only freedom which deserves the name is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental or spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers...

Here’s your Tax: where’s my voice?

In honor of the annual day for rendering unto Caesar, it is appropriate to ask why we pay taxes. Ostensibly, taxes are the quid pro quo for the services we expect from the government.  We pay taxes, they give us roads.  We pay taxes, they provide us with a national defense.  We pay taxes, they form...

The Inalienable Three

As is no doubt clear, the desire to post regularly vies with the priorities of the rest of our lives.  Hopefully we will manage a fairly regular discourse until we get to Summer, when our schedules might become a little more free. However, my thoughts are never far from the issues we would like to...

Government & the People

Lang takes us to Lincoln; very apt, given my question.  After all, Lincoln vies with Washington for the top spot in the halls of our leaders, and rightfully so; they were the leaders whose individual tenacity and leadership created and preserved this union.  Under their respective eras of leadership, our nation...

The Question Is…

I was given the honor of posting the first substantial contribution to our shiny new forum on Government, Politics and Faith…and promptly drew a blank.  Perhaps it was the result of the growing amount of work in other areas of my life, or perhaps it was the pressure of writing the FIRSTpost to...
