    • White House “offense” aside, might does not make right - 17 Oct 2012
      posted in Daily Jot & Politics & Government

      Part of the problem with true “democracy” is that might makes right. It is the foundation stone for socialism, communism, fascism, even Islamism. The one who yells the loudest or has the most troops, wins. Law doesn’t matter, rules don’t matter. Morals don’t matter. Might matters. Preserving individual rights through [...]

    • On the Road to Death Panels - 15 Oct 2012
      posted in Contributor

      With the first presidential debate and the only vice-presidential debate behind us, it seems pretty clear that so-called “social issues” are not going to get much attention in this year’s presidential politics. It’s unfortunate, I think. We deceive ourselves to permit the assumption that values and behavior are not the [...]

    • The Significance of Party Platforms - 19 Sep 2012
      posted in Contributor & Politics & Government

      House Speaker John Boehner was quoted during the Republican National Convention as saying, “Have you ever met anybody who read the Party platform? I never met anybody.” Scoffing at the Party’s platform is the typical attitude of establishment-backed politicians who don’t want to be bothered with addressing the hopes and [...]

    • Morning Brief: September 5 - 05 Sep 2012
      posted in Medicine & Morning Brief & Politics & Government & Religion

      Democrats End One Hypocrisy Several weeks ago, we interviewed Bishop E. W. Jackson who said that all Christians, regardless of race or background, should leave the Democrat party. Based on the events of yesterday at the DNC, I’d say he’s got a pretty good case. The Dems removed the term [...]

    • Good and Bad Immigration Proposals - 31 Aug 2012
      posted in Contributor

      After a genuinely grassroots Republican platform committee produced a principled document on a plethora of issues, including immigration, some people who were not part of the process are promoting pro-amnesty proposals. Writing this week in the Wall Street Journal, Jon Huntsman suggested that President Obama’s executive order offering work permits [...]

    • Can Mitt Romney Reach Christians? - 12 Jun 2012
      posted in Politics & Government

      Framing the election to Christians around Mitt Romney For President is a mistake from my perspective. Steve Deace and Matt Barber both have it “Framed Wrong” in my judgment; barring a miracle, the Romney campaign political triangulation strategy gets him killed with Evangelicals and Pro-Life Catholics. Voter guides and endorsements [...]

    • Tea Party bringing cash to 2012 elections - 12 Oct 2011
      posted in National & Politics & Government

      Republican candidates in the 2012 U.S. elections will have a powerful weapon they lacked four years ago — heavy spending from groups aligned with the conservative Tea Party movement. After a warm-up in 2010, when they spent tens of millions of dollars to help sway congressional races, supporters of the [...]

    • As a Model for Values, Ron Paul Prefers ‘Our Original King, Our Creator’ to the Gov’t - 11 Oct 2011
      posted in Politics & Government

      Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul says he would rather look to God – “the original king” and creator – than to the government as a model for moral values. Addressing the Values Voters Summit in Washington D.C. on Saturday, Paul said it was in his view “impossible” to get [...]

    • Tea Party founder surging ahead in polls - 26 Aug 2011
      posted in Politics & Government

      WASHINGTON — Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul says he’s the Rodney Dangerfield of U.S. politics, griping recently that he gets no respect from the media in terms of coverage even after finishing a close second to Michele Bachmann in the often game-changing Iowa straw poll. The media, Paul said at [...]

    • Tea Party Group Slams Rep. Waters Over ‘Straight to Hell’ Outburst - 22 Aug 2011

      A national Tea Party group urged Democrats to adhere to their own calls for civility after Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters told a restless crowd over the weekend that the “Tea Party can go straight to hell.” Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin, who lead the Tea Party Patriots, suggested President [...]
