  By a faction, I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community. (James Madison, The [...]


[Occasionally I publish my reply to a comment on one of the articles I have published this week, along with the comment that occasioned it.  Here is an exchange related to my WND column this week “Which Candidate do I support?“] THE COMMENT I find it curious that after 200 years of electing imperfect men [...]


Ask most conservatives and they’ll agree that one of the things that characteristically distinguishes socialists from God-fearing constitutional conservatives is their attitude toward truth.  Socialists think that the ends justify the means.  They think that if something contributes to the outcome they have in view, whatever has to be said or done to produce it [...]


Reply to a Lincoln-Hater

[This comment and reply came in response to my recent article for the Daily Caller entitled Dr. Ben Carson is no Abraham Lincoln.] THE COMMENT The last thing we need is an Abraham Lincoln. Obama is a tyrant, but Lincoln was worse. Remember the habeas corpus? MY REPLY “The privilege of the writ of habeas [...]


Sorry Folks, The Donald is no Ronald Reagan

[This piece appeared as an article for on The Daily Caller back in July, 2015. I’m posting the full text here for reference.] One of the reasons I admired Ronald Reagan is that he opposed communism, but he didn’t fear it.  So, when he called us to stand against it, he didn’t simply rely on [...]

What is the consent of the governed?

In 1683, the forces of the Ottoman Empire were moving to besiege the city of Vienna. Once they had verified the Sultan’s intentions, what was the first thing the defenders of the city did?  They immediately inspected the city’s walls, to make sure that measures were taken to strengthen them everywhere they were in disrepair.  [...]


[This article concludes my critique of Justice Thomas’s dissent from the majority’s opinion in the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision, which I began in the last article published this week on my blog] Those who read Justice Thomas’s Obergefell dissent to the end will doubtless object to the critique I offered in the first part of this essay.  [...]


“…sed magis amica veritas” In the opening paragraph of his dissent from the majority in the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision re homosexual marriage Justice Thomas says: The Court’s decision today is at odds not only with the Constitution, but with the principles upon which our Nation was built. Since well before 1787, liberty has [...]

[A comment I made in response to a Facebook post that chided Christians (as even some Christian teachers often mistakenly do) for judging homosexuals rather than loving them.] People with homosexual inclinations, and even active homosexuals are not necessarily “unbelievers”, though many who promote homosexuality are. Active homosexuals are sinners, as are others who either [...]
