In Political Parties, What’s the Difference?

Posted by on Dec 4, 2014

In politics, as in most spheres of life, generalities are often based upon observation and reflect a measure of truth, however inaccurate in the details.  (“White men can’t jump.”) In politics we often hear that there is no difference in the two major political parties.  George Wallace, Ronald Reagan, Ross Perot, Howard Phillips, Patrick Buchanan, Alan Keyes, etc., have all beat that drum, as a rallying cry.  And there’s a large measure of truth to the charge.  After all, both parties love deficit...

Voter fraud should not be an issue in 2014 America

Posted by on Dec 4, 2014

The voter fraud issue has again reared its ugly head, this time in Louisiana. Democrat mayor, and the father of Senator Mary Landrieu’s Chief of Staff, Don Cravins, Sr. gave a campaign rally speech urging the Democrat voters in attendance to “vote again” if they had early voted. He continued the speech by telling voters to support the local Democrat DA candidate, joking that, if elected, the DA wouldn’t prosecute the fraudulent voters. Voter fraud is a serious issue, committing it is a serious crime, ...

The Election is Over, Let’s Go Back to Sleep.

Posted by on Nov 6, 2014

Obviously, no one ever says that, but that’s precisely what millions of Americans do.  Which is precisely why this country is in such a mess.  The fact is, now that the election is over, you and I have work to do.  Your elected public servants were not elected just to do what they want to do, nor did you send them there to do what some invisible agency tells them they ought to do.1  There is only one thing that can get a public servant’s attention, and that is the threat, real or perceived, that you can unelect them, or...

Christian Voting for People

Posted by on Oct 28, 2014

When a Christian votes, the common sentiment is to vote for others who also claim to be Christian or who proclaim a stand on one or more issues that are perceived to be consistent with Christianity.  However, the Scripture does have numerous requirements for those who would ascend to political leadership.  Some of the clearest is Deuteronomy 17 which sets out the qualifications for a king. At first glance we may assume this doesn’t apply since we have no king or that it only applies to a national head, such as a president or prime...

A Populist Path To Power?

Posted by on Jun 14, 2014

If Jeb and Hillary are both in the lists in 2016, it will be God’s gift to pitchfork populists. “I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” If Thomas Jefferson’s benign reflection on Shays’ Rebellion, that uprising of farmers in 1786 and 1787, is not the first thought that comes to mind today for his fellow Virginian Eric Cantor, surely it is understandable. For the rebellious subjects of the 7th Congressional District just voted to end...

Scott Wagner’s presumed win a historic first

Posted by on Mar 20, 2014

Update: Politicos and election officials are confirming Republican Scott Wagner’s apparent victory in the 28th Senate as the first time a write-in candidate has won an election for state Senate in Pennsylvania. Only about 22,300 voters cast ballots in Tuesday’s special election, for a turnout of 13.6 percent, according to unofficial numbers from the county’s elections office. Here’s The York Dispatch’s coverage of the historic win: In what appears to be an unexpected victory for a conservative businessman who has...

Cruz Control?

Posted by on Feb 20, 2014

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration...

GOP Would Rather Shove “Immigration Reform” Down Our Throats Than Win Elections

Posted by on Jan 17, 2014

I write this as an “open borders/free residency” conservative. That is: Other than law enforcement and national security (both of which are important and need to be taken seriously!) I don’t think we should stop people from coming here and working here. I take it for granted that welfare should be off limits and that people who become citizens should be required to speak English and pass serious civics tests. The fact that we can’t trust liberals to do things that we should all take for granted is the best argument, to my mind, for...

Our Real Roots

Posted by on Nov 10, 2013

Are you tired of hearing today’s conventional wisdom telling us that the Bible had no part in the founding of this country? Or that the Founders wanted something called “separation of Church and State”? Or that America was not raised up to greatness by our Christian heritage? Read this, share it with your children, and then make it available to every educator you know. It’s time to push back with facts and assert ourselves as Christians who have a duty to try to save this country from its suicidal path of abandoning...
