Should Christians Vote For The Lesser of Two Evils?

September 1, 2012

“Pretend with me that you’re an old German on your deathbed today. Would you rather tell your grandchildren, ‘I voted for the Nazis because they seemed better than the Communists and no other party could win’? Wouldn’t you rather be able to rise up and say, ‘I publicly denounced the Nazis and the Communists? We were a minority – 1 or 2 percent – but we stood up for the truth and we were right! We proved not all Germans were mindless torchbearers for tyranny! We were ridiculed, we were beaten and jailed,... Read article

TSA Does Not Keep You Safe. It Never Has. It Never Will

July 15, 2012

In a little less than a week, I will be flying for the third time this year. When I get to the airport, I will be faced with three abhorrent choices: Have myself photographed in my birthday suit by one of those very possibly cancer-causing nudie-nukers. Have my crotch groped by some tax-mainlining pervert in an act that anywhere else would constitute sexual assault. This is also full of health risks. Not flying. And if you are going to say, “Then just don’t fly”, then you just don’t get it. As Vin Suprynowicz... Read article

“I’m Not Going to Plead Guilty to Using My Medicine.”

January 29, 2012

Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies … those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. – C.S. Lewis Fair Haven, a quaint little town of about 6000 residents somewhere in the swamps of Jersey, holds a very special place in my heart and life. Why? Because I grew up there. Home. It is also the home of my... Read article

Why Iran Doesn’t Scare Me

December 31, 2011

The screaming meemies in the War Party have their undies in a bunch over the prospect of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon. So? Israel has over 100 nuclear warheads. The U.S. has thousands of nuclear warheads. Just one of our Ohio-class submarines can carry 192 nuclear warheads. 192 Irans in one metal tube. Ahmedinejad is a lot of bad things. However, he is not stupid. What do you think the U.S. or Israel would do if he were to attack either of us? I will let this be a rhetorical question. And besides, if he were to nuke... Read article

Three Reasons Why Ron Paul Appeals To Young People

December 2, 2011

Denver talk host David Sirota wrote a very fine essay this week on Ron Paul’s appeal among voters aged 18 to 29. Contrary to common belief, this popularity is not simply a matter of their wanting to burn hippie lettuce.* Rather, Sirota says, it is that they have a principled stance against America’s endless wars. I want to approach this question from a different angle: how one’s life experience often   profoundly influences one’s worldview. There are three major cultural reasons for Ron Paul’s appeal to younger... Read article

Which Occupiers Scare You More?

November 20, 2011

This is not about which side you take regarding Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Denver or Occupy Big Belch, Arkansas. Some things ought to frighten you more. I saw this picture the other day of police dressed in full combat gear dispersing the crowd at Occupy Chapel Hill, home of the University of North Carolina. Such grotesquely excessive displays of power by police have become commonplace in America over the last two decades. The police – along with the FBI, IRS, DEA, DHS, TSA, BATF, etc. – are becoming exactly the kind... Read article

Paterno, Clinton and Gingrich: Why Personal Morals Matter

November 15, 2011

(If you are not a sports degenerate like I am, please bear with me for a few paragraphs.) It is such a shocking and tragic story on so many levels that no one knows where to begin. Just over a week ago, Joe Paterno was the most revered figure in contemporary American sports. He led the Penn State Nittany Lions football team to a Division I record 409 victories, two national championships and six undefeated seasons. Moreover, he had been a beacon of integrity and honor in the hideously corrupt world of college sports. In... Read article

Jesus: Prince of Peace or God of War?

November 13, 2011

Someone I like and respect made the following comment on Facebook the other evening: “I’m fairly silent about religion. Why? Because I’m not interested in taking the … liberties and lives, of drug dealers and pornographers. And, I’m not interested in making war on people who didn’t first make war on me. I’m not interested in religions that enlist me to start violent fights.” It is very sad that the common perception of Christians and Christianity has come to this. Several years ago, I heard a preacher say... Read article

“They Don’t Know Anything More About Real Battle Than They Do About Fornicating”

October 22, 2011

The numbers are in. For the second and third quarters of 2011, Ron Paul. the only truly antiwar candidate in the race, has received more contributions from active duty military personnel than all other candidates combined. There are those who sell us our wars. And there is another segment of society that actually spills its blood fighting them. For the first group, war is a video game. For the second it is a bloody and gruesome reality. The first group does everything it can to deny Ron Paul’s very existence. The second... Read article

9/11: Even If the Official Story Is True, the Official Response Is Still Wrong

October 2, 2011

I am going to assume, for the sake of this article, that 9/11 happened exactly according to the official story. Even if this story is entirely true, the official response has still been totally wrong, as have been the oft-repeated clichés of those who believe the official story. Some examples: 1.     The terrorists hate us for our freedom. Even in 2001, America had the world’s highest incarceration rate. Were we that free? They far more likely hate us for our invasions, occupations, coups, bombings, sanctions... Read article

Freedom Before Football: Boycott The NFL

September 18, 2011

To paraphrase the 1978 tune “Dreadlock Holiday” by 10cc: I don’t like sports, I love them. Even if you are not into sports, this still pertains to you. It is about what you value. What are your priorities? Will you trade your birthright as an American for a few hours of entertainment pottage? Will you draw the line now and speak up when the cost of doing so is relatively minor? Or will you wait until dissent equals treason and is punished by death? Tyranny is like cancer in that early detection is of monumental importance. For... Read article

9/11: Why I Don’t Buy The Official Story

September 11, 2011

“In war, the first casualty is the truth.” – Aeschylus, Greek dramatist, 525-456 B.C. Where were you on the morning of September 11, 2001 when you heard The News? I was finishing breakfast and listening to Peter Boyles on KHOW 630 in Denver.  I vividly remember him interrupting the conversation and saying something like “We have just received word that an airplane has crashed into one of the World Trade Center towers in New York.” I turned on the TV set and saw a massive cloud of black smoke emanating from near... Read article

Why Is Marijuana Illegal?

August 26, 2011

“Because it is bad for you,” say the moral nanomanagers of the world. Meanwhile, out in real life, the Heart Attack Grill is alive and well and operating in Downtown Dallas. (Their other location in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler recently shut its doors voluntarily after its 575-pound spokesman went to meet his Maker at age 29.) These menu items from the Heart Attack Grill are perfectly legal. A plant that God gave us in the eleventh verse of the Bible is not legal. And why can this Arizona woman do this to... Read article

America Is Not A Free Country – 2011 Edition

July 4, 2011

Independence Day is upon us. This July 4 we will celebrate the 235th anniversary of our independence from Britain and our birth as a free nation. We will watch fireworks, go to barbecues, go camping (at tax-funded state and national parks), go to baseball games (in tax-funded stadiums) and hear endless talk about how goldurned wonderful it is that we live in a free country. Or do we live in a free country? Consider the following. In a free country, taxation would be well-nigh non-existent. You could keep what you earned... Read article

Why Very Little Surprises Me Anymore

June 22, 2011

I don’t know if the above statement is a good thing or a bad thing. However, it sums up where I am emotionally now when it comes to the daily headlines. In late 1991, I started waking up to the galloping destruction of liberty in America, and I turned my back on the political mainstream. At first, I was merely changing my political positions. Then, slowly, as a Christian, I realized there was a spiritual shift here. Yes, I am still concerned about politics. However, as things deteriorate in so many ways, I am much... Read article
