Democratic Socialism is Government Sanctioned Theft by Majority Vote

Today’s call for Democratic Socialism is all the rage. What is it? Advocates of Democratic socialism give lip service to capitalist markets only because they understand that they need the goose to lay the golden egg. If there is no golden egg, then there is nothing to tax and redistribute.

Who’s Smarter than a 5th Grader?: Ben Carson or Leftist Journalists

Ben Carson has said some odd things. His Pyramid claim does not fit with the text of Scripture, but it’s not a unique belief. It has some history behind it. His latest historical faux pas (or not) concerns the Constitution and the role Thomas Jefferson did or didn’t play in its

Law Professor Uses First Amendment to Dump on the Constitution

Stephen Prothero, a professor of religion at Boston University and the author of The American Bible: How Our Words United, Divide, and Define a Nation, has written “James Madison vs. Norquist” for USA Today.

Of Course a Majority of Americans Support Raising Taxes on Top Earners

Most of the people who were polled are not top earners, so it’s no surprise that a majority of them support raising taxes on top earners. Let’s take a poll of foxes who want to have access to the hen house? How about a poll of wolves who want to

Egypt Gets a New Dictator like the Old Dictator

“The Who” sung about it, warned about it, and Egypt got it: Meet the new boss Same as the old boss. Egypt’s president Mohammed Morsi “issued constitutional amendments that placed him above judicial oversight and ordered the retrial of Hosni Mubarak for the killing of protesters in last year’s uprising.”

Liberals Love the ‘General Welfare’ Clause

In a previous article, I pointed out that one commenter to an article I had written tried to argue that Jesus was an advocate for socialism. It’s an old story that lacks facts to back up the premise. In the same comment, he made the absurd claim that the United

What If ‘A Majority of Americans Support Slavery’?

An article I read carried this headline: “Big NY voter majority favors ‘millionaire tax.’” Articles like this one are designed to show that people with money should pay more taxes. If given the chance to vote on the issue, the majority of the people in the state of New York

‘President Obama, It’s Not Your Money!’

President Obama has decreed that he is going to tax people who make over $250,000 at a higher rate than people making less, and millions of people are OK with it. How did we get to the place when elected officials can tax American citizens at disproportionate rates to pay

Elected Officials Should Have to Pass a Test on the Constitution before Running for Office

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) says that support for nationalized healthcare is constitutional under the ‘Good and Welfare Clause.’ Huh? CNSNews.com asked Rep. Conyers, “What part of the Constitution do you think gives Congress the authority to mandate individuals to purchase health insurance?” Here was Conyers’ response:

What the First Amendment Really Says about Religion

Many people incorrectly maintain that the First Amendment was designed to remove any and all religious precepts and considerations from civil affairs. An example of this misinterpretation can be found in the Congressional Quarterly’s Guide to the U.S. Supreme Court: The two men most responsible for its inclusion in the

What You Don’t Know about the Constitution will Bankrupt You

For years I’ve run into people who appeal to the Constitution for justification of the welfare state. The theme of high taxes on the productive that should be redistributed to the “less fortunate” is based on a misreading of the “general welfare” clause found in Article I, section 8 of

How Liberals Use the Constitution to Make us Less Free

Liberals have a love/hate relationship with the Constitution. They love the Constitution when they can find some out-of-context word or phrase and add concepts that aren’t found in it in order to give constitutional credence to their unconstitutional laws. Liberals found the right to abortion in the “penumbra” of the

Rome and Darwin Come to Washington

Perhaps you’ve noticed that buildings in Washington D.C., with their columns and facades, are reminiscent of Roman architecture. Interestingly, some early American political writers called themselves by Roman names. The authors of The Federalist, a collection of 85 essays written in favor of the Constitution, did not use their real

Tracking Down Bogus History

Sloppy scholarship plays a role in fractured historical accounts as one writer quotes another writer without realizing that the first writer never based his study on original source documents for support of his historical claims. The quotation or referenced event is repeated so often by so many in any number
